P.E.I. performers join Fiddlers' Sons for another night of music
POOLES CORNER, P.E.I. —
The Egg Farmers of Prince Edward Island Close to The Ground concert series continues at Kaylee Hall, Pooles Corner Thursday, Aug. 1, at 8 p.m., as hosts Fiddlers' Sons welcome The Grace Notes with Katie McGarry as their special musical guests.
The Grace Notes formed in 2016 as the house band for the Trailside Café’s Hillsborough River Gospel Brunch series. Dressed in their Sunday best, members Nick Doneff (electric guitar), Josée Champoux (acoustic guitar) and Sam Langille (upright bass) blend old-time gospel, rhythm and blues and country styles.
Ontario native Doneff has become a staple in the P.E.I. music scene. After building a reputation as a busy sideman and multi-instrumentalist for Island favourites such as Nudie and Liam Corcoran (Two Hours Traffic), Doneff has now emerged as an independent singer and songwriter following the release of his self-titled debut album.
Langille has deep family roots in music. His parents are both Island musicians, and his aunt is renowned singer/songwriter Kelley Mooney.
Katie McGarry will be filling in on vocals for the trio's performance at Kaylee Hall. Her first album, “My Side Of Town”, was nominated for two Music P.E.I. awards. She is also the 2011 Music P.E.I. recipient of the Lynn Grishko Bursary, awarded annually to a deserving up-and-coming female singer/songwriter from P.E.I.
The Kaylee Hall is located at the intersection of routes 3 and 4 near Montague. There will be a canteen service, 50/50 draw and CDs and books available for purchase from the performers. Admission is cash at the door.
