Fiddlers’ Sons to play at St. James Church

EMERALD JUNCTION, P.E.I. —

Courtney Hogan will end her Emerald Ceilidh kitchen parties for the season on Friday, Sept. 13, at 7:30 p.m., as she welcomes back the popular P.E.I band, Fiddlers’ Sons.

This week’s show is in the historic St. James Church in Summerfield.

Since 1997, the list of Fiddlers’ Sons accomplishments has grown to rival that of any traditional music group in the Maritimes. The band has been awarded numerous Music P.E.I. awards.

Fiddlers’ Sons was originally the idea of lead singer Eddy Quinn of Cardigan, who performed regularly in a country/rock band. But now with a strong interest in traditional music the band’s playlist now reflects the Scottish and Irish roots of the Island and includes many original songs written by the band members. 

The doors open at 6:30 p.m.
