The Stories of Atlantic Canada’s Iconic Songwriters


spotlight

Celebrated PEI born singer/songwriter, Tara MacLean, takes you on a journey into the past, telling the story of how music arrived and thrived on the East Coast of Canada. Atlantic Blue is about the place and the people behind classic songs like Sonny’s Dream, Put Your Hand in the Hand, Fare Thee Well Love, Movin’ on, Working Man, and many more, who found a way to create beauty from the challenging experiences in their own lives.

The depth of this show comes from Tara’s own relationship with each of these writers. To ensure historical accuracy, she worked with those living songwriters and the families/representatives of those who are no longer with us. Using film for the biographies of these brilliant writers, and live music to illustrate their work, Tara’s epic voice transports the audience, locals and tourists alike, to a place of deeper understanding and connection with Atlantic Canada and our most treasured music. Atlantic Blue is a captivating experience that is sure to bring Atlantic Canadians together in celebration and solidarity for our way of life and the songs that helped the world fall in love with us.
