Susan Campbell, Peter Burke taking the stage at Winsloe United Church Ceilidh
The performers have been announced for the fundraising ceilidh at Winsloe United Church, set for Monday, July 13, at 7:30 p.m.
Host Larry Campbell has invited country singers Susan Campbell and Peter Burke to join him on stage.
Singing comes naturally for Campbell as she has been performing in bands since the age of 15 with various groups in the Souris area. Originally from Dundas, she performs at many ceilidhs and twice a month she entertains the seniors at the Bayview Lodge in Souris. A resident of Stratford, she also sang the anthem at the P.E.I. Rockets games last year.
Burke is a multi-talented musician who plays drums and bass guitar but most of the time you will see him singing and playing his acoustic guitar. He has been associated with many groups over the years and has played in many venues in eastern Canada, his most recent involvement is with Ceilidh in the City.
Campbell who is sometimes called the Don Williams of country music, is a member of the group, Neon Moon, and has regular gigs at the Wing in Summerside, the Charlottetown Legion and Kaylee Hall just to name a few. He is also a member of an acoustic group consisting of Keelin Wedge and Andy Paynter.
This group performs concerts in St. Louis and surrounding areas. Campbell won the Music P.E.I. Award for bluegrass album of the year in 2004 and 2005 and was nominated by the ECMA for bluegrass album in 2004 and 2005.
Also joining these musicians on stage Monday will be the house band.
The ceilidh is a fundraiser for Winsloe United Church, which is wheel-chair accessible and located at 121 Winsloe Rd., next to the Confederation Trail. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. A light lunch will be served; tickets are $10 at the door.
