Emer­ald host­ing Tre­ble with Girls

Ceilidh in the Box­car Pub and Grill

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

P.E.I. fid­dler Court­ney Ho­gan will be host­ing her weekly ceilidh tonight at the Emer­ald Box­car Pub and Grill.

Ho­gan’s also bring­ing along some old friends, but new faces to Emer­ald — the Celtic group Tre­ble with Girls.

Over her ca­reer, Ho­gan has launched four al­bums and has shared the stage with some of Canada’s best per­form­ers. This week will be no ex­cep­tion as she’ll be joined by Max­ine MacLel­lan, Jolee Patkai and Nor­man Stewart, who make up Tre­ble with Girls, along with Sheila MacKenzie.

With a reper­toire full of Mar­itime, Celtic, coun­try and folk mu­sic along with orig­i­nal songs and out­stand­ing har­mony vo­cals, Tre­ble with Girls is sure to be­come an Emer­ald Ceilidh favourite. Com­bined, the band has re­ceived sev­eral P.E.I. Mu­sic Award nom­i­na­tions over the years in the roots tra­di­tional, fe­male vo­cal­ist and coun­try record­ing cat­e­gories.

A kitchen party wouldn’t be the same with­out a step dancer, and Ho­gan will welcome her good friend, Madi­son Coles, who has won sev­eral P.E.I. danc­ing awards.

The mu­sic, fid­dle tunes, danc­ing, sto­ries and laughs will start at 7:30 p.m. with a $10 ad­mis­sion at the door. The pub will open at 5:30 p.m. for food and drinks, and the cozy ru­ral venue is li­censed and air-con­di­tioned. A 50/50 draw, CDs, P.E.I. post­cards and ceilidh sou­venir T-shirts will also be for sale.
