The Ceilidh in the City welcomes fiddler Billy MacInnis, singer and guitar player Leon Gallant and Johnny Theodore on piano as the special guests for Wednesday evening’s show at the Jack Blanchard Family Centre located at 7 Pond St.
This show will be getting underway at 7:30 p.m. and will feature two hours of high-energy toe-tapping music.
MacInnis is a celebrated Island fiddler who spent nine years on the road touring with Canadian Music Legend Stompin Tom Connors. He has a knack for both traditional East Coast fiddle music as well the stylings of the Ottawa River Valley.
With a selection of songs that celebrates life in the Maritimes, Gallant entertains both on guitar and with his voice.
Theodore has had a musical career which has spanned close to four decades touring with Mark Haines in the 1980s and alongside Don Heron "Charlie Farquarson" and Catherine MacKinnon.
The trio will be joining the weekly hosts of the Ceilidh in the City – Kendall Docherty, Peter Burke, Brian Knox and Heartz Godkin – for a night of music in Charlottetown.
The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for general admission with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. There will be a canteen service operated by the catering staff at the Jack Blanchard Centre as well as a 50/50 draw in support of the Ceilidh Gives Back fund, which supports various Island charities and families in need.
