‘Delighted to have SKY Family’
Getting over the hump
To help get the fundraising efforts over the hump, Prince Edward Island’s celtic-gospel quintet the SKY Family will be in the area next week.
A father-children group, the family features the dad, Tom Sky playing guitar, fiddle and piano, Seth on bass, Joel on lead fiddle, saxophone and flute, Gabe as lead dancer, guitarist and drummer, and daughter Miriam on piano. Each member does vocals.
The group is playing at the Salvation Army Citadel in Green’s Harbour Saturday, Aug. 18 with proceeds going towards the playground at Acreman Elementary. The SKY Family will also be at St. George’s Heritage Church in Brigus, Monday, Aug. 20 and the Sheila NaGeira The- atre in Carbonear, Tuesday, Aug. in aid of the Helping Hand, during their visit to the Trinity-Conception region.
“The SKY Family is always looking for ways to help a community and bring a smile wherever they go,” said Patty Lueken, representative for the SKY Family through email.
Reid said she realizes that small churches in small communities have their own needs and the group “greatly appreciates the church’s willingness to host the concert in aid of our playground.”
“We are delighted to have the SKY Family from PEI come here to help us out,” she said.
Tickets for the show are $15 and are available at local outlets in the Green’s Harbour-Whiteway area
