The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

The Close to the Ground Con­cert se­ries with hosts Fid­dlers’ Sons and Keelin Wedge con­tin­ues tonight at 8 p.m. at the Kaylee Hall in Poole’s Cor­ner.

This week there will be guest per­for­mances by mu­si­cian Kel­ley Mooney and sto­ry­teller Denny King.

Mooney, an award-win­ning singer-song­writer, is one of the Is­land’s busiest per­form­ers. She makes many solo ap­pear­ances at con­certs and ceilidhs. She is also part of groups like Water­town and Lady Soul.

Her spir­i­tual lyri­cal adap­ta­tion of Leonard Co­hen’s song “Hal­lelu­jah” has been viewed over eight mil­lion times on line.

Her two al­bums, “To­mor­row” and “Still”, have gar­nered mul­ti­ple Mu­sic P.E.I. and ECMA nom­i­na­tions and awards.

King in­her­ited his fam­ily’s sto­ry­telling gene.

His fa­ther, Lionel, along with his un­cles, Jack and Don­ald, were le­gendary sto­ry­tellers from east­ern P.E.I.

King, who is one of the per­form­ers in the Four Tell­ers, owns and op­er­ates a com­mu­ni­ca­tions con­sult­ing firm in Char­lot­te­town and serves as the play-by-play broad­caster for the Uni­ver­sity of Prince Ed­ward Is­land Panthers hockey team. He re­cently wrote and re­leased his first book of short sto­ries, “The Day They Shot Raveen” and will have copies avail­able for sale to night.

The air-con­di­tioned Kaylee Hall is lo­cated at the in­ter­sec­tion of Route 3 and 4 near Mon­tague.

There will be a can­teen ser­vice, 50/50 draw. Ad­mis­sion is cash at the door.


Kelly Mooney and Denny King are the spe­cial guests at tod­night’s edi­tion of the Egg Farm­ers Of Prince Ed­ward Is­land Close to the Ground Con­cert se­ries at the Kaylee Hall in Pooles Cor­ner.
