The fourth annual QEH Winter Fundraising Concert Series, hosted by Treble with Girls and presented by Cardigan Bearing and Steel and Cardigan Feed Services, welcomes P.E.I. bluegrass favourites Bluestreak to the stage at the Assumption Parish Centre on Sunday, Dec. 16, beginning at 2 p.m.

Comprised of Roger Wightman, Andy Paynter, David Blue and Larry Campbell, Bluestreak is one of the Island's most well-known bluegrass acts. The band reunited last year after the death of former band member Nathan Condon. From 2004 to 2008, the band was busy on the festival circuit, recorded two CDs and picked up numerous Music P.E.I. and ECMA nominations and awards. After a 10-year hiatus, the band has returned to the stage for select performances.

The QEH Winter Fundraising Concert Series runs every second Sunday at 2 p.m. until April 28, with the exception of December with only one performance. The family-friendly event features Island music, door prizes, a 50/50 draw and a homemade lunch served at intermission.

Admission is $10 for adults, children 12 and under are $5 and preschoolers are free. The Assumption Parish Centre is located at 145 Stratford Rd., in the big blue church. For a complete listing of show dates and the guest lineup, visit www.facebook.com/QEHTrebleconcerts.
