There will be a rocking Ceilidh on the Canal tonight in St. Peter’s with songs and tunes from Newfoundland, Isle of Man, and just down the road. Roger Stone comes from Richmond County but is known far and wide for his songwriting and strong guitar and banjo playing. An original member of beloved Cape Breton band Brakin’ Tradition, and currently performing with East Coast institution McGinty, Roger knows how to bring a good time to the ceilidh. As do the crew from Isle of Man, Mec Lir. A new group formed last year, their upbeat presence brings fun pop sounding backing to lightening fast reels and jigs. Aaron Collis and Emilia Bartellas play dance music from all over Newfoundland on accordion and fiddle. Maybe they’ll have some tunes in common with Allie Mombourquette, a young fiddler from the L’Ardoise area. Sounds just about right for a ceilidh.

Hosted by Village on the Canal Association
