Solo performers and groups will entertain audience on July 14

MONT-CARMEL, P.E.I. —

The Coopérative de développement culturel et patrimonial de Mont-Carmel (CDCPMC) has announced the lineup of artists who will be performing at the Mont-Carmel Parish Hall on Sunday, July 14. 

The second of eight shows, sponsored by Atlantic Lottery, will feature Josiane Comeau from New Brunswick, pianist Julien Robichaud, power duo Peggy Clinton and Johnny Ross and Fiddlerlouise & Co. (Louise Arsenault, Jonathan Arsenault and Helen Bergeron). There will also be step-dancing by Crystalle Richard.

The concerts, which run every Sunday until Aug. 25, start at 7 p.m. The doors of the Mont-Carmel Parish Hall (5786 Route 11, Mont-Carmel) open at 6:15 p.m. During the evening, spectators will be able to buy 50/50 tickets, and the canteen will be open.

Comeau is an 18-year-old singer from Dieppe, N.B. She has been participated in numerous singing competitions in both New Brunswick and Quebec. At the age of 14, Comeau was selected to participate in “The Voice Kids” in France, which was an incredible experience for her.

Clinton has been singing since she was five years old and playing the guitar since she was 12. In 2015, her self-titled CD received three Music P.E.I. award nominations. She also took home the Bell Aliant Weekend Warrior Award. Her album also finished in the 23rd position in Canada for the CBC Searchlight Contest in 2015.  

Ross took an interest in the piano at an early age. He has shared the stage with a wide range of artists, including his siblings, during the Ross Family Ceilidh in Stanley Bridge. While his repertoire spans multiple genres, Ross is most at home playing country roots music alongside Clinton.

Robichaud, son of artists Patricia Richard and Mario Robichaud, is returning to the stage in Mont-Carmel within the programming of this annual summer concert series.  This 16-year-old pianist performs a variety of styles, including ragtime, contemporary and jazz.

Barachois alumni Louise Arsenault and Helen Bergeron are known for their vibrant, energetic and unique performance style inspired by Acadian kitchen parties. Add in Jonathan Arsenault, Louise’s son, representing the next generation and together, they take audiences on a wild ride.
