Ceilidh in the City will fea­ture an evening of in­spi­ra­tional and gospel mu­sic tonight with spe­cial guest per­for­mances by Kel­ley Mooney, Kim Mooney and Larry Koughan.

For the past three sea­sons, Ceilidh in the City has had two spe­cial shows fea­tur­ing gospel mu­sic and some of the best known Chris­tian singers on P.E.I. Kel­ley Mooney is a name which needs lit­tle in­tro­duc­tion in this province or to Youtube view­ers around the globe af­ter her lyri­cal adap­ta­tion of Leonard Co­hen's Hal­lelu­jah vent vi­ral with just un­der one mil­lion views. She re­cently re­leased her new­est al­bum, “Still”, which fea­tures Mooney's ven­ture into Chris­tian mu­sic with a rich blend of orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions and tra­di­tional se­lec­tions, many which she will be shar­ing with the ceilidh au­di­ence.

Join­ing her is her sis­ter, Kim Mooney, and Larry Koughan. Kim, a pi­ano player and har­mony singer, will be join­ing Kelly and Koughan for sev­eral num­bers.

Koughan is a singer and guitar player with a wide vo­cal range who does ren­di­tions of both tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary tunes like I Can Only Imag­ine by the Chris­tian group, Mercy Me.

The three per­form­ers will be join­ing the weekly hosts of the Ceilidh in the City, Kendall Docherty, Peter Burke, Heartz God­kin and Brian Knox, at the Murchi­son Cen­tre on St. Pius X Av­enue in Char­lot­te­town.

The con­cert se­ries takes place at 7:30 p.m. with doors open­ing at 6:30 p.m. for gen­eral ad­mis­sion. There is a weekly 50/50 draw and can­teen ser­vice, with pro­ceeds di­rected to the P.E.I Cana­dian Men­tal Health As­so­ci­a­tion.
