Record­ing artists to take the stage

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Sun­day Night Shenani­gans, hosted by Judy Ma­cLean at York Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, wel­comes sev­eral en­ter­tain­ers, in­clud­ing two pop­u­lar record­ing artists, to the stage for an evening of Is­land en­ter­tain­ment on July 12 at 7 p.m.

For fans of clas­sic coun­try mu­sic, Lester MacPher­son will thrill the au­di­ence for sure with some vintage tunes he loves to sing by such artists as Ge­orge Jones, Merle Hag­gard, Vern Gos­din and more. Known as P.E.I.’s coun­try gen­tle­man, MacPher­son will also per­form songs from his new­est al­bum called “Don’t Stop the Mu­sic”, which was recorded by Serge Bernard of Diamond Pro­duc­tions, along with har­monies by Janet McGarry and Bernard.

Also grac­ing the stage, is well­known vo­cal­ist Su­san Camp­bell whose early ca­reer in­cluded play­ing with a cou­ple of coun­try/rock bands which in­cluded a group called Slave. She pro­duced a self-ti­tled al­bum of her favourite num­bers and con­tin­ues to per­form lo­cally and at spe­cial events such as The Rock­ets hockey games where she sang O Canada on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, as well as the RCMP Mu­si­cal Ride and the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion open­ing cer­e­monies for Ar­mistice Day. She will have backup mu­sic by Peter Burke on key­boards.

The Judy Ma­cLean Dancers, al­ways a high­light, will fea­ture dancer Kristyn Visser, who will be ac­com­pa­nied by Jason Camp­bell on fid­dle. Em­mett De- Coursey will no doubt keep ev­ery­one chuck­ling with his self­penned tunes and coun­try songs.

The fun evening will in­clude 50/50 draw, a Visi­tor From Away prize, artists CDs for pur­chase and a light lunch.

Tick­ets are avail­able at the door 6 p.m. Call 902-566-5545.
