Sounds of Summer: Shannon & Tony Quinn and Inn Echo
Aug 19 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Tickets: $25
or Pay What You Wish

Shannon & Tony Quinn

Shannon and Tony have been performing together as a duo for over twenty years.
They’ve performed at many Folk and Irish festivals throughout North America, as well as theatres and private events throughout Canada, and many corporate events.
Their style of fiddle and guitar is based in traditional Irish and Celtic music, however they regularly incorporate modern material and vocal selections into their performance repertoire.
Tony is well-known throughout Atlantic Canada as a comedian and emcee, as well as being recognized as an accomplished guitar player and producer.
Shannon has performed with The Chieftains, Cirque Du Soleil, and has toured internationally with the Paul McKenna Band from Glasgow, and throughout Canada with Joel Plaskett on his ’solidarity’ tour, as well as Jimmy Rankin and Lennie Gallant.
Shannon has released three albums which have been nominated for multiple national awards (Winner of two Music nova Scotia awards, nominated for three ECMA’s and two Canadian Folk Music Awards).
The first of which was recorded with Tony entitled ’The Irwin Lake Sessions’.
They have just released a new instrumental duo recording entitled ’20 Summers’ to celebrate the twenty plus years they’ve been playing music together.
Shannon is currently playing fiddle for the new musical ’Tell Tale Harbour’ at the Charlottetown Festival starring Alan Doyle. 

Inn Echo

Inn Echo weave hundreds of years of traditional tunes with contemporary originals and arrangements that both soar and make you catch your breath simultaneously. With technical precision, their mastery of instruments is the talk in the national and international folk music scene. From Music PEI awards to tours of Austria and Ireland, Inn Echo is bar none the traditional band to watch as they emerge as Prince Edwards Islands greatest Celtic fusion exports in years to come.

Innovative, creatively-crafted, and what Roots Music Canada coins as “a powerful sound,” the soundscape laid down by this three-piece instrumental group is both wildly dynamic and delightfully distinctive – rightfully earning them Emerging Artist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year nominations for the 2020 Music PEI Awards.

Playing festivals such as Ireland’s largest music festival, the All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil; a slew of renowned festivals throughout Canada such as Quebec’s Festival Mémoire et Racines, the Indian River Festival, and the Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival; and performing as 2021 ECMA showcase artists, Inn Echo is comprised of four musicians who hail from places all over the world – as this in itself is a key reason for their musical diversity in what they bring to life together. Fiddler Karson McKeown is from Ottawa, Ontario; cellist/fiddler Tuli Porcher is from Victoria, B.C.; and guitarist Tom Gammons, from Montana, USA, is a newly-added member for the group, whose “sound fits seamlessly with the band’s vision” describes The East Mag.

Releasing a debut self-titled album in 2019 which earned them a Roots/Traditional Recording of the Year nomination at the 2020 Music PEI Awards, Inn Echo followed this up with a critically-acclaimed EP called Winter’s End in 2020, which has already received a Music PEI 2021 nomination for Instrumental Recording of the Year.

Inn Echo’s name was brought forth from two different sources: The ‘Inn’ refers to the inn where Tuli lived (and where the group rehearses), and the ‘Echo’ refers to the band’s vision of echoing different musical traditions from their 3 homelands – as these are all distinct echoes of who each of them are. And when you hear even just one Inn Echo song, it will be easy to derive another reason for their name: their music will keep reverberating in your soul long after you listen.
