WINSLOE, P.E.I. – Any time Eddy Quinn and Keelin Wedge perform at the Winsloe Ceilidh, the place is packed. This is likely to be the case this coming Monday at Winsloe United Church starting at 7:30 p.m.
They, along with host Dunsford, are sure to get the audience involved by singing and clapping along.
Quinn was raised in Cardigan and the third of four children. He began his music career at a young age, and after winning a singing competition on Bud Country, he became lead singer with Urban Outlaws, and later with the Johnny Ross Band, Old Habits and now Fiddlers Sons. Fiddlers Sons have released five albums and Quinn was nominated for an East Coast Music Award and has won several P.E.I. Music awards including Vocalist of the Year and Country Album of the Year.
Wedge from St. Louis is a multi-instrumentalist playing fiddle, guitar, mandolin and drums and is an entertaining singer and step-dancer. A performer with lots of energy and a love for all kinds of music. She plays in a variety of groups including Fiddlers Sons and she and Eddy will be teaming up along with the house band for an evening of toe-tapping fiddle music, amazing guitar playing and vocals.
The last time these two performed at the ceilidh they got a standing ovation.
The Oct. 23 ceilidh is a fundraiser for Winsloe United Church, located at 121 Winsloe Road. The church is wheelchair accessible. There will be a light lunch and tickets are $10 at the door, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.
