Brian Dunn joins hosts tonight

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

Hosts of the Brack­ley Beach Fid­dle and Song con­cert se­ries, Jon Matthews and Sheila MacKen­zie, welcome P.E.I. singer/song­writer Brian Dunn to their stage at the Brack­ley Beach Com­mu­nity Cen­tre to­day at 7:30 p.m.

In the mid 1990s, Dunn played in the Celtic-folk band Life of Reilly with Michael Pen­der­gast. They trav­elled across At­lantic Canada en­ter­tain­ing their au­di­ences with their blend of mu­sic and hu­mour.

Af­ter leav­ing the band to go to school in Mis­sis­sippi, Dunn took his Mar­itime East Coast songs and sto­ries to cof­fee shops, fes­ti­vals and pubs on the Gulf Coast from Biloxi to New Or­leans. It wasn't long be­fore the Mar­itime heart in his mu­sic was in­fused with the eclec­tic, soul­ful and easy groove of the South.

Upon re­turn­ing to P.E.I. in 2006 with his fam­ily, Dunn was ex­cited about the ro­bust singer­song­writer scene on the Is­land and is now one of the busiest en­ter­tain­ers in that scene.

The air-con­di­tioned and wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble Brack­ley Beach Com­mu­nity Cen­tre is lo­cated at 3330 Brack­ley Point Rd. (Route 15) just out­side of Char­lot­te­town.

All ages are welcome with ad­mis­sion by cash only at the doors, which open at 7 p.m.
