More stories, more laughs
Alan Buchanan and Dennis King make guest appearance at July 12 Ceilidh in the City show
The Ceilidh in the City will be hosting two of the Island’s favourite storytellers on Wednesday, July 12, in Charlottetown.
Alan Buchanan and Dennis King, known for their “Two Fellers – Storytellers’’ show, will be joining the weekly hosts – Kendall Docherty, Peter Burke, Heartz Godkin and Brian Knox - at the Jack Blanchard Family Centre at 7 Pond St.
Ceilidh in the City, which starts at 7:30 p.m., features an evening of top-tapping songs and Island tales to keep the audience singing and laughing.
Buchanan has been telling stories in P.E.I. for many years and is known for his historical yet humorous tales of infamous Islanders and characters from his hometown of Belfast. He has a way of transporting the audience back in time when the kitchen table was the source of entertainment, when community members would gather and the legends would unfold.
King hails from Georgetown, another community in the eastern part of the province, tells tales of growing up in a seaport community, the innocence of youth and mischief they found along the way and again tells tales from the kitchen table of the Island characters who helped weave the cultural fabric of the Island.
Canteen service is available, serving snacks, baked goods and refreshments operated by the Holy Redeemer catering staff.
There will also be a 50/50 draw in support of various Island charities through the “Ceilidh Gives Back Fund’’.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for general admission.
