Old Man Luedecke
Saturday, 7:30 p.m., The Mack, Charlottetown

Old Man Luedecke is the real thing, a modern-day people's poet and travelling bard and balladeer. He's played around the world to a loving and increasing fan base, and won two Juno Awards in the process. Luedecke channels a refreshing energy from folk giants like Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, but it's his contemporary lyrics coupled with the irresistible rhythm of the old-time banjo that make him so loved with his audiences.

The Harbourfront Players in Maggie's Getting Married
Saturday, 7:30 p.m., Harbourfront Theatre, Summerside

The Harbourfront Players are back with “Maggie’s Getting Married” by Norm Foster. The Duncan family asks you to save the date because their daughter Maggie is getting married — or is she? It’s normal for people to have cold feet just before a wedding, but at the post-rehearsal reception, one person – who shouldn’t – recalls the groom as having warm feet. It’s a delightful comedy about love, family, and marriage from Canada’s most-produced playwright Norm Foster.

The Olympic Symphonium
Saturday, 7:30 p.m., The Dunk, Breadalbane

The Olympic Symphonium make their Dunk return to debut songs off their just released fifth album, Beauty in the Tension. BYOB, snacks for sharing. The Olympic Symphonium consists of four distinct and diverse songwriters who have crafted a full, lush sound that is entirely their own. A sound that features emotional musical flourishes, soaring harmonies that float in and out, and dramatic lyrical content. It is the sound of a strange and beautiful tension. Whether it’s the complexity of family life, the inevitability of death, the mundanity of life on the road, or struggles with mental illness, each band member writes with their own life experiences in mind and combines those with that of the other members in a to form one strong and varied body of work.
