The rich cultural fabric of our island has been woven from the many threads of settlers hailing from all corners of the earth. When these ancestral settlers came to Prince Edward Island, they brought their music with them. Join the Atlantic String Machine as they trace our musical heritage from Mi’kmaq Lullabies to Celtic Airs to Acadian Laments. This entertaining show, featuring actor/narrator Cameron MacDuffee, is sure to delight islanders and visitors alike. Come discover the music of our island’s peoples, past and present, and truly experience the “Heartbeat of the Island”!
The Atlantic String Machine was formed in April 2015 and is based on Prince Edward Island. The group is made up of five string players who have performed worldwide with internationally recognized symphony and chamber orchestras, ensembles, bands and artists. They have recently joined together to present a wide range of repertoire from classical to jazz, pop, world music and their own compositions.
