The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
