P.E.I.’s red­headed fid­dler wel­comes Richard Wood, Gor­don Belsher

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT/COMMUNITY -

Anne may be P.E.I.’s best­known red­head, but fid­dler Court­ney Ho­gan is work­ing hard to change that.

Most nights, the Emer­ald res­i­dent can be found play­ing in a small hall some­where in P.E.I., but Fri­day nights at the Emer­ald Box­car is where she usu­ally hangs her hat.

Ho­gan is joined by new guests ev­ery week, but ad­mits that when she calls up her friend and men­tor Richard Wood for a show, the small Com­mu­nity Cen­tre turns into one of the big­gest mu­si­cal tal­ent venues in the coun­try.

Wood, the for­mer fid­dler for Sha­nia Twain has played at Carnegie Hall and per­formed for the prime min­is­ter, Queen of Eng­land and Em­peror of Ja­pan.

On Fri­day, July 7, vo­cal­ist and gui­tarist Gor­don Belsher and award win­ning step-dancer Kristyn Visser at The Box­car will also join Ho­gan and Wood.

The ceilidh be­gins at 7:30 p.m., with doors open­ing for food and drinks at 5:30 p.m. Ad­mis­sion at the door. As well 50/50 tick­ets, CDs and ceilidh sou­venir t-shirts will be avail­able.
