It has been sixteen years since the tragic death of Prince Edward Island singer/songwriter Gene MacLellan. For the first time, his legacy is being celebrated in a concert by the musicians who were closest to Gene and his singular talent. 

Held at a heritage church in the centre of Charlottetown, performers include Lennie Gallant, Meaghan Blanchard,  Dennis Elsworth, Ron Hynes, Haunted Hearts, and Gene's daughter, Catherine MacLellan. Anne Murray, whose career soared after recording Gene's song Snowbird, narrates a poignant biography.
