Now the story of a pandemic that closed everything, and the one trivia host who had no choice but to keep it all together. It’s Small Print’s Online Trivia with Sam – trivia themes rotate each week. This is a Pay-What-You-Can event, and the contribution link/tip jar is located on our website. We know that this isn’t an easy time for so many of us, so contributions are not mandatory (we are happy to have you either way!), but are appreciated from those who are in the position to do so. A suggested contribution is $2/per person.

Tiny Island Concert Series – Music PEI & Island Artists
WHEN: Every Thursday & Sunday Night at 8pm (ADT)
WHERE: Music PEI Facebook Page
The Tiny Island Concert series is a creation of Music PEI’s in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has been taking its toll on our island’s music industry. The goal of the project would be to offset some of our artist’s lost revenue by paying them to produce Facebook Live videos for the Music PEI Facebook page from the comfort of their own homes. Artists will either fall into the “Emerging” category or the “Established” category and will be asked to play a show for 20 or 40 minutes respectively. This series is designed and intended to help those artists in need who have had their gigs and revenue cancelled for the foreseeable future.
The concerts are free to watch, while donations are now being accepted to the Music PEI Crisis Relief Fund for PEI music industry professionals and artists. Those funds will be distributed to PEI artists not performing and industry professionals in need. Link to donate. This initiative is supported by The Province of PEI & ACOA. More Information
