Hard to imagine throwing a party without PEI's Tim Chaisson.  Truthfully it seems like a blink ago that our paths first crossed at the 2011 ECMA's in Charlottetown.

And ever since that first interview Mr. Chaisson has been providing us with stellar story after stellar story.  Be it his own solo career, his amazing songwriting and most recently his JUNO Award winning Canadian trio (along with bandmates cousin Koady Chaisson and Jake Charron) The East Pointers - you can always count on his tremendous talents and nonstop creativity to deliver incredible content.  SEA AND BE SCENE has been so lucky over the years - where you would imagine a man like that with a non-stop career on the go would have a second to spare - Tim has always made time for a chat or an on line interview and for his attention we'll always be grateful.

Hey and speaking of non-stop - HUGE props to Tim and his team for their big plans for this year's ROLLO BAY FIDDLE FESTIVAL!!!

For over 40 years - every year during the 3rd weekend of July - they've welcomed world class performers and fans from all over to enjoy Prince Edward Island’s tremendous tradition of music. Now clearly this year made hosting the in person party impossible so this year their taking the entire celebration OnLine for a “Live-Streamed 24 Hour Jam”. Oh it's sure to be a nonstop fiddling fantastic.  Get your tickets to the 44th Annual Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival here.

Oh and one more example of how supremely special this fella is...when the COVID crisis struck he and his East Pointer pals Koady and Jake enlisted some truly talented friends to join them for what they called - ANNEdemic - a nightly chapter reading of "Anne of Green Gables" all in support of the Unison Benevolent Fund which supports musicians in crisis.  And their guest was off the chart including everyone from fellow Prince Edward Islanders Jonathan Torrens and Catherine Maclellan to NL’s awesome THE ONCE even Our ANNE - Meagan Follows joined in the fun! It was fantastic.  Here's the event page so you can see all the ANNEdemic awesomeness for yourself!

As you'll note from all the links below - Tim Chaisson has been a really HUGE part of our SEA AND BE SCENE story throughout the past decade and we're over the moon he's joined us to celebrate - a very HAPPY 10th indeed!!!

Thank you for this Celebrity Salute Mr.Chaisson - you're very knees of the bee! xosabs
