Trailside Music Hall
The Trailside was purchased by current owners Meghann & Pat in 2011, the Trailside is an intimate gathering place where musicians feel at home, and where the audience are left awestruck.
It all came together the night Pat took his girlfriend at the time to see Dave Gunning's performance in Spring 2010 at what was then called Trailside Inn, Café & Adventures in Mount Stewart PEI. His date, an Islander by choice was extremely interested in seeing the place, a recently listed business for sale.
Pat & Meghann, long time music lovers, were blown away with the intimacy and the magic of the whole experience. ''An extremely warm atmosphere, and incredible music tucked away in the country'', ... they remember clinging to every note Gunning played that night, along with the rest of the fifty + guests.
Pat has played and watched live performances all over the land, near and far. From Baba’s Lounge, to the Horseshoe Tavern, to the Paradiso in Amsterdam, Pat understands what it takes to please both the audience and the musician.
A mere six months later the date became a marriage and their dreams became reality as they signed on together as owners. Pat & Meghann continued to build the Trailside name & reputation in Mount Stewart until 2020 when they expanded the business to Charlottetown to a larger venue space.
Their vision for the future of the Trailside is the same magical equation that they experienced that first night, an intimate gathering place where musicians feel at home, and where the audience are left awestruck.
