Atlantic Blue



Celebrated PEI born singer/songwriter, Tara MacLean, takes you on a journey into the past, telling the story of how music arrived and thrived on the East Coast of Canada.

Atlantic Blue is about the place and the people behind classic songs like Sonny’s Dream, Put Your Hand in the Hand, Fare Thee Well Love, Movin’ on, Working Man, and many more, who found a way to create beauty from the challenging experiences in their own lives.

The depth of this show comes from Tara's own relationship with each of these writers. To ensure historical accuracy, she worked with those living songwriters and the families/representatives of those who are no longer with us.

Using film for the biographies of these brilliant writers, and live music to illustrate their work, Tara’s epic voice transports the audience, locals and tourists alike, to a place of deeper understanding and connection with Atlantic Canada and our most treasured music. Atlantic Blue is a captivating experience that is sure to bring Atlantic Canadians together in celebration and solidarity for our way of life and the songs that helped the world fall in love with us.

The show is smart, funny, heart-wrenching and beautiful. As well, we are very proud to have a strong French and Indigenous component in the show. Its first two seasons earned rave reviews, this year it’s sure to be even better. Partnering with the creative team at the world famous Charlottetown Festival, this summer’s show will be taken to a new level.

Atlantic Blue is Tara MacLean’s overture to Canada’s East Coast and to the music that informed the songwriter she became. It’s also an ode to the ocean that brought her ancestors to the red shores of this beautiful island. It’s an inspiring and timeless thread that weaves through the ages.

Don’t miss this incredible show playing Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights at 7:30pm from August 2nd - September 27th, 2019 at The MacKenzie Theatre , 128 Great George Street, Charlottetown, PEI.

Tara's new album, Atlantic Blue - A celebration of East Coast Songwriters, is the accompanying soundtrack and is available on iTunes, and on CD and vinyl at the show. 


This is a first class night’s entertainment, it doesn’t matter what your musical tastes are, Tara’s beautiful voice will win you over, and the story telling of the other Atlantic Canadian song writers journey is inspirational. If there are no plans to take this show on the road, there should be!
