PEI Fiddler Roy Johnstone Performing at Worcester Hibernian Hall on October 17

Fiddle master Roy Johnston and guitarist Steve Sharrett are performing an afternoon concert at the Hibernian Cultural Center in Worcester this Sunday, October 17, at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets are $15 and children under 12 are admitted free.
Considered one of Prince Edward Island's great fiddlers, Johnstone has traveled around the world playing his distinct style of fiddling that is rooted in PEI and the Canadian Maritimes.  Sharratt is considered one of PEI's finest guitarists.  Originally from Ontario, he has lived on PEI since 1980.

After the performance, a music session is taking place, so local musicians are invited to bring their instruments.

The Hibernian Cultural Center is run by the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Division 36, and is a year-round center for Irish music, dance, lectures and related cultural activities.
