The ceilidh this evening in the Katherine Hughes Memorial Hall in the Irish Cultural Centre at 582 North River Rd. will feature the award-winning Island folk music group, Fiddler’s Sons, featuring Eddy Quinn, John B. Webster and Courtney Hogan-Chandler.  

There will be a 50/50 draw during the evening at the air-conditioned hall. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. Admission is at the door. For information, call 902-213-3924.  

In 2017, the band marked the anniversary of 20 years in the music business with the release of a compilation album of their most requested songs. Fiddlers' Sons: The Best of Twenty Years contains 22 selections written and performed by the band members that explore Island life and its people. For 20 of their 22 years together, Fiddlers' Sons have been playing their brand of grassroots music to packed houses at The Benevolent Irish Society.    

Quinn, who sings lead vocals, well as plays guitar and bodhran, has released two solo albums and has received four Music P.E.I. Awards. 

Webster, the group’s lead guitarist and backup vocalist, grew up on the Station Road in Cardigan and was interested in music from an early age. He has done quite a lot of writing on the five CD’s Fiddlers' Sons have released over the years.  

Besides performing and recording with the group, Hogan-Chandler had released two CDs of her own. She also recently released a collaboration album with Keelin Wedge titled Dark and Amber Rosin.

The Irish Hall is observing the P.E.I. Health Authority gathering guidelines of 50 people inside the hall due to COVID-19 restrictions.
