A celebration of traditional music connecting Prince Edward Island & Cape Breton Island.

About this event

Let's have a ceilidh!

A celebration of music connecting traditional music from Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton Island! What can you expect? An evening of music complete with stories, fiddling, song and of course, the best step dancing on red soil you-ever-did-see!

Join the Chaisson Trio (Kevin Chaisson, Rannie MacLellan, Louise Chaisson-MacKinnon), champion step dancer, Taylor MacBeath and host, Marsha Weeks for a Prince Edward Island summer must-do, a PEI Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee).

Kevin Chaisson, a highly-coveted piano player from Bear River, PEI, has deep roots in traditional music on Prince Edward Island. The Chaisson family have been widely acclaimed as being influential in ensuring that traditional music is passed on to future generations of Prince Edward Island.

Our fiddler, Rannie MacLellan is from Margaree, Cape Breton (in nearby Nova Scotia). MacLellan’s signature rhythmic strathspeys and lively reels are a highlight of the ceilidh, showcasing the Cape Breton style of fiddling inspired by various fiddlers like the late Jerry Holland, a dear friend of MacLellan’s.

Singer, Louise Chaisson-MacKinnon has a soulful voice and a large repertoire of lively maritime songs to share from all our favourites like Anne Murray, Stan Rogers and The Rankins, to name a few.

Step Dancer Maestro, Taylor MacBeath - you'll have to see it to believe it! Her steps are sharp, her signature moves are champion and her energy is infectious!

Proud Islander, Host, and just-for-fun fiddler, Marsha Weeks will welcome you all with a good dose of PEI hospitality and showcase years of musical talent on stage.

The bespoke venue, Stanley Bridge Historic Women's Insititute Hall is the icing on the cake honouring the history of Prince Edward Island with beautiful accoustics, an initmate setting and brings you back to a time when community halls were the centre of social events. Don't forget a little cash for the Women's Insitute famous 50/50 draw and their equally famous intermission ice-cream treats!
