Con­cert se­ries con­tin­ues Sun­day

Mont Carmel Par­ish Hall hosts the mu­si­cal per­for­mances

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The Mont-Carmel Summer Con­cert Se­ries is now in full throt­tle and will be ev­ery Sun­day night un­til Aug. 27 in the par­ish hall.

This Sun­day, the fourth con­cert in the se­ries will fea­ture Les Hay Ba­bies, Kim Albert and Cyn­thia Ma­cLeod. There will also be step danc­ing by Alex Arse­nault as well as Is­abelle and Danielle Saunders.

Les Hay Ba­bies is an in­diefolk trio made up of three women with vi­brant per­son­al­i­ties. Orig­i­nally from three dif­fer­ent ar­eas of New Brunswick, Ka­trine Noël, Vi­vianne Roy and Julie Aubé weave their dif­fer­ent ac­cents to­gether in or­der to create an ap­peas­ing am­biance and to present their own in­die-folk recipe.

They were se­lected as the win­ner of Fran­cou­vertes in 2013 and since then, the awards and nom­i­na­tions have been pil­ing up. In 2015, their al­bum, “My Home­sick Heart”, re­ceived the award for fran­co­phone record­ing of the year at the East Coast Mu­sic Awards. Les Hey Ba­bies will be per­form­ing songs from their brand new al­bum en­ti­tled “La 4ième di­men­sion (ver­sion longue)”.

Albert grew up on coun­try mu­sic. At the age of five, she made her first stage ap­pear­ance and never slowed down since. Nom­i­nated at the East Coast Mu­sic Awards and the Mu­sic P.E.I. Awards, she has also show­cased at the Cana­dian Coun­try Mu­sic Awards and had many of her sin­gles played on coun­try mu­sic ra­dio sta­tions across Canada. She has also per­formed across Canada, the United States of Amer­ica, Dubai and the Vir­gin Is­lands. Albert cur­rently plays with her band Kim Albert and Faces.

Ma­cLeod is best known for her bound­less fid­dling en­ergy on stage, en­thu­si­as­ti­cally weav­ing through jigs and reels ac­cented by sweet waltzes and beau­ti­ful airs. When she’s not tap­ping her feet on stages or in record­ing stu­dios, she works with the Fes­ti­val of Small Halls as its artis­tic di­rec­tor. The sound of her fid­dle will warm up the floor for the three step dancers.

The con­cert will start at 7 p.m.; doors open at 6:15 p.m. and seat­ing is limited. There will also be a 50/50 draw and a can­teen.

Ad­mis­sion is $12 for adults, $10 for mem­bers of the Coopéra­tive de développe­ment cul­turel et pat­ri­mo­nial de Mont-Carmel, $5 for stu­dents and free for preschool­ers.
