(CHARLOTTETOWN, PE) - Troubadour Dylan Menzie has something special planned for his first hometown concert in over a year. The nationally-celebrated singer-songwriter and his band will take the iconic stage at Charlottetown’s The Mack on Dec. 8th, 2017 for “DYLAN MENZIE OF CHRISTMAS YET TO COME”, a special night of original and holiday music featuring special guests.
Tickets are currently on sale for the show, with early bird pricing available until Oct. 31st. A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will benefit the Upper Room Soup Kitchen in Charlottetown. Visit https://goo.gl/Ql33j2 to purchase tickets.
“It feels like far too long since we’ve performed for our friends and fans in Charlottetown, especially considering all that’s happened with us over the past year,” says Menzie. “That’s why we wanted to put together a really special evening for everyone, with some of our best and most talented friends joining us onstage for songs, stories, and some fun, old-fashioned holiday cheer.”
In addition to selections from his heralded releases Heather Avenue and Adolescent Nature – including the CBC Radio 2 chart-topping “Kenya” – Menzie and his band will showcase some new songs and a handful of holiday favourites. Fans can also expect some additional surprises during this intimate evening of music, stories, and more in one of PEI’s most iconic venues, all in support of an important cause.
“We were very excited to hear Dylan Menzie would be using his Christmas show to raise support for The Upper Room Hospitality Ministry,” says Tammy MacKinnon, the manager of the Upper Room Soup Kitchen. “There are always many Islanders who need to access our food bank and soup kitchen so we are very thankful and grateful for Dylan's decision to help us share the love with those who need it most.”
With a sprawling vocal range and compelling approach to composition, Menzie made an indelible mark in the talent-rich Atlantic Canadian music market with his debut EP, Heather Avenue, in 2013. In 2016, he was a finalist in CBC’s annual Searchlight competition on the back of his breakout single, “Kenya,” which then spent two weeks at Number 1 on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20 leading up to the release of his 2016 album Adolescent Nature.
