the 22 songs from his multimedia hit production, Searching For Abegweit,
which ran for 173 shows, also won him an ECMA. He was named

PEI. His songs have been covered by numerous artists including Jimmy
Buffett, The Rankins, and Measha Brueggergosman and have appeared in
feature films and TV shows. One of his albums, When We Get There, even

Payette (now the Governor General of Canada) for the crew to enjoy and
orbited the planet 248 times. How about that for high rotation!
