The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CLASSIFIEDS ENTERTAINMENT - POOLES COR­NER

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.
