Souris Show Hall

Souris Show Hall, 5 Church Ave., Souris, PEI

Raised on the mud banks of the Avon River, award-winning Nova Scotian funeral director-turned-songwriter Terra Spencer charms audiences with her deft guitar, gospel piano, butterscotch voice, crackling wit, and wood-paneled warmth. Her startlingly intimate songs have caught the eye of collaborators including David Francey, Ben Caplan, and Matt Andersen. Every show is a knee-to-knee conversation with a natural storyteller. “The real deal.” Ron Sexsmith

Announcing ticket sales for the big show on August 11th! For those who don't know there is an evening of art and music planned at the Little Harbour Community Centre on August 11th. Tickets: $30 All inquiries and ticket purchases can be made by contacting: eastcoasterstudios@gmail.com or janet.ervin@bellaliant.net What is the evening going to look like? From 6.30 until about 7.45 several local artists will have their work on display and for sale. I'll share more details on artists who will be there will as we get closer to the date. I will have a variety of art items and lots of pottery for sale. The bar will be open during this time. I'm thrilled to say that we have two incredible musicians booked. I have watched Jud Gunning for the past few years grow into an incredible musician and have been absolutely blown away by his musicianship and incredible guitar playing. You can't not smile when listening to Jud play. ( www.judgunning.com ) "Jud has a genuine love for playing music and has been making a name for himself in the Nova Scotian music scene. With performances at the Stan Rogers Folk Festival, the Pictou Lobster Carnival and the New Glasgow Jubilee under his belt, Jud has captivated live audiences across the Maritime provinces, and has only just begun." Dedicated to the craft of guitar playing, with an appreciation for artists such as Chet Atkins, Doc Watson, John Allan Cameron, Buddy Holly, Roger Miller, Hank Snow, Stompin’ Tom Connors and the Delmore Brothers, Jud Gunning has been building up a strong repertoire of classic songs and instrumentals. The first time I ever heard a Terra Spencer song I was an instant fan. She is an incredible singer-songwriter and the person I would vote as 'most likely to make me cry' with her moving and powerful songs. (www.terraspencer.ca) "Bad ideas, VCRs, crumbling factories, terrible therapists, hairy dogs, wrinkled shirts, French fries, questionable tattoos...all are fair game for Nova Scotian funeral director-turned-songwriter Terra Spencer. And the songs are good ones, judging from the stack of awards her three albums have received, and from the caliber of her collaborators, which include David Francey, Ben Caplan, and Matt Andersen. Although her butterscotch voice, deft fingerstyle guitar, and gospel-charged piano make her a formidable musician, it's her onstage ease and crackling wit that make each show feel like a knee-to-knee conversation in a room of 5 or 500." “The real deal.” - Ron Sexsmith There are even rumours of a 'Brewnose' after party...

The paths of Nova Scotian funeral director-turned-songwriter Terra Spencer and lively Newfoundland duo Youngtree and Carole Bee converged at a music festival in summer 2022, when they discovered a shared love of songs exploring the darker side of life and the lighter side of death. Their combined forces promise an evening that runs the gamut from tender storytelling to lively instrumentals to quick-witted confessionals, first presented last year with a week-long tour in Nova Scotia, now coming for a summer run around Newfoundland, starting at Two Whales in Port Rexton.

Arts Under the Stars ends its season with a spectacular FREE show at Elizabeth Swan Park!
