Don Messer and His Islanders.

His CBC Television series Don Messer’s Jubilee (1959–69) featured Messer's down-east fiddle style and the "old-time" music of Don Messer and His Islanders, and was one of the most popular and enduring Canadian television programs of the 1960s. Messer was known as a shy fiddler, who preferred to have the other members of the band take. Don Messer and His Islanders. While in Charlottetown, Messer formed the "Islanders" and by 1944 the group was airing a show nationally on CBC radio. The show established itself as the most popular on Canadian radio during the 1940s-1960s and Don Messer and The Islanders began to tour outside of the Maritimes.

Read about Don Messer, view lists for his personal papers and his rich library of recordings and sheet music. Listen to his theme song, watch clips of the TV program, and tour a Virtual Exhibit presenting 'Don Messer and His Islanders' as Canadians remember them best. Across the country, tens of thousands sat by their radios three times a week, 1939-58, listening to 'Don Messer and His Islanders' broadcast from Charlottetown, PEI on CBC Radio. With the advent of television, Messer moved seamlessly across to the new medium, bringing his audience with him. Thousands more watched 'Don Messer's Jubilee' weekly, 1956-69, produced by CBC Television in Halifax, NS. When the program was cancelled, there was a national uproar; thirty-five years later, some people miss it still.
