Double header at Harbourfront Theatre
Island favourites The Ellis Family Band and Fiddlers’ Sons return for their annual double header at Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside this August 15.
“You can’t let a summer go by without seeing The Ellis Family Band and Fiddlers’ Sons perform,” says Kieran Keller. “Is it really a PEI summer without them?”
Comprised of brothers Rick, Brian, Steve and Dave Ellis and Greg MacDonald, The Ellis Family Band has been a household name in PEI since the 1970’s, producing such hits as Summer Nights, Why am I Still Crying, their #1 Thank You For Being My Friend, and arguably their most popular song, Mother of Mine.
Fiddlers’ Sons features Eddy Quinn on lead vocals, John B. Webster on guitar, fiddler Courtney Hogan-Chandler, and Keelin Wedge on fiddle, vocals, guitar and bass. Since 1997, the group has released several recordings, including the popular All the Way to Cardigan and won numerous PEI Music Awards for their signature Celtic and roots traditional sound.
This will be the third year these two groups will perform together at Harbourfront Theatre. The show starts at 8 pm on August 15. To learn more, visit harbourfronttheatre.com or call their Box Office at 902-888-2500.
