P.E.I.’s duo on stage at Emerald Boxcar
There would be few to argue that fiddler Richard Wood would be one of P.E.I.’s most well-known, accomplished and successful musicians. But despite his success, he has always called Prince Edward Island home and enjoys playing to packed crowds at small venues and pubs across the province, including a special stop Friday night at the Emerald Boxcar to share the stage with his good friend, Courtney Hogan.
“We got together a lot over last winter to jam out some new material together,” said Hogan, adding Wood has even been giving her keyboard to play along with his “Don Messer” set of tunes.
In addition, Hogan has even picked up a new fiddle set of her own consisting of Wood’s original materials.
The fiery fiddlers will be joined on stage by Wood’s touring singer and guitarist Gordon Belsher. No stranger to the music scene, Belsher has entertained audiences for over 40 years, playing at concerts, conventions, ceilidhs and pubs all around the world.
They’ll be joined on stage by one of P.E.I.’s most accomplished step dancers, Allanna Dalziel. She has a long list of accomplishments, including recently winning P.E.I.’s Got Talent as part of a step-dancing duo with her sister.
The ceilidh begins at 7:30 p.m. The Emerald Boxcar Pub & Grill will be open for food and drinks starting at 5:30 p.m., including their new express menu.
Admission is at the door and the venue is licensed and air conditioned.
All ages are welcome and CD’s, 50/50 tickets, souvenir postcards and t-shirts will also be available.
