The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT / COMMUNITY -

Fol­low­ing two suc­cess­ful sold­out shows for the June 28 launch of the 2015 Sun­day Night Hoe­down Con­cert Se­ries, hosts Peggy Clin­ton and Johnny Ross welcome two mu­si­cians as guests for their next con­cert on July 12, 7:30 p.m., at Souris Live’s Cen­tre Stage, 14 He­brew Ave., Souris.

Joe Hynes, orig­i­nally from Co­droy Val­ley, N.L., lived and worked in Cape Bre­ton for many years and now lives in Mon­tague with his wife Marie (who is an Is­lan­der). He has per­formed through­out At­lantic Canada and played with many mu­si­cians over the years, in­clud­ing Dick Nolan, Ed­die Cof­fey and Bruce Guthro. His mu­si­cal reper­toire and in­flu­ences are di­verse, span­ning coun­try mu­sic (es­pe­cially Merle Hag­gard), 1950s/’60s rock ‘n’ roll, and tra­di­tional New­found­land mu­sic.

Keelin Wedge, orig­i­nally from St. Louis P.E.I., now lives in Summerside. A multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist, she plays the fid­dle, guitar, man­dolin, drums and bass along with sings and step dances. She per­forms mostly tra­di­tional mu­sic, coun­try and some rock but she is open to all kinds of styles.

“Com­bine the tal­ents of these two guests with the high energy and in­cred­i­ble tal­ent of Peggy Clin­ton and Johnny Ross and you have the recipe for an amaz­ing show,” says a re­lease.

Tick­ets ($12) are avail­able at www.souris­liveinc.com; Ever­green Café, 95 Main St., Souris or call 902-687-1521.
