Ceilidh features Ward MacDonald and friends at Irish Cultural Centre
The Ceilidh at the Irish Hall this evening features fiddler Ward MacDonald and friends.
MacDonald, who grew up in the Scottish fiddling tradition of P.E.I., is a fourth generation fiddler, a great performer and a fine composer. Featured at festivals and concerts across Atlantic Canada and the U.S., he also teaches fiddle and is founder of the P.E.I. Fiddle Camp, which takes place this weekend.
Joining him on stage is Cape Breton fiddler Chrissy Crowley. The winner of the 2013 Folk Music Award for solo instrumental recording, she was nominated for a 2014 ECMA for traditional instrumental recording of the year.
Also on the Island to participate in the fiddle Camp is Will Woodson from Maine. He is a recent graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with a masters degree in Scottish music and will be featured on Scottish small pipes.
Rounding out the list of performers is guitarist Zakk Cormier who recently accompanied legendary Irish piper Paddy Keenan at a sold-out concert at the Pourhouse in Charlottetown.
Come and enjoy some of the best in Irish, Scottish and Maritime traditional. The evening also features a 50/50 draw and a light lunch during intermission.
The ceilidh takes places at the air-conditioned Irish Cultural Centre, 582 North River Rd., Charlottetown, at 8 p.m. For more information, call 566-3273.
