Robert Pendergast was cut from the Island clay in the 1970s, born into a family filled with storytelling, music, and with a healthy love of food. Growing up in Saint Louis, in Prince County, he was deep-rooted in the cultural and musical traditions of Prince Edward Island.
One of six children, Robert learned early on the charms of the kitchen and the importance of breaking bread with others. His mixed Irish and Acadian heritage also meant he was exposed to a variety of cooking styles from an early age. According to Robert, Islanders have a unique relationship with food that sets it apart.
Michael Pendergast, brother of Robert, a bilingual entertainer and songwriter from Prince Edward Island, Canada. He began his career over 25 years ago but feels like he’s just getting warmed up.
From crowds of 6 to 600, Mike loves connecting with audiences and sharing his love for traditional and contemporary Maritime music.
Shane Pendergast, son of Michael, is a folksinger from Tracadie Cross, Prince EdwardIsland. He learned to play by ear at an early age, immersed in a culture of family kitchen parties; by age 13 he was performing professionally on stage. Shane’s connection to Maritime folk music dates back to the efforts of his great-grandparents, preservers of folklore in P.E.I.
Shane is carrying the torch forward with his own songs, inspired by rural life and Maritime history. At age 22, Shane is known as an “old-school troubadour,” performing upwards of 200 gigs a year. In 2020 he released his debut album, “Place to the Name.” One year later,on March 2021, he released his second album, “Second Wind.”
