Host Larry Camp­bell is ex­cited to have Keelin Wedge join him for the first ceilidh of 2016 at Winsloe United Church, Jan. 11, 7:30 p.m., weather per­mit­ting.

Wedge, who is from St. Louis, P.E.I., is known as a multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist, play­ing fiddle, gui­tar, bass, man­dolin and drums. She also does some singing and step­danc­ing, giv­ing her the rep­u­ta­tion as a tal­ented per­former who has a lot of en­ergy and loves all kinds of mu­sic.

She plays in a va­ri­ety of groups, in­clud­ing Fid­dlers’ Sons and an acous­tic group with Camp­bell and Andy Payn­ter. She will likely be team­ing up with Camp­bell Mon­day night for a jam or two.

Camp­bell, who is some­times called the Don Wil­liams of coun­try mu­sic, is a mem­ber of the group Neon Moon and has had reg­u­lar gigs at the Wing in Summerside, the Char­lot­te­town Le­gion and Kaylee Hall, just to name a few. He won the Mu­sic P.E.I. Award for blue­grass al­bum of the year in 2004 and 2005 and was nom­i­nated by the ECMA for blue­grass al­bum in 2004 and 2005.

Also join­ing th­ese two mu­si­cians on stage on Mon­day evening will be the house band.

The ceilidh is a fundraiser for Winsloe United Church which is wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble and lo­cated at 121 Winsloe Rd., next to the Con­fed­er­a­tion Trail. A light lunch will be served with doors open­ing at 6:30 p.m. Tick­ets are $10 at the door.
