The Lake Country Performing Arts Society presents its annual Creekside Ceilidh this Saturday at the Creekside Theatre.

The Cats and the Fiddle will be on stage again by popular demand with their lively, foot stomping fiddle music … just back from Ireland, they are excited to present some new and familiar music with the twin fiddles, great harmony and stories of their travels.

Chloe, Kyle & Co.  are a talented ‘family’ group … two award-winning kids, now 13 and 11, great fiddlers who enhance their performance by playing several different instruments and styles, you will be amazed.  Mom on piano and Dad on drums are there to support these very talented kids.

Arran Campbell Memorial Youth Pipe Band  under the direction of Pipe Major Don MacLeod, these young pipers and drummers practise weekly in Vernon and attend many gatherings and parades throughout the year, they are excited to be returning to the Creekside Theatre again.

Okanagan School of Irish Dance  Expect wonderful colour, flare and precision from this group of enthusiastic Irish dancers.  They will perform in soft and hard shoe routines inspired by ‘Riverdance’ and amaze their audience by their high energy and skills.

Argyll Highland Dancers under the direction of Janet Lis these girls will perform traditional Highland dances, extremely difficult steps requiring strength and agility, poise and grace.  Their main focus is competition while creating great co-ordination and muscle development.

Vernon Scottish Country dancers will reveal the gentler side of dancing which requires concentration on the music and the set … great workout for mind and body.  They meet in Vernon for a sociable gathering on Tuesday nights, no pressure, come and try it.

The show gets underway October 1 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 each, $10 for ages 10 and under or buy a group of four tickets for $70.
