Evolve, Canadian Music Week, and Indieweek, and Downey is thrilled to be making their debut at Confederation Centre.
“The centre actually gave us one of our first big breaks, bringing us to the Vancouver Olympics for Atlantic Canada House,” the dreadlocked front-man recalls. “I feel that there's a unique kinship between P.E.I. and Newfoundland that comes from growing up on an island,” he continues. “It's as if we all knew that even if we were cut off from everything else, we'd still find comfort in the music. The boys and I feel quite at home on P.E.I.”
Tickets are available at Confederation Centre’s box office at 566-1267 and toll-free at 1-800-565-0278, online at confederationcentre.com, or in person at the concert.
