You’re Invited to an Evening of Music and Poetry

November 27, 2017

The Gallery presents Dominic Langlois and Andy Creeggan

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) -On November 30 at 7:30 p.m. Tapage et Symphonie (Racket and Symphony) featuring poet Dominic Langlois and musician Andrew Creeggan will be performing in the Gallery as part of this year's Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre program.

Langlois, who hails from Quebec, spent many years on Prince Edward Island before moving to Moncton, N.B. He is deeply involved in the cultural and musical scene in both provinces. Langlois also has published two books of poetry at Éditions Perce-Neige: Mener du train (2010) and La rue en eaux troubles (2012), and a novel, Le trésor de Memramcook.

Creeggan is a founding member of Barenaked Ladies along with his brother Jim. The pair also released four albums as The Brothers Creeggaan. After being accepted into the Faculty of Music at McGill University, Creeggan went on to pursue instrumental music, focusing on theory and composition, and now lives in Moncton, N.B. Creeggan's three solo works: Andiwork, Andiwork II, and Andiwork III, are largely instrumental pieces that consist of more contemporary classical, with touches of jazz and rock.

The first part of the evening will consist of a poetry reading accompanied by original piano compositions by Creeggan and will be followed by a solo performance by Creeggan.

Special thanks are extended to the Government of Canada for their support of Confederation Centre; as well to Sobeys, the title sponsor for LIVE @ The Centre. Media sponsors are The Guardian, Hot 105.5, and Ocean 100.
