Katie McGarry – At Home Here in PEI

Occupation: Singer-songwriter

Place of Birth: Belfast, PEI

Currently Resides: Charlottetown, PEI

Where’s your favourite place in PEI to grab a coffee?

That’s easy- Timothy’s! It’s delicious and I’m always bound to run into a friend or someone I know. They have shows there on Sunday evenings sometimes too, featuring great local and CFA (Come From Away) acts!

Where’s your favourite place in PEI to grab a pint?

Hunter’s Ale House is always a good place to stop in and have a barb (aka a beer!). Gahan House is another good one, and they brew their own! Island Red is my favorite Gahan brew.

Where’s your place to shop in PEI?

I don’t shop a whole lot but I would say I do the majority of my shopping at Long & McQuade, the music store. Even if I’m just window shopping I could spend hours there!

Where in PEI would we stand to see your favourite view?

Rocky Point has a beautiful view. I’m a sucker for pretty much any water view though, especially in the evenings when the sun is going down.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit PEI:

1. Check out pretty much any local pub or bar in town and you’re sure to find a great local act, especially in the summer!

2. I’m an avid walker and I love woodsy trails so one of my favorite spots to hike is in Strathgartney. It’s a beautiful trail along a river and there never seems to be anyone around so it’s very peaceful.

3. The Rossignol winery in Little Sands, that is if you like wine! (But then again, who doesn’t?)

What makes PEI such a special place on earth for you?

It’s where I was born and where I grew up. There’s a different pace here on PEI and I know that no matter how far away I am, I’ll always have a beautiful, quiet place to call home.
