SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. - The music community on P.E.I. is honouring late musician Nathan Condon and hoping to raise awareness of suicide prevention in the process.
Condon died from suicide in August 2017 at the age of 32.
He began playing music from a young age and never looked back. Prior to his death he was a member of a number of groups such as Blue Streak, Not All There, Michael Pendergast.
Condon recorded and released two albums before he was 20 years old. He was nominated for a number of awards through the P.E.I. Music Awards Association, and took home three titles for his album, “A Feeling Comes Over Me.”
Special guest Kelley Mooney will headline the event. Other guest performers include Devon Broome, Dave Wigmore, Samantha MacKay, Kevin Arthur and Jason Campbell.
All proceeds from the event will go to suicide prevention through Lennon House in North Rustico.
Those interested in donating prior to the event can do so on the Lennon House website at Lennonhouse.ca.
If you would like to have a loved one, who has died as a result of suicide, remembered at the concert can send a photo along with the person’s name, date of birth and date of death to firstname.lastname@example.org.
