More sto­ries, more laughs

Alan Buchanan and Den­nis King make guest ap­pear­ance at July 12 Ceilidh in the City show

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
