Catherine MacLellan show booked for another summer
PEI Brewing Company has announced that Catherine MacLellan will bring her show If It’s Alright With You—The Life and Music Of My Father, Gene MacLellan back to the PEI Brewing Company Culinary Event Space every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during July, August and September 2018.
In 1970 PEI songwriter Gene MacLellan rocketed to fame when his song “Snowbird” became a worldwide smash for Anne Murray. That was followed quickly by “Put Your Hand in the Hand,” an even bigger hit for Ocean.
But at the height of his success, he turned his back on the temptations of fame, and his life became a mystery for his many fans. Now, his daughter, JUNO Award-winning singer/songwriter Catherine MacLellan, is telling her father’s story, in her words and his songs. You’ll hear his music, plus rare and even unreleased songs chosen by Catherine, in a personal and powerful performance.
“We are thrilled to be working with Catherine again in 2018 and on bringing this show back to the PEI Brewing Company Event Space,” said Jeff Squires, President of the PEI Brewing Company. “If It’s Alright With You is a must-see performance, noted by the sold-out 2017 season, for both the visitors to Prince Edward Island and our residents in the Summer of 2018.”
“I’m so excited to be returning to the PEI Brewing Company this summer,” said Catherine MacLellan. “I’ve spent the last few months working on how to make this show even better and to tell even more of Dad’s story. There will be new songs, arrangements and stories—I can’t wait to share them with everyone!”
Join her in a celebration of Gene MacLellan, full of emotional moments, laugh-out-loud stories and above all, the hand-clapping hits and tender ballads of this Canadian songwriting legend.
Advance tickets are available now at peibrewingcompany.com and at the PEI Brewing Company, 96 Kensington Road, Charlottetown.
