About this event
The Ceilidh on Friday, May 17, 2024 in the Katherine Hughes Memorial Hall in the Irish Cultural Centre at 582 North River Road will feature award winning island folk music group Fiddler’s Sons, featuring Eddy Quinn, John B. Webster and Keelin Wedge.

There will be a 50/50 draw during the evening at the air-conditioned, wheelchair accessible and licensed hall. Doors open at 7, show starts at 8. Admission price is $20 at the door. Children twelve and under remain at $5. 

Eddy is the lead vocalist as well as playing guitar and Bodhran. He has released two solo albums for which he has received four PEI Music Awards. Of particular note is that in 2017 the band marked the anniversary of twenty years in the music business with the release of a compilation album of their most requested songs. Fiddlers' Sons: The Best of Twenty Years contains 22 selections written and performed by the band members that explore Island life and its people.

John B. Webster is the group’s lead guitarist and back up vocalist. John B. grew up on the Station Road in Cardigan. From an early age he was interested in music and his home was always filled with it. His father Jackie was a fiddle player and his grandfather Jack had a band called “Jack Webster’s Orchestra” which played all over Kings County and was extremely popular in their time.  He met Eddy Quinn at guitar lessons in Lorne Valley and the rest is history. John has done quite a lot of writing on the five CD’s Fiddlers' Sons have released over the years. 

Keelin Wedge is the newest member of the group and is a very talented vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. She plays fiddle, guitar and also does vocals. Eddy Quinn describes her voice as "She sings like an angel." The power of Keelin's beautiful voice brings silence to the audience in the hall.

Some of the proceeds from the ceilidh events are used by the BIS to support charitable activities in the community. For more information call Kathy at 902-314-8840. The hall will be at capacity for this popular group, so reserve early to make sure you get a seat.
