Ceilidh in the City presents an evening of bluegrass music
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.
