Those who attended the Hickman Automotive Group's 17th Annual Classic Car Show last July can confirm that the show was a huge success! We want to make this year's show even bigger, so again, Hickman Chevrolet Cadillac will team up with Hickman Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Fiat and also the newest product line of the Hickman Automotive Group, Hickman Nissan, to present the 18th Annual Hickman Classic Car Show!

Since Hickman Chrysler joined a few years ago, the show was separated between the Chrysler dealership at 20 Peet Street and the Chevrolet dealership at 85 Kenmount Rd. This year the Car Show will be sharing 1 lot at Hickman Chevrolet Cadillac, 85 Kenmount Rd with the Hickman Chrysler parking lot being utilized for spectator parking and Car Show participant overflow so come early for the best parking! All the participants and spectators alike can enjoy the show at one convenient location with entertainment by the Tequila Rockingbirds!

This year's show is scheduled for Saturday, July 6th from 10am to 4pm (rain date, Sunday, July 7th) so mark your calendars and get your registration in early to assist us in planning for this big event. Complete and submit the registration form online for your GM, Chrysler or Nissan/Datsun by clicking here or call us at 726-6990 / 1-866-990-2275 to register your vehicle.

We are asking participants and spectators to please bring a non-perishable food item to help support the Community Food Sharing Association. As well, proceeds from refreshments and food sold at the show will go to help the fine work of the children's safety charity - Child Find.

We hope to see you there!

Rock Barra Artist Retreat

Rock Barra Retreat is a twenty acre paradise on a pristine beach on P.E.I.'s north shore. My buddy the late Sam Sniderman granted me a fifty year lease on the property to create an oasis for artists.I am the artistic director at the retreat and spend as much time as I can there in the summer. A few years back Daniel Day-Lewis and his wife Rebecca Miller used the land for a feature film and left behind a structure where we host summer programming.
This summer I will be hosting a concert series every Sunday night featuring some of the Island's finest songwriters.We also will present a series of art workshops. For a full program list go to

My singing camp this year runs from Friday August 2nd at 7:00 until noon on Sunday August 4th. We always have a great time and many people come back every year. The camp is open to all comers, experienced singers and shy beginners. This year I'll be combining basic vocal technique with The Yoga of Sound. The Yoga of Sound introduces the voice as a healing modality, using chants, light exercises, labyrinth walks and improvisation to bring peace and calm to the mind and body. Expect to leave the workshop having a better understanding of the power of the voice and feeling relaxed and inspired after a weekend of singing, laughing, campfires and swimming. The cost for the entire weekend is $165.
