Friends, along with special guests, to perform at Winsloe United Church ceilidh, July 27
Host Dino Dunsford is looking forward to having the group Friends return to perform at the Winsloe United Church ceilidh on Monday, July 27, starting at 7:30 p.m.
This group, which came together to perform at nursing homes to bring enjoyment to the residents in song and humour, has branched out and is now entertaining at churches and ceilidhs.
Consisting of Ann MacDougald, vocals, Ann Morais, vocals and guitar, Mary Hughes Power, vocals and dejembe; and Carol Gillan, vocals and guitar, they put on an entertaining performance the audience is sure to enjoy.
A special treat for the evening will be Dr. Alfred Morais, who will be singing the song he sang at his daughter’s wedding, I Loved Her First.
“This is such a powerful song you may need to have a tissue on hand,” says a release. “We are very excited to have Dr. Morais perform at the ceilidh.
Fiddler Jason Campbell, who received a standing ovation the last time he performed, will take the stage again Monday evening. He has written a beautiful tune called the Broken Waltz, which he will likely be requested to play.
Dunsford has been entertaining audiences for over four decades in many genres of music. He began his career as a rock ‘n’ roll singer with Dino and the Satins in the 1960s and continues with various groups right up until the present. He has been involved in country, Irish/traditional and, most recently, gospel where he won an award for best gospel CD in 2004.
Dunsford will be covering favorite artists such as Johnny Reid, Elvis Presley, John McDermitt and the Gaithers. He will also be quite willing to fulfil requests.
In addition, joining these fine musicians will be the house band.
This is a fundraising ceilidh for Winsloe United Church, which is located at 121 Winlsoe Rd., next to the Confederation Trail and is wheelchair accessible.
There will be a light lunch served. Tickets are $10 at the door with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.
Friends, a group made up of Ann MacDougald, Ann Morais, Mary Hughes Power and Carol Gillan, will perform at Winsloe United Church on Monday evening.
