Long River Play­ers guests for Celidh in the City

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

The July 26 edi­tion of the Ceilidh in the City will fea­ture a night of tra­di­tional East Coast mu­sic with spe­cial guests, the Long River Play­ers.

The group of friends and neigh­bours in­cludes Pete Bland­ing, Gayle Mur­phy, Gary Arse­nault and Cindy Bland­ing. They are best known for their pop­u­lar ceilidhs at the Mur­ray Cen­tre in Kens­ing­ton for the past 13 years.

The band’s vo­cal har­monies and use of fid­dle, whis­tle, gui­tar, man­dolin, banjo and key­board add to the au­di­ence’s en­joy­ment of their mu­sic, which ranges from Celtic and Mar­itime to roots/tra­di­tional songs and tunes with lots of hu­mour thrown in along the way.

The Long River Play­ers will be join­ing the hosts of the ceilidh, Ken­dall Docherty, Peter Burke, Heartz God­kin and Brian Knox, for what promises to be a true East Coast kitchen party.

The show will get un­der­way at 7:30 p.m. at the Jack Blanchard Fam­ily Cen­tre, 7 Pond St. in Char­lot­te­town. Tickets are at the door, which opens at 6:30 p.m. for gen­eral ad­mis­sion.

There will be a can­teen ser­vice with a se­lec­tion of freshly baked pies and other snacks and bev­er­ages. There will also be a 50/50 draw in sup­port of var­i­ous Is­land char­i­ties through the Ceilidh Gives Back Fund. For in­for­ma­tion, call Docherty at 902-569-1133 or Knox at 902569-3327 or go to face­book. com/Ceilid­hInTheCity.
