Chaisson Trio will be on stage
On Friday, the Ceilidh at the Irish Hall welcomes back the Chaisson Trio that consists of Kevin Chaisson – keyboard and vocals and Louise Chaisson MacKinnon – guitar and vocals, both members of the legendary Chaisson Family of Bear River.
The group’s featured fiddler is Rannie MacLellan from South West Margaree, Cape Breton, who now lives on the Island. The group’s offerings include medleys of Scottish and Irish jigs and reels, beautiful strathspeys, and lovely slow airs, mixed with traditional ballads featuring Louise’s beautiful voice.
