Tapage et Symphonie (Racket and Symphony) features poet Dominic Langlois and musician Andrew Creeggan

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – On Thursday, Tapage et Symphonie (Racket and Symphony) featuring poet Dominic Langlois and musician Andrew Creeggan will be performing in the Confederation Centre of the Arts Gallery as part of this year’s Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre program.

Langlois, who hails from Quebec, spent many years on Prince Edward Island before moving to Moncton, N.B. He is deeply involved in the cultural and musical scene in both provinces. Langlois also has published two books of poetry at Éditions Perce-Neige: “Mener du train” (2010) and “La rue en eaux troubles” (2012), and a novel, “Le trésor de Memramcook.”

Creeggan is a founding member of Barenaked Ladies along with his brother Jim. The pair also released four albums as The Brothers Creeggan. After being accepted into the Faculty of Music at McGill University, Creeggan went on to pursue instrumental music, focusing on theory and composition, and now lives in Moncton, N.B.

Creeggan's three solo works: “Andiwork,” “Andiwork II,” and “Andiwork III,” are largely instrumental pieces that consist of more contemporary classical, with touches of jazz and rock.

The first part of the evening will consist of a poetry reading accompanied by original piano compositions by Creeggan and will be followed by a solo performance by Creeggan.

The Nov. 30 presentation begins at 7:30 p.m.
