  1. I visited PEI back in 2003 and happened to meet Leon at Avonlea. I still have your Down by the Bay CD and always have enjoyed listening to it. I’d love to come back to PEI again and share some Island Blue with you

  2. We saw Mike and Leon at a ceilidh at the Sterling Women’s Institute at Stanley Bridge on PEI on October 4, 2016, and it was one of the most wonderful nights of music and fun in our lives. Our faces hurt from smiling! We purchased the “Songs from the Shanty” CD, and brought it home to share with our friends in lower Alabama. We stayed in New Glasgow Highlands RV park, and all the people we met there were wonderful!
    We are located near a community of Acadians and Creoles on Mobile Bay, and we need a lot more people like you, and more of the music like you create.
    We hope to return to PEI next summer and enjoy more of your unique culture. We loved PEI, but it was your music that makes us want to return.
    Best Regards,
    Richard and Marilyn

  3. Thanks for the music and the memories. Didn’t want to leave. The ceilidh at St Mark’s Hall Friday and at Stanley Bridge on Sat nite were the highlights of our visit to the Island.

  4. We were at St. Mark’s Ceilidh last night (Sept 8, 2016) and thoroughly enjoyed the concert. Wonderful evening.

  5. Hey Leon, we saw you several times at Avonlea Village but heard they have changed everything…too bad! But we are going to catch you on Canada day at North Rustico, coming from Ontario to enjoy PEI mussels and your great music!

  6. My brother gave me a copy of “Between the Jigs and the Reels” and I just love it. I love your original tunes – so melodic and Canadian. As a long -time harmonica player who loves to play jigs, reels hornpipes etc on harmonica and guitar together I am always on the hunt for new ones I like and have added Debbie’s Waltz, the Irish Jigs and Irish Polkas to my repertoire. Time to tackle some of those original songs.Thanks again for a great Canadian album ! 🙂

  7. Beautiful night tonight in Charlottetown. The place was rockin’.
    Interaction was fantastic. Can’t wait to hear the cd we bought.

  9. Hey Leon! We caught two shows while you were in Kemptville and Ottawa. Emjoyed the great music you, Remi and Billy played! Looking forward to your return next fall. Does Nick Gauthier play in Ottawa regularily? If so where can we find out where he plays?

  10. What a pleasant surprise and chance happening to catch your show while we were visiting Avonlea Village on our trip to PEI the other day. Thank you for telling us about the ceilidh in Stanley Bridge! We were a bit late, but caught the last half of your performance. Your music really captures the pride and joy Islanders have of their island and their roots. Thank you for sharing that with everyone. We definitely fell in love with PEI and hope to return again in the near future.

  12. Saw Mike and Remi at Avonlea Village Sept 2012. Just a small taste of your music and tales. Loved it! A beautiful taste of P.E.I. culture.
    Exactly what we were hoping for. Just wish we could stay for your show Thursday night, but our time here is over for now. Will definately catch a show next time around. Sounds like Great Fun!
    Thanks Boys for the music and the oyster shucking lesson.

  13. Leon and Guys…..Saw you and guys at Stanley Bridge Hall on July 17…it was WONDERFUL!!!!! One of the best, fun, most enjoyable music nights my wife and I have ever attended in US, Europe, etc. Would love to have you come to Northern Virginia, near DC, to play. Can we help make that happen? You said that you played once near Tyson’s Corner here…please do it again. Don and Pat Sodo

  14. AH Leon-so much enjoyed your show at Stanley Bridge. The highlight of our PEI vacation. Will be sending you a CD of truly Hawaiian music soon. Mahalo Nui Loa for a wonderful evening of song and laughter.

  15. I’ve been listening to your music since summer of 2006. Love your songs and new album. Looking forwarding to hearing and seeing you next summer.

  16. What a blessing meeting you all at Avonlea village! I don’t think I will ever for get Mike making me dance that last day! If we never meet again, please continue to share you music with as many as possible… and yes they say that Jesus is the only one who can walk on the water, because it is the Truth!

  17. I just LOVE your music! Keep up the great job! I wish we had this type of music in Ontario.

  20. Hello from Reaboro Ontario!!! Are you still playing on the pier in summer? Its time i had a new record from you 🙂

  21. Great website, Leon! I’m so excited that you are recording some new music. It’s been a long winter here in Maine and listening to your music really helps brighten my days. See you in June!

    1. You took the words right out of my mouth Susan…glad I’m not the only one who puts on these Albums and passes away the winter while dreaming of summer days on PEI.

  22. Dear Leon,
    Just a note to let you know that your CD, “Between the Jigs and the Reels” has been a blessing to our family. You are loved by the Peeler family in New Cumberland, WV!
