The members appearing on Aug. 1 are Gerry Tobin on fiddle, Charlie Jordan on fiddle, Gordon Gray on fiddle, Art Hammon on flute, Tom Jordan on guitar and Hannah Potter on cello.
They will have copies of their CD available for purchase. These regional performers have played with Islay Mist Ceilidh at the Lancaster Fair, North Country Moose Festival in Canaan, Vt., Weeks State Park in Lancaster, the Colebrook Country Club and First Night in St. Johnsbury, Vt. They are the "house band" at the AMC Highland Center in Crawford Notch, appearing there numerous times throughout the year.
