The Trout River Environmental Committee (TREC) will hold a Celtic music fundraiser concert this evening at Green Island Getaways (1132, Route 254, North Granville) in its beautifully restored barn.

The concert, which runs 7:30-9:30 p.m., will feature Cynthia MacLeod as well as TREC director Colin Jeffrey (fiddle), performing with Irish musician Cian O’Morain (guitar/whistles) and Mary MacGillivray (vocals/bodhran).

Also on stage will be piper Mark Douglas and the Irish duo Cosan.

O’Morain and MacGillivray are becoming well known for performing authentic Irish music, songs and stories across P.E.I., and Jeffrey is often seen at the Old Triangle and in the Ireland Meets Scotland show. MacLeod is well known for her high-energy P.E.I. fiddle style while Douglas and Cosan are frequently seen at pub sessions and Celtic concerts across the island.

All proceeds will go towards the Trout River Committee’s 2018 river restoration work.

Tickets will be available at the door for $12.50 (adults) and $8 (under 14 years) with beverages and desert offered for purchase during the intermission.

For inquiries about the concert, call Jeffrey at 902-213-9340.
