Young per­form­ers to take the stage at Brack­ley Beach Com­mu­nity Cen­tre

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

A young group of mu­si­cians from North Van­cou­ver, B.C., will be the spe­cial guests at tonight’s Dunes n’ Tunes Ceilidh at the Brack­ley Beach Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

P.E.I. pi­ano player Johnny Ross hosts the ceilidh, which is held on Tues­days at 7:30 p.m. dur­ing sum­mer.

The North Shore Celtic Ensem­ble (NSCE) of­fers an en­gag­ing sound that blends Celtic, French-Cana­dian and old-time tunes with a youth­ful, con­tem­po­rary twist — the per­fect com­ple­ment to the ceilidh. The NSCE has ap­peared at the Aberdeen In­ter­na­tional Youth Fes­ti­val, the Seat­tle North­west Folk­life Fes­ti­val, the Drum­mondville’s Mon­dial des Cul­tures, the Fes­ti­val du Bois and nu­mer­ous oth­ers.

With the NSCE per­form­ing in the sec­ond half of the con­cert, the main Dunes n’ Tunes band will be play­ing the first half of the evening. This group in­cludes Jor­dan Le­Clair (vo­cals), Peggy Clin­ton (vo­cals), Nathan Con­don ( fid­dle) and Rachel Dun­can (step dance).

The group is noted for en­er­getic per­for­mances that show­case tra­di­tional East Coast mu­sic and dance, with strong vo­cal har­monies, rous­ing pi­ano reels, lively fid­dling, and a good dose of hu­mour.

The ceilidh opened its sec­ond sea­son on June 30 to an en­thu­si­as­tic crowd, re­ceiv­ing two stand­ing ova­tions and an encore.

Ad­mis­sion is at the door. For more in­for­ma­tion on the NSCE, visit www.nsce.ca. For more in­for­ma­tion on Dunes n’ Tunes, call 902-659-2137.
