Performers set to take the stage in Mont-Carmel
The Mont-Carmel Summer Concert Series is currently in full swing and will continue every Sunday evening until Aug. 30.
The artists who will take the stage at the Mont-Carmel Parish Hall on Sunday, Aug. 2, for the fifth show of the season are 112 Accords, Charlie A'Court, Gary Gallant and Peter Arsenault. There will also be step-dancing by Les gars de par Chez Nous.
The group 112 Accords is made up of Janelle Arsenault on fiddle and vocals, Mélanie Arsenault on fiddle, ukulele and vocals, Joceline Leblanc on vocals and guitar, Colby Arsenault on piano, Jenny Richard on ukulele and vocals and Britney Arsenault on guitar and vocals. This young dynamic group from the Evangeline area recently took home the silver medal during the cultural component of the Acadian Games. This group is working under the direction of numerous artists in order to refine their stage presentation and their craft. Among these are Louise Arsenault, Hélène Bergeron, Stéphane Bouchard and some of the members of the group Vishtèn.
A singer/songwriter and guitarist, A'Court is the proverbial force to be reckoned with. Planted at the crossroads of roots and soul, his voice, guitar work and contemporary songwriting have earned him an international following. Over the years, he has received a host of awards and accolades for his five solo albums, including his latest offering, "Come On Over", winner of the 2015 East Coast Music Award for blues recording of the year. A'Court is most revered for his dynamic and engaging live performance, has been named Music Nova Scotia's Entertainer of the Year twice and has received five East Coast Music Awards in a variety of different categories.
Singer/songwriter Gallant from Mont-Carmel has many years of experience performing on stage. Over time, his songs have received quite a bit of radio play and have been featured on television. He is a true artist who manages to express himself through his songs as well as on stage with a captivating presence.
Arsenault, the well-known fiddle player from the Evangeline area, will also make an appearance on stage. His spirited melodies will not only make audiences members tap their feet but will also warm up the floor for Les Gars de par chez-nous.
The concert will start at 7 p.m., and the doors of the Mont-Carmel 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. The 2015 lineup is at www.cooperativeculturelledemontcarmel.com.
Peter Arsenault will be one of the musicians to perform this Sunday evening at the Mont-Carmel Summer Concert Series.
