CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

The traditional music duo of Jesse Periard and Rowen Gallant will be appearing at the new Trailside Music Hall in Charlottetown on Sept. 18, 7:30 p.m., with a new set of songs, tunes and stories. 

Having toured successfully for six years across North America, Australia and Europe with the Juno-nominated, multiple ECMA-award-winning band Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, guitarist Periard and fiddler Gallant (along with percussionist Caleb Gallant) parted ways in 2018 to pursue projects and explore passions of their own designs. 

Now, Periard and Gallant have reunited to sound the depths of Island history and tradition through music, preserving the trio’s signature mercurial and hot-blooded style while also bringing two years of technical and musical growth. 

In August, the duo previewed its new show to fierce effect to a packed house at the temporary Trailside Music Cafe location at the Holman Grand hotel. Now, the duo is excited to be performing at the Trailside’s new permanent location, a cabaret style venue located in the recently opened Arts Hotel on Kent Street and run by the original Trailside owners, Pat and Meghann Deighan.
