Charlottetown- Prince Edward Island

Walked by the Confederation Centre of the Arts and saw this live show ” Dear Rita” . We were so happy we got tickets 15 minutes before this began. This was an amazing show with fabulous music.

‘Dear Rita’ is a musical toast to Canadian icon and songwriter Rita MacNeil that celebrates the life, tenacity, and musical legacy of the late Singer.


WORKING MAN – This was an emotional song ..our Dad was a coal miner. Some neighbors died underground..sad memories of the past. Rita wrote this song to support Miners from Cape Breton.

WORKING MAN – Rita MacNeil


It’s a working man l am
And I’ve been down under ground
And I swear to God if l ever see the sun
Or for any length of time
I can hold it in my mind
I never again will go down under ground

At the age of sixty four
Oh, he’ll greet you at the door
And he’ll gently lead you by the arm
Through the dark recess of the mines
Oh, he’ll take you back in time
And he’ll tell you of the hardships that were had

God, I never again will go down under ground

Fabulous actors and musicians.
