Last night kicked off the weekend long festivities on Prince Edward Island for the Credit Union May Run Music Festival! Between 15 venues across the province with more than 70 artists and bands coming together, this is a weekend you do not want to miss. Last night were the Bluegrass and Heavyweight showcases but there is plenty more to come before the closing concerts on Sunday, May 17th.
Most venues are selling tickets at the door to the events but if you want to make sure you’re there for all the action head on over tohttp://www.mayrunmusicfest.com/#!tickets/cs8c and get your tickets in advance.
Some of the many shows to come over the rest of the weekend include The Song Writer’s Concert at Harmony House Theatre, and PEI Brewing Company’s House Of Rock at the PEI Brewing Company on the 15th, May Run Fiddle Fun Ceilidh at The Old Triangle, Cavendish Beach Music Festival Country Jubilee at the Harbourfront Theatre, and The Dockside Concert at the Harbourfront Room in the Delta on the 16th, and the closing Songwriter’s Circle and closing Pop Show on the 17th, both at the Delta Prince Edward Hotel.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
