Time to get cracking with some Island music
Fiddlers’ Sons and Keelin Wedge welcome Meaghan Blanchard to Close to the Ground concert series on Thursday
The Egg Farmers Of P.E.I.’s Close To The Ground concert series continues Thursday at 8 p.m. at Kaylee Hall.
Hosts Fiddlers’ Sons and Keelin Wedge welcome special guest Meaghan Blanchard.
Blanchard is an acclaimed multiple award-winning artist who took home her second East Coast Music Award for her third album “She’s Gonna Fly”. Her songwriting weaves her family stories into song and adapts the tales of local legends; capturing the hardships of rural life in Eastern Canada along with the beauty of the landscape she was raised in.
She has performed for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, played 47 shows in 15 days at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and has toured extensively across Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. In 2015, the Meaghan Blanchard Song Writing Camp for Girls was inaugurated in Charlottetown, a two-day camp created and hosted by Blanchard with a focus on co-writing, providing support for young women from her home province who are interested in songwriting and in careers within the music industry.
The air conditioned Kaylee Hall is located at the intersection of Route 3 and 4 near Montague. There will be a 50/50 draw, canteen service and admission is at the door.
