STANLEY BRIDGE – Ceilidh season is coming to the a close on P.E.I. as Tom McSwiggan and Michael Pendergast prepare for their last summer performance on Sept. 27.

Celebrating 22 years of entertaining on the North Shore, Pendergast and McSwiggan are excited to have Andy Doucette as their fiddler and all-around musician accompany them. Dancer Veronica Murray will round out the program with her lively steps.

The Thursday evening ceilidh at the Stanley Bridge Sterling Women’s Institute Hall is the longest running continuous ceilidh on the Island and sticks to a proven formula of wit, humour, song, dance and fiddling to please the crowd. Feeling less like a concert and more like a parlour show, the Stanley Bridge Ceilidhs feature traditional Irish, Scottish and Acadian tunes every night with an emphasis on local songs and folklore.

In this case, sing-alongs are a must and a few comical stories will be told.

Doors open for the final time this season at 7 and the show begins and 7:30 p.m. A 50/50 draw will take place after the half and ice cream and strawberries will be served at the break.

Stanley Bridge Sterling Women’s Institute Hall is located at 4897 St. Mary’s Road, Stanley Bridge.
