P.E.I.’s duo on stage at Emer­ald Box­car

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
