The Compass - - OR­THTE -

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
