Saskatchewan celebrated as part of Charlottetown Conference anniversary

REGINA - Sheepdogs could be seen roaming the red soil of Prince Edward Island this week.

The province is hosting a showcase of Saskatchewan talent that includes a show by rock band "The Sheepdogs," indie pop group "Rah Rah" and country singer Blake Berglund.

The Regina Symphony Orchestra chamber players are also to perform.

Saskatchewan is being feted as part of the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference, the meeting in 1864 that played an integral role in Confederation.

It's one of seven weeks dedicated to celebrating the provinces involved in the conference.

Episodes of the former CBC comedy series "Corner Gas" about life in small-town Saskatchewan are also on tap.

Penny Walsh-McGuire, executive director of the celebrations, says P.E.I. loves Saskatchewan. Residents are particularly looking forward to seeing "The Sheepdogs" and their rocking-out and beard-growing skills.

"It is amazing. Everyone is so excited about that," Walsh-McGuire said.
