Lennie brings back his musical theatre show, Searching for Abegweit: The Island Songs & Stories of Lennie Gallant, for audiences in PEI this summer. A runaway hit boasting sold out shows for the past 2 seasons.  The show is presented by PEI Brewing Company and will be staged at the PEI Brewing Company Culinary Event Space in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

Woven around the music of the award-winning Island songwriter, this P.E.I. love-letter stars Gallant himself, and presents his folk, roots and pop music, alongside comedic stories, Island legends, and poignant tales in a multimedia format that utilizes film, and visual works from well-known painter Karen Gallant. This dynamic, energetic show is storytelling at its best and includes Acadian and Celtic numbers that will have you dancing in your seat in celebration of Canada’s cradle on the waves.The colourful spectacle will offer Lennie Gallant favourites such as ‘Peter’s Dream’ ‘Tales of the Phantom Ship’ and ‘Island Clay’ along with new Island-themed songs.
