Flowing seamlessly from storytelling to interactive songs, Michael Pendergast kicked off the P.E.I. Mutual Festival of Small Halls lead-up event at the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada, on Saturday morning.
Proceeds from this show, which is presented by Summerside’s music store Long and McQuade, go to a local children’s charity.
“Entry is by donation and all proceeds go to the IWK Music Therapy program,” said executive director of Small Halls Inc., Jennifer Campbell.
After Pendergast performed, families got to pluck, strum or drum a range of musical instruments donated by Long and McQuade.
