Artists an­nounced for Mont-Carmel con­cert planned for July 19

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT - GUEST MONT-CARMEL

The Mont-Carmel Sum­mer Con­cert Se­ries is in full throt­tle for the 2015 sea­son ev­ery Sun­day evening un­til Aug. 30.

For this Sun­day, the Coopéra­tive de développe­ment cul­turel et pat­ri­mo­nial de Mont-Carmel (CDCPMC) has an­nounced the third of nine shows will fea­ture Jacinthe LaFor­est, Caro­line Savoie, Amy and Rachel Beck and The Ross Fam­ily at the Mont-Carmel Parish Hall.

The con­cert gets un­der­way at 7 p.m.

LaFor­est, re­cip­i­ent of the Singer of the Year Award dur­ing the first Gala de la chan­son of Prince Ed­ward Is­land in 2006, is a jour­nal­ist, singer and pro­fes­sional vis­ual artist. She also wrote the French lyrics of the Aca­dian Na­tional An­them, the Ave Maris Stella.

Savoie’s pow­er­ful voice, dis­tinc­tive tone and tim­bre, her vo­cal con­trol and her dis­arm­ing nat­u­ral­ness are all part of her unique sig­na­ture.

“A ray of sun­shine, gen­uine, sparkling, daz­zling, bril­liant, a rare find - these are but a few of the praises be­stowed by the public, the media and peers from the mu­sic in­dus­try on this in­sanely charis­matic 20-year old Aca­dian artist who leaves no one in­dif­fer­ent in her wake,” says a re­lease.

It’s hard to beat the har­monic in­tu­ition of sis­ters, and the Becks, who be­gan singing to­gether around the fam­ily pi­ano in Mon­tague, now now share their folksy pop with au­di­ences across eastern Canada. They are also cel­e­brat­ing the re­lease of their multi award-nom­i­nated sopho­more al­bum, “Run”.

Grow­ing up in a blend of Aca­dian and Scot­tish in­flu­ences, Stephanie Ross (vo­cals, guitar, dance), Danielle Ross (vo­cals, fid­dle, dance) and Johnny Ross (pi­ano) cre­ate the Ross Fam­ily, a trio that plays tra­di­tional tunes and step dance to­gether. The Ross Fam­ily is known from tip to tip of the Is­land for en­er­getic per­for­mances, and 2006, the group has pre­sented the Ross Fam­ily Ceilidh in Stan­ley Bridge.

The doors of the Mont-Carmel Parish Hall (5786 Route 11, Mont-Carmel) will open at 6:15 p.m. The public is in­vited to come early be­cause the seat­ing is lim­ited.

Spec­ta­tors will be able to buy 50/50 tick­ets and the can­teen will be open. Ad­mis­sion for the con­cert, which is spon­sored by the Welling­ton Le­gion and Arse­nault’s Fish Mart, is $10 for adults, $8 for mem­bers and $4 for stu­dents. Ad­mis­sion is free for preschool­ers. The 2015 lineup is at www.co­op­er­a­tivecul­turellede­mont­carmel.com.
