CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Spring has finally arrived on P.E.I., along with a busy music season which will be celebrated at the Marvelous May Music Show happening Friday, May 25.
Four of the Island's popular musical acts come together at St. Paul's Anglican Church in downtown Charlottetown beginning at 7:30 p.m. The church is located at 101 Prince St., corner of Prince and Grafton in downtown Charlottetown. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available by calling Sheila MacKenzie at 902-330-3334 - please leave a message - or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission can also be paid at the door, subject to availability. All names of advanced ticket holders will be put into a special prize draw.
Two of the acts have been around for several years now and have been busy making names for themselves. Treble with Girls and Tip-Er-Back (Clive Currie, Allan Betts, Wade Murray_, recently shared the stage at Treble's winter concert series in Stratford and had a blast. The audience loved the combination, and both bands agreed they couldn't wait to work together again.
Singer and multi-instrumentalist Keelin Wedge and fellow Fiddlers' Sons bandmate, fiddler Courtney Hogan-Chandler, will be performing together in a dynamic duo act. Between the two musicians, they will offer up some of the finest fiddle tunes, songs and guitar-picking on the Island.
Rounding out the program, after a 10-year hiatus, the popular bluegrass group Bluestreak will be on hand for a reunion performance. Together, Larry Campbell, Andy Paynter, Roger Wightman and David Blue have countless Music P.E.I. and ECMA nominations and awards to their credit as well as two albums.
