Gahan Beacon Blonde Ale presents Songwriter’s Circle: Lawrence Maxwell, Nick Doneff, & Shane Pendergast July 27th!
About this event
Shane Pendergast is a folksinger from Tracadie Cross, Prince Edward Island. He learned to play by ear at an early age, immersed in a culture of family kitchen parties. Shane’s connection to Maritime folk music dates back to the efforts of his great-grandparents, preservers of folklore in P.E.I. Shane is carrying the torch forward with his own songs of Maritime lore and life experiences. Shane is known as an old-school troubadour, and “might just become the East Coast’s de facto King of Folk.” (The East). His 2021 album “Second Wind” won Contemporary Roots Album of the Year at the Music PEI Awards.
Nick’s sophomore recording, The Late August Days, is out now! The 9-song album features contributions from Jim Creeggan (Barenaked Ladies), Catherine MacLellan, Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson), Dave Haskett (Shawn Mendes), Blair Packham (The Jitters), Aaron Comeau (Skydiggers), and more!
Maxwell hails from Prince Edward Island, Canada’s smallest province but one with a rich country music history based in every citizen’s relationship to the land and sea. In fact, before launching his musical career, Maxwell served in the Royal Canadian Navy upon graduating high school where, during downtime aboard his warship, he would compose thoughts that would lay the groundwork for his 2018 debut album Not Your Outlaw.
