The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Fid­dlers’ Sons is re­turn­ing to Emer­ald to­day at 7:30 p.m. with their new CD, “The Best of 20 Years’’.

The band’s main­stay fid­dler for more than 10 years, Courtney Ho­gan, is happy to wel­come friends Eddy Quinn and Jon Web­ster back to the Emer­ald ceilidhs hosted at the Emer­ald Box­car Pub & Grill.

The band will be joined by one of P.E.I.’s most dec­o­rated step­dancers, Janelle Banks.

Fid­dlers’ Sons have been awarded nu­mer­ous Mu­sic P.E.I. awards and have become one of the most pop­u­lar groups around the Is­land. The group was orig­i­nally the idea of lead singer Quinn of Cardi­gan, who per­formed reg­u­larly in a coun­try/rock band.

With a strong in­ter­est in tra­di­tional mu­sic their playlist now re­flects the Scot­tish and Ir­ish roots of the Is­land and in­cludes many original songs writ­ten by the band mem­bers.

Ad­mis­sion is $10 at the door. 50/50 tick­ets will be on sale and strawberry jam from the fid­dler’s field and sou­venir ceilidh shirts will also be avail­able.
