Dino Dunsford will be hosting a ceilidh on Sunday, Dec, 16 starting at 1:30 p.m., at the Seniors Active Living Centre in the Bell Aliant Centre at UPEI.
Admission is $10 at the door, which opens at 12:30 p.m.
He will be joined by a group known as Friends, as well as Dr. Alf Morais, Judy Lowe and Brian Knox.
Friends originally came together to perform at nursing homes to bring enjoyment to the residents in song and humour. The group has branched out and is now entertaining at churches and ceilidhs all over the Island. The group’s members are Mary Hughes Power, vocals and djembe, Ann MacDougald, vocals, and Ann Morais, vocals and guitar. Hughes Power will also have the audience laughing with her great jokes.
A special treat for the afternoon will be a first-time appearance at this ceilidh by Morais, who will be singing some of his favourite songs.
Dunsford, a three-time award-winner has been entertaining audiences for over five decades in many genres of music. He began his career as a rock ’n’ roll singer with Dino and the Satins in the 1960s and has continued with various groups up to today. He has been involved in country, Irish/traditional and, most recently, gospel. He will be performing some of his favourite Christmas songs such as “Mary Did You Know”, “Silent Night” and “O Holy Night”.
There is plenty of free parking close by. Tickets are available at the door right up until showtime. A light lunch will be served. This is a fundraiser for the centre.
