TD Neil Murray Stage Youth Performances

Date: Sunday August 11th

Time: 3:00 PM - 3:25 PM

Maia McKeown & Luke Mercer

At the ripe ages of ten years old, Luke Mercer and Maia Mckeown have a developed a love of music since they were old enough to crawl. With Luke playing accordion and guitar, and Maia playing fiddle and singing, both young musicians are already well-known musicians in the local community and have been playing together since first meeting through their joint participation at Young Folk at the Hall and the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival.

With Luke playing with the St. Pat’s Dancers and a familiar face at traditional music sessions, concerts and festivals across the province, and Maia performing with the CALOS Youth Orchestra, STEP Fiddlers and the Shallaway Youth Choir, their combined musical talents put a whole new twist on the traditional Newfoundland music scene.
