SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT: The Island Songs & Stories of Lennie Gallant returns to Harbourfront Theatre for 8 performances this summer 2019.
Hailed as a runaway theatrical hit with a solid track record of over 120 full house performances, SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT is a musical love letter to Prince Edward Island that stars the artist himself and presents his original folk, roots and rock music, alongside comedic stories, Island legends, and poignant tales in a multimedia format that utilizes film, and hundreds of paintings from well-known PEI visual artist and sibling, Karen Gallant. Sharing the stage with Gallant are nephews Jonathan Gallant on vocals and percussion and Jeremy on piano, along with fiddler Sean Kemp, and popular Acadian singer and multi-instrumentalist Patricia Richard.
SEARCHING FOR ABEGWEIT: The Island Songs & Stories of Lennie Gallant features original music from the span of Lennie Gallant’s extensive career, along with a number of new compositions written specifically for the show.
Gallant last performed his hit production at Harbourfront Theatre in the summer of 2017, before taking it on the road and touring it throughout the Maritime provinces in the fall 2017.
