Winsloe church welcomes Friends
Ceilidh features Dino Dunsford and Friends
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.
Friends Mary Hughes Power, Ann MacDougald, Carol Gillan and Ann Morais will perform at Winsloe United Church on Monday.
