Ava + Lily
Aug 6 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Ava & Lily Rashed are 17-yr-old twins from Charlottetown Prince Edward Island who are set to take up the torch in a long-time family music tradition.

Their great grandfather was Country Hall of famer Charlie Chamberlain from Don Messer and the Islanders, and their father, David Rashed, the keyboardist for platinum-selling 80’s pop/rock band Haywire.

In the spring of 2019, one of the girls video’s on Instagram caught the eye of a casting agent from Los Angeles and they were asked to be one of 30 participants on Nickelodeon’s new talent show America’s Most Musical Family where they competed till the semi final round.

As multi-instrumentalists, the talented pair have guitar, piano and fiddle covered. Their unique voices are perfect compliments of one another having spent years in classical voice lessons.

The pair released their first studio album in 2018 and are releasing singles in 2021 with a full album in the summer of 2021. Always experimenting with their sound Ava + Lily classify their sound as pop/country/electronic.

Georgetown Plein Air
Aug 7 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Presented in partnership with Art Across Our Island, Kings Playhouse invites you to have a grand day out painting at Georgetown Plein Air.

What is Plein Air?
‘Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.” ‘
