On Fri­day, Aug. 11, the Celtic mu­sic group Guin­ness will be the fea­tured per­form­ers for the Ceilidh at the Ir­ish Hall in Charlottetown.

Jim and Laura Far­rell are a hus­band-and-wife team that has been play­ing for au­di­ences in North Amer­ica and Ire­land since 1981. Their mu­si­cal trav­els have taken them all over North Amer­ica from New­found­land to On­tario in Canada and in New York State, Penn­syl­va­nia, South Carolina, Texas and Florida in the United States.

They are now based on Prince Ed­ward Is­land, but they still per­form in­ter­na­tion­ally.

As well as be­ing two strong vo­cal­ists, they ac­com­pany their singing on gui­tar, fid­dle, man­dolin and tin whis­tle.

Also part of the vo­cals for this group is youngest son, Paddy, who plays the bodhran and of­ten will en­ter­tain with a bit of step­danc­ing.

Come and en­joy Ir­ish, Scot­tish and Mar­itime tra­di­tional mu­sic at the air- con­di­tioned Ir­ish Cul­tural Cen­tre lo­cated at 582 North River Rd., Charlottetown.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the mu­sic starts at 8 p.m. There will be a 50/50 draw and a light lunch is served dur­ing in­ter­mis­sion. Ad­mis­sion is at the door. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 902566-3273.
