PEI singer-songwriter Bonnie LeClair has the honour of being the opening act for the Greenwich Village Folk Festival (GVFF) on September 6.

“Being the opening performer for the night is great, though, I’d feel honoured to be anywhere in the lineup at all for this long-running and revered festival,” says LeClair, one of two Islanders in the show.

Paul Broadbent, a rock and folk singer-songwriter from Charlottetown, will also be featured in the concert which will be broadcast on the Greenwich Village Folk Festival Facebook page, from 8-10 pm ADT.

The Islanders will join a lineup that includes Peter Yarrow, Eliza Gilkyson, Rod MacDonald, Robin Batteau, Diana Jones, Carolann Solebello, Pierce Pettis, and Aztec 2.0.

The GVFF began in 1987 with live concerts at the Washington Square Church in Greenwich Village and had an annual concert through 1994. These online concerts are their first official events since that time. Watch live at GVFF2020 on Facebook.
