Close to the Ground se­ries be­gins Sea­son 12 tonight

Eddy Quinn launches book tonight

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES/ENTERTAINMENT -

Sum­mer has fi­nally ar­rived in Prince Ed­ward Is­land and with it the re­turn of the pop­u­lar Close to the Ground con­cert se­ries hosted by Fid­dlers’ Sons with Keelin Wedge on fid­dle.

For 12 years, Eddy Quinn and the band have filled the Kaylee Hall in Pooles Cor­ner ev­ery Thurs­day night at 8 p.m. and this sea­son prom­ises to be no dif­fer­ent.

On Thurs­day, July 2 Quinn is ex­cited to be launch­ing his first book, “Is­land Char­ac­ters” at the very first con­cert of the sum­mer.

His love of sto­ries and af­fec­tion for the peo­ple he en­coun­ters is ev­i­dent in this literary de­but — a col­lec­tion of 33 short sto­ries each aug­mented by an orig­i­nal song.

He is also pleased to in­tro­duce fid­dler, multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist and singer Keelin Wedge who will be ac­com­pa­ny­ing Fid­dlers’ Sons each week. There will also be a very spe­cial, sur­prise guest ap­pear­ing for open­ing night as well.

Close to the Ground runs ev­ery Thurs­day at 8pm from July 2nd un­til Sept. 24. The Kaylee Hall is lo­cated at the in­ter­sec­tion of routes 3 and 4 in Pooles Cor­ner, just out­side of Mon­tague with ad­mis­sion by cash only at the door.

Copies of Quinn’s book along with mu­si­cal record­ings will be avail­able for sale, along with can­teen ser­vice avail­able and a 50/50 draw.

Eddy Quinn will be launch­ing his first book ti­tled “Is­land Char­ac­ters” to­day at the Kaylee Hall in Pooles Cor­ner at the first Close to the Ground con­cert of the sea­son at 8 p.m.
