Music at MERA is proud to announce a concert featuring PEI folksinger/songwriter, Shane Pendergast on Sunday, December 10th at 2:00 PM. Joining him will be Mia Kelly, who has performed at MERA several times over the years.
Shane has folk music in his blood. Hailing from a long lineage of storytellers and musicians in Prince Edward Island, he is keeping the Maritime folk tradition alive with his honest and insightful compositions. From acclaimed folk festivals to the back rooms of Toronto cafes, Shane has cemented himself as one of Atlantic Canada’s finest young folk troubadours. His 2021 album Second Wind won Contemporary Roots Album of the Year at the Music PEI Awards, and his live album The House Before the Bridge was nominated for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year at the 2023 ECMA Awards.
Mia Kelly returns from a successful summer of touring from coast to coast, performing more than 40 concerts with such artists as Valdy, Old Man Luedecke, among others. Mia also has been nominated in both the Ontario and national folk awards, which will be decided in April, 2024. Mia will demonstrate her strong vocal and songwriting skills, along with her compelling stage presence.
