Second of nine shows at Mont Carmel Parish Hall is Sunday
Artists have been announced for the second of nine shows to take place at the Mont-Carmel Parish Hall this summer.
This Sunday, July 9, will include performances by Jeffery Straker, Laurie LeBlanc, Cassie and Maggie MacDonald and stepdancing by Les Steppettes.
Straker, a pianist who’s originally from Saskatchewan but now lives in Ontario, performs more than 100 shows per year across Canada and abroad. His latest album charted in the top 10 on iTunes Canada.
LeBlanc, a singer-songwriter from New Brunswick, has been topping the francophone country music charts and has accumulated numerous awards since the release of his first recording “La Pitoune.”
Born and raised in a Nova Scotia family with a rich musical heritage, Cassie and Maggie MacDonald turn heads with their infectious energy, driving rhythms and lilting melodies.
The sisters incorporate lively fiddle, piano and guitar arrangements with their vocal harmonies in both English and Gaelic, complemented by their stepdancing s tyle.
Les Steppettes — Danika Richard, Isabelle Richards, Emily Arsenault, Katherine Arsenault, Keera Gallant, Jorja Rae Thompson, Gabrielle Gallant and Madelaine Richards — also perform.
The concerts will take place each Sunday until Aug. 27, beginning at 7 p.m. at the hall, 5786 Route 11. The public is invited to come early because the seating is limited.
