Ashley MacIsaac & Friends at GAMS Benefit Concert

Cape Breton’s favorite musicians are coming together to put on a magnificent show in Cheticamp!

Ashley MacIsaac is excited to be a part of the GAMS benefit concert on Sunday, July 24th with Chris Babineau and Maybelle Chisholm McQueen accompanying him. Cyril MacPhee, the Colin Grant Band, and a few surprises are sure to keep everyone entertained all evening.

With a number of other fun activities alongside the music, such as touch-tank and face-painting for the kids, raffles, and an auction for an event poster signed by the musicians, the event promises a fun-filled afternoon for the whole family. The show will wind down with a good old-fashioned kitchen party. Local step-dancers and musicians will light up the stage and have the whole audience dancing in their seats!

Due to popular demand, the event will now have a bar! There will be lots of fun and educational activities to keep the kids happy, so don’t be afraid to bring the whole family.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the opening of a Marine Centre in Inverness County, Cape Breton, which will act as a venue for education, research, and community-building around the Gulf of St. Lawrence and its fishery. Don’t miss this opportunity to have a great time and help a good cause!

The concert will take place Sunday, July 24th at 3:00pm at the Cabot Trail Arena in Cheticamp, NS. Tickets are $20 (except $10 for kids 12 and under, and free for kids 5 and under).
