Kelley Mooney is releasing her first Christmas record, Caroling. The recording features a mix of Kelleyâ€™s favorite Christmas songs, a few contemporary ones, and a few originalsâ€”particularly, â€śChristmas in the Country.â€ť This song gives you a complete picture of Christmas at the Mooney houseâ€”its food, music and love.
The CD launch will take place on November 4 at 7 pm at Trinity United Church, 220 Richmond Street, Charlottetown. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Kelley will be joined by special guests Richard Wood, Atlantic String Machine, Jon Matthews and others.
Admission to the launch is a donation of food items for the food bank, (or a cash donation), a friend and a smile. Kelley says that although many of us are so very fortunate to have loved ones around us to share a big, beautiful Christmas dinner with, some arenâ€™t so lucky. Rather than paying to get in to this concert, people are encouraged to use that money for a bag of food (or a cash donation) for the Food Bank. A truck will be at the front of the church to receive the donation.
Island singer-songwriter Kelley Mooney released Tomorrow in 2011. It won the 2012 Music PEI Country Recording of the Year. She followed that recording with Still, a collection of gospel-inspirational songs.
