Winsloe church wel­comes Friends

Ceilidh fea­tures Dino Dunsford and Friends

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The group Friends will per­form at the Winsloe United Church ceilidh on Mon­day be­gin­ning at 7:30 p.m.

Friends, fea­tur­ing host Dino Dunsford, wel­comes Alf Mo­rais and sax­o­phon­ist Gary Cud­more.

Friends got to­gether to per­form at nurs­ing homes to bring en­joy­ment to res­i­dents in song and hu­mour.

It has since branched out and is now en­ter­tain­ing at churches and ceilidhs.

Friends con­sists of Mary Hughes Power, vo­cals and djembe; Ann MacDougald, vo­cals; Carol Gil­lan, vo­cals and guitar; and Ann Mo­rais, vo­cals and guitar.

Many will rec­og­nize Cud­more from his days as an orig­i­nal mem­ber of the Blue Crys­tals in 1964. He now plays sax with the Grand­dad­dies of Rock ‘n Roll and is the church or­gan­ist at the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer.

Cud­more is look­ing for­ward to the fi­nale on Mon­day when he will team up with Dunsford and the host band for the big clos­ing num­ber.

Dunsford, of course, be­gan his ca­reer as a rock ‘n roll singer with Dino and the Satins in the 1960s. He’s still go­ing to­day, belt­ing out coun­try, Ir­ish/tra­di­tional and most re­cently gospel where he won an award for best gospel CD.

This ceilidh is a fundraiser for the church, lo­cated at 121 Winsloe Rd., next to the Con­fed­er­a­tion Trail.

There will be a light lunch served.

Tick­ets are $10 at the door, which opens at 6:30 p.m.
