STOMPIN’ TOM TRIBUTE FEATURING CHAD MATTHEWS

This tribute to Canadian icon, the late Stompin’ Tom Connors pays homage to one of Canada’s most beloved folk heroes.

Headlining the show is Island singer/actor Chad Matthews, who has been playing at sold-out gospel shows across PEI and taking it to other parts of the Maritimes. He has portrayed the great Stompin’ Tom Connors at Skinners Pond for three years with great reviews, being the only tribute act in all of Canada. Chad also shared his acting talent by grabbing a role in a feature film, “Still the Water,” now available worldwide. The National Film Board of Canada just recently released a documentary on his life. This summer, he is also heading to Ottawa to the first-ever Epic Canadian Junior Hockey Expo for a 2-day Stompin’ Tom Tribute.

Chad’s special guests for the show are 18-year-old twins Ava & Lily Rashed from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, who are set to take up the torch in a long-time family music tradition. Their great grandfather was Country Hall of Famer Charlie Chamberlain from Don Messer and the Islanders, and th

eir father, David Rashed, the keyboardist for platinum-selling 80’s pop/rock band Haywire. The pair released their first studio album in 2018 and continue to release music. Ava & Lily are constantly experimenting with their sound, a mix of pop/ country/electronic.
