special events


Isle of Skye Productions takes an active role in the community to co ordinate as well as sponsor special events. The special events area of the Isle of Skye Productions portfolio began when singer/songwriter Robin Moir was asked to co ordinate talent for CBC television’s CHEO telethon and subsequently the Heart Institute Telethon in the early 1990’s. Through her many music industry contacts Robin was able to help create television specials with tremendous Canadian talent on board; talent like Alanis, Wayne Rostad, The Five Man Electrical Band, Rich Little and many more. 

For the past ten years Robin has worked with a committed team along with host Wayne Rostad to put together the magical pre Christmas outdoor street concert in Almonte, Ontario called Light Up The Night. Traditionally held on the first Friday in December, Light UpThe Night draws more than 7000 people from all across the Ottawa Valley to the main street of Almonte to ring in the Christmas season.

Another Christmas event that takes to the airwaves, the first Saturday in December, to raises money for the Christmas Exchange, is CFRA radio’s Christmas Cheer Broadcast. Robin Moir and Joe Turner have been part of this event for the past 20 years, singing and playing Christmas songs while a host of celebrity guests, musicians and singers join forces with CFRA to raise money for this worthwhile charity. The following Friday CFRA in association with The Westin Hotel, hosts the Christmas Cheer Breakfast and Robin works with them to put together the wonderful breakfast for all the movers and shakers around town. Celebrities dish out the breakfast and talent takes to the stage to keep everyone entertained!
