SUMMERSIDE – Louise Arsenault, her son Jonathan and other family members will rattle the dust out of the rafters at Trinity United Church as they kick off the 2018 -2019 Trinity United Concert Series. Louise has had a long impressive career in music, playing the fiddle in traditional/folk settings all over the world. Her part in the group Barachois is a highlight to her long list of projects, taking to all four corners of the planet with her vibrant and energetic fiddle playing and feet stomping.
She is one of the founders of the bands Les Girls and Gadelle, and over the years, she has also performed individually, together and with numerous other musical artists.
There are those who claim that, if you watch her fiddle playing closely, you just might see the smoke rising from her bow.
Jonathan is a jester of modern times. He started off playing the violin like his mom but ended up settling on acoustic guitar along with whatever instrument is at his disposal.
He has accompanied his mom on many occasions, bringing the house down before a crowd of thousands of spectators. With his vocal repertoire from his own song writing, Johnny Cash, John Prine, Paul Simon and many others, he will find the niche to please you all.
This concert promises to be high energy Acadian style kitchen party with singing in both English and French, lively music and step dancing. The concert will be held on Sunday, Sept. 23, 2 p.m. at Trinity United Church, 90 Spring Street, in Summerside. Admission at the door, or for advance tickets or for ticket information, call the church office at 902-436-3155 or Wendell Cameron at 902 436 8600. Admission is $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
