Trinity United concert series in Summerside offers Remembrance Day Special on Thursdayov. 8

SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. - Phase II and Friends will take to the stage at Trinity United Church on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m., for another show in the Fall and Winter Concert Series.

The Remembrance Day Special is a two-part show which features a script about the tragedy of war as well as honouring the many men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. The music is varied and includes songs by John McDermott and Gordon Lightfoot, along with traditional songs like “Waltzing Matilda” and “One Tin Soldier”, the theme of the movie, “Billy Jack”. 

There will also be a few protest tunes, and a couple of poems.

The second part of the show will feature a singalong featuring some of the old, familiar tunes from the war years. 

The Phase II team has worked very hard on this show to entertain, educate and inform audience members. They believe they owe much to those who fought in the wars.

Keila Glydon and Jeanie Campbell are a welcome addition to the formerly all-male dance band. Other band members include Ed Young, drummer, Pat King, keyboards and saxophone, John McGarry, bass, and original founders Blaine Murphy, lead guitar, and Gerry Hickey, vocals.
