REVIEW: Port Cities at Summerside, PEI’s College of Piping

On Friday, November 5th, the College of Piping’s Celtic Performing Arts Centre in Summerside, PEI played host to award-winning Nova Scotia trio, Port Cities, consisting of Breagh MacKinnon, Carleton Stone and Dylan Guthro.

The group played an acoustic set of songs from their latest release, including “Astronaut,” “Sound of Your Voice” and their hit single, “Back to the Bottom.” The group also had some creative takes on covers such as “All That She Wants”, originally performed by Ace of Base and “Wheels,” a song written by renowned singer-songwriter and fellow Cape Breton native, Gordie Sampson.** In addition to these great songs, the group also performed an acoustic version of their latest single, “Montreal.”

Throughout the night, no matter the song they performed  MacKinnon, Stone and Guthro showcased their numerous incredible talents. On the one hand, they’re all incredibly talented players. On the other hand, their vocals together are pure magic. You would swear they were either family, or have been singing together for a long period of time because their harmony vocals together would leave you with chills.

Their show is definitely not one to miss.  Luckily for fans in Atlantic Canada, you still have some chances to check them out before the year is out. They’ll be performing the follow Atlantic Canadian Dates:
