Fiddlers' Sons and Courtney Hogan will kick off the Benevolent Irish Society's winter concert series "Ceol Agus Caidre" Friday, Jan. 17, at 8 p.m. at the BIS Hall at 582 North River Road in Charlottetown.
The series, which will feature the finest traditional singers and musicians from the Island, was designed to help music fans get through the long winter months. Being one of their most popular acts at the hall, it was only fitting to have Fiddlers' Sons kick things off.
The group's popular repertoire of Celtic, folk, Maritime and original P.E.I. music along with lively fiddle tunes and stories have made them one of the longest running and most popular traditional bands on P.E.I. 2014 will mark 17 years for Fiddlers' Sons.
Along with Hogan on fiddle, band members include Garth Matthews on bass, John Webster on guitar and the award winning singer/songwriter and host Eddy Quinn.
The show is open to all ages with admission by cash only at the door. The Ceol Agus Caidre concert series will run every second Friday during the winter months. The next installment on Jan. 31 will feature Cape Breton fiddler Rannie MacLellan.
