Per­form­ers an­nounced for evening of en­ter­tain­ment in Mont-Carmel

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The Mont-Carmel Sum­mer Con­cert Se­ries is in full swing for the 2015 sea­son ev­ery Sun­day evening un­til Aug. 30, and the Coopéra­tive de développe­ment cul­turel et pat­ri­mo­nial de Mon­tCarmel (CDCPMC) has an­nounced the artists who will take the stage at the Mon­tCarmel Parish Hall on Sun­day, July 26.

The fourth of nine shows will fea­ture 4 Cord Boys, Alex Mas­den from New Brunswick, Julien Kit­son and Sa­man­tha Ro­bichaud from New Brunswick. There will also be step-danc­ing by Les Steppeuses.

The group mem­bers of 4 Cord Boys (Allan Gallant, Peter Arse­nault, Pierre Poirier and Paul Arse­nault), are all from the Évangé­line area. Dur­ing their show, the group will sing con­tem­po­rary songs; the au­di­ence will surely want to sing along.

Mad­sen is the lead singer, lead gui­tarist and prin­ci­pal song­writer of two-time ECMA award­win­ners The Di­vorcees, an in­ter­na­tion­ally- rec­og­nized coun­try group formed in 2005. He was awarded Mu­sic New Brunswick's Song­writer of the Year Award in 2012. He is cur­rently in pre-pro­duc­tion for a new Di­vorcees al­bum and is mak­ing a de­but solo record­ing.

At the age of four, Julien taught him­self how to play the drums and guitar. Whether he's per­form­ing in English or French, the 13-year-old multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist feels at home on stage. He has also re­leased his first record­ing en­ti­tled “Thir­teen”. In ad­di­tion, he is cur­rently part of the young com­pany of “Anne & Gil­bert: The Mu­si­cal”, per­form­ing at The Guild all sum­mer.

Ro­bichaud has re­leased seven crit­i­cally-ac­claimed al­bums. Her most re­cent, “In The Green Room”, earned her the 2013 Mu­sic N.B. award for Col­lab­o­ra­tive Mu­si­cian of The Year be­cause of the col­lab­o­ra­tive na­ture of the pro­ject. It is a blend of her own solo com­po­si­tions, co-writ­ten tunes and prime se­lec­tions from her con­tem­po­raries. She has been a pro­fes­sional fid­dler, step dancer, vo­cal­ist and al­laround en­ter­tainer dur­ing the last decade and a half.

The con­cert, spon­sored by Le Chez-Nous ltée, will start at 7 p.m. and the doors of the Mon­tCarmel Parish Hall (5786 Route 11, Mont-Carmel) open at 6:15 p.m. The public is in­vited to come early be­cause the seat­ing is lim­ited. Dur­ing the evening, spec­ta­tors will be able to buy 50/50 tick­ets and the can­teen will be open. Ad­mis­sion is $10 for adults, $8 for mem­bers and $4 for stu­dents. Ad­mis­sion is free for preschool­ers.
