Barn dance planned for Satur­day night

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The Hunter River Lion’s Club is spon­sor­ing a Big Barn Dance on Satur­day, July 18, at the farm of Frank and Bea Do­iron, 4749 Ren­nie’s Rd., just north of Hunter River, with great mu­sic to be supplied by Sel­dom Heard, as well as guest fid­dler Vanessa Bernard and her fa­ther, Jack.

There will also be a 50/50 draw, as well as a light lunch supplied by the Lion’s Club.

Sel­dom Heard nor­mally plays at lo­cal se­niors’ homes, and is rarely heard in public venues. When the group does per­form at a ceilidh, it usu­ally gets to per­form only a few songs, so the group’s name is very ap­pro­pri­ate.

Sel­dom Heard con­sists of Neil Matthews, a well-known coun­try singer and record­ing artist, Billy Gallant and Dennis “Ze­phyrin” Boudreau, who are orig­i­nal mem­bers of the 1960s dance band, The Miss­ing Links, and spe­cial singer John O’Hal­lo­ran.

Gallant has re­cently re­turned to P.E.I. from On­tario, where he per­formed with sev­eral groups in var­i­ous venues, singing and play­ing guitar. Boudreau, a.k.a. the Wal-Mart Greeter, has been singing, pound­ing pi­ano and writ­ing songs for many years. His Wal-Mart Greeter Song has been heard by many, and his Mike Duffy Song has been fea­tured on The CBC’s “The Fifth Es­tate” in con­nec­tion with a fea­tured story.

There may also be a few sur­prise guests tak­ing part in this Big Barn Dance.

The mu­sic be­gins at 7 p.m. and goes un­til 11 p.m. with pro­ceeds go­ing to the Hunter River Lion’s Club in sup­port of com­mu­nity projects.
