Description

George Canyon, Taw Connors and Whiskey Jack presents Stories & Songs by Stompin’ Tom to headline the 2nd annual Stompin’ Tom Festival,

June 29 – July 1 in Skinners Pond, PEI

The Stompin’ Tom Festival is excited to announce its 2018 headliners for its 2nd annual event in Skinners Pond, Prince Edward Island, Friday, June 29 to Sunday, July 1.

Kicking off the festival on Friday, June 29 is a performance by the son of the legendary Stompin’ Tom Connors himself, country musician Taw Connors. Opening the show that evening, from West Prince, PEI, is country artist, Daniel Drouin.

On Saturday, June 30, the festival welcomes award-winning Canadian country singer, George Canyon, whose new album Southside of Heaven will be released on May 25. Special guest for that show is award-winning country musician and Palmer Road, PEI native Ben Chase.

To celebrate Canada Day, Sunday, July 1 on the outdoor stage, the festival features; Whiskey Jack presents Stories & Songs by Stompin’ Tom, a 100% Canadian show – that is not only a portrait of Whiskey Jack’s years on stage with Stompin' Tom - but also anecdotes and songs from their years as cast members on the CBC's Tommy Hunter Show. It includes a multi-media presentation featuring audio clips and photos from the band's many years on stage with these two Canadian giants. Current Whiskey Jack members include, founding member Duncan Fremlin, who has been with the group for 41 years, Douglas John Cameron, Randy Morrison, Eric Jackson, and Dave Carruthers. Joining Whiskey Jack for this special first-time Maritime performance is well-known Canadian country and folk artist, Cindy Church.

Also, performing on Sunday is local group, Waylon’s Drinking Buddies performing old and new country hits.

“A unique thing about the Stompin’ Tom festival is that features all Canadian artists,” says Anne Arsenault, Festival Director and General Manager of the Stompin’ Tom Centre. “That is something Tom himself wanted - he was a fierce Canadian who stood up and fought for his principles and recognition of home grown Canadian music - this is why Canada Day weekend is the most appropriate time to be celebrating his legacy with a festival in his honour and paying it forward featuring new and existing Canadian artists!”

In addition to a fantastic musical line up, the Stompin’ Tom Festival offers an amazing food experience. The Taste of PEI food tent menu will feature culinary delights that PEI is famous for, including fresh oysters, steamed mussels, lobster tails, seafood chowder, bacon wrapped potatoes, potato salad, beef burger sliders, strawberry shortcake, blueberry cake, and lots more.
