Fiddler Courtney Hogan will be ending her Emerald Ceilidh kitchen parties in style this evening as she welcomes popular P.E.I. band Fiddlers’ Sons back to the stage.

This final night of music will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Emerald Community Centre. The pub opens at 5:30 p.m. for food.

“The local support, the visiting friends and beautiful venue have made the perfect setting for a Friday night kitchen party. Being able to play so close to home has allowed me to continue doing the show I love so much that I might not be able to do otherwise.” says Hogan, referring to her busy schedule as a full-time veterinarian at the Summerside Animal Hospital, the mainstay fiddler with the band Fiddlers’ Sons and a busy mom.

At the top of Hogan’s who’s who list at the show would be this week’s guests Fiddlers’ Sons which includes Eddy Quinn and John B. Webster. Few could argue that they have earned the right to take a place among the most well-known, accomplished and successful P.E.I. bands ever. Their rich blend of traditional and original music, storytelling and jokes, makes for an evening of toe-tapping music and laughter.

Keelin Wedge is the newest member of the band, although she’s certainly no stranger to the P.E.I. music scene. Hogan and Wedge have been working on a collaborative CD which is expected to be available early next month. Step dancer Kristyn Visser will also be showing off her fancy footwork at the finale.
