The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
