Ceilidh features Guinness
The Irish Hall in Charlottetown hosts group
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.
Guinness Duo Laura and Jim Farrell along with son Paddy will perform at the Irish Hall on Aug. 11.
