February 3
Beaconsfield Carriage House

Janet McGarry and Wildwood, a favourite PEI band, will be featured at a winter bluegrass concert on February 3 at 2 pm at Beaconsfield Carriage House, 2 Kent Street, Charlottetown.

Wildwood is comprised of Janet McGarry on mandolin and vocals, Serge Bernard on guitar, banjo, mandolin and harmony vocals, Allen Boland on guitar and vocals, Denise MacLeod on fiddle and vocals, and Gail Mullen on upright bass and vocals. Just this past October, they picked up the Award for Gospel Performance of the Year at the Eastern Canadian Bluegrass Awards.

Bluegrass Revival band has performed in all Atlantic provinces, playing at festivals, church services, fundraising concerts and house parties. Band members for this show  include Peter LeMoine on banjo and vocals, Peter Richards on guitar, Cherie LeMoine on vocals, David Clarke on Dobro and vocals, Ann Hay on bass and Shirley Smedley Jay on mandolin and vocals.

This is the first concert in a winter/spring series to raise money for the 34th Annual P.E.I. Bluegrass & Old Time Music Festival being held July 5 to 7 at their new festival location, Dundas Fair Grounds, King County, PEI. This year’s festival features  bands from Canada and the US including headline act, The Clay Hess Band. Clay Hess is probably best known as guitarist with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder although his career has taken him through many of the top groups in the genre. Other acts will be announced in the coming months.

Admission for the concert is at the door with all proceeds going to the P.E.I. Bluegrass & Old Time Music Society. Doors will open at 1 pm for you to pick a good seat. Please note that the concert hall is at ground level and accessible with a wheelchair ramp and lots of parking.
