While in/on/at Prince Edward Island, my host takes me to a gathering called a "ceilidh." At first, I'm more interested in the spelling than the event itself.

"So, it's kinda like Kylie as in Kylie Minogue," I say, "except with an 'a' sound instead of an 'i' sound."

On the way there, I open my mind to the possibility that it might not be as hokey as I anticipate. This is popular entertainment in this town, so who knows? I might be surprised, even pleasantly so.

We arrive, and I could swear I'm at a "mixer" circa 1978.
