Ceilidh in the City presents an evening of blue­grass mu­sic

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES/ENTERTAINMENT -

Ban­jos, man­dolins and gui­tars will be strum­ming away at the next Ceilidh in the City on Wed­nes­day, July 29, with spe­cial guests Serge Bernard and Janet McGarry, along with Dy­lan Fer­gu­son.

Bernard and McGarry are a dy­namic duo who are kept busy in the blue­grass and tra­di­tional coun­try cir­cuit, per­form­ing at fes­ti­vals all across At­lantic Canada. Bernard is a multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist, play­ing guitar, banjo, fid­dle, man­dolin with ease, as well as a har­mony singer who joins McGarry in ren­di­tions of many songs. He is also well­known as the host of the pop­u­lar ra­dio pro­gram, “Blue­grass Is­land”, which airs weekly on CFCY. McGarry is a pop­u­lar singer, with a voice sweet and true, who sings clas­sic coun­try and blue­grass num­bers with ease. McGarry also has a long list of record­ings to her credit, many of which will be avail­able at the show.

Join­ing them is Dy­lan Fer­gu­son, a young, up-and-com­ing Is­land per­former who has been wow­ing au­di­ences all across P.E.I. and the Mar­itimes.

“As a young mu­si­cian, it is al­most as if he was trans­ported from back in time with the ease and skill that he per­forms clas­sic coun­try and blue­grass num­bers,” says a re­lease.

The three per­form­ers will all be join­ing the weekly hosts of the ceilidh, Kendall Docherty, Peter Burke, Heartz God­kin and Brian Knox, at the Murchi­son Cen­tre, which is lo­cated on St. Pius X Ave. in Char­lot­te­town. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. show time with gen­eral ad­mis­sion.

Reser­va­tions are ac­cepted for those trav­el­ling in groups or with spe­cial med­i­cal or mo­bil­ity needs. For in­for­ma­tion or reser­va­tions, feel free to call Docherty at 902-569-1133 or Knox at 902569-3327. This event sup­ports the P.E.I Cana­dian Men­tal Health As­so­ci­a­tion through a weekly 50/50 draw, can­teen ser­vice and fa­cil­ity rental.
