The Ceilidh on Thursday, October 11th, in the Irish Cultural Centre at 582 North River Road will feature The Queens County Fiddlers who are joined by the award-winning step dancers Janelle Banks and Molly MacEwen.

The Queens County Fiddlers (QCF) is one of the five Fiddlers Societies of P.E.I. whose mission is to preserve and promote fiddle music on Prince Edward Island. Consisting of musicians of all ages, the group comes together to play and share in their love of fiddle music with a repertoire encompassing both modern tunes and traditional favorites across Scottish, Irish and Cape Breton styles. The group also plays some tunes written by Prince Edward Island tune-makers and has recorded two CDs, both of which will be available for sale at the ceilidh.

The Queens County Fiddlers has always been the largest and most structured branch of the PEI Fiddlers’ Society. Rehearsals are formal and well organized, most of the repertoire consists of published versions of Scottish, Irish, and Cape Breton tunes, and there is much emphasis on playing standard tune versions. Instead of establishing a separate fiddle school, the QCF has tried to integrate instruction into its weekly rehearsals Janelle Banks and Molly MacEwen both train with Havenwood Studios, Charlottetown.

They have both won numerous awards for their step and tap dancing in Atlantic competitions as well National and International events. They recently competed in a National competition and Dance world cup hosted in Quebec City representing PEI, where they were both named "Dancer Of the Year”.

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. Tickets are available on the website or at the door. $20 adults and $5 (under 12).

For more information call Kathy at 902-314-8840. Come out for a night of wonderful music.
