The Life and Music Of My Father, Gene MacLellan

Catherine MacLellan in the 2017 production of If It’s Alright With You (photo: pixbylorne)Catherine MacLellan will be bringing 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.

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 for the first time, his daughter, JUNO Award-winning singer-songwriter Catherine MacLellan, will tell her father’s story, in her words and his songs. You’ll hear his beloved music, plus rare and even unreleased songs chosen by Catherine in a personal and powerful performance.

“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!”

As well as new stories and songs, Catherine has added two new members to the band—Matt Bridges on drums and Nova Scotia’s Kim Dunn on keys. “This is an all star band, I think my father would be thrilled to hear his music played this way, honouring the original era but also taking it into contemporary times.”

Join her in a celebration of Gene MacLellan,—the stories and above all, the hits of this Canadian songwriting legend. 

Advance tickets are available now at peibrewingcompany.com and at the PEI Brewing Company, 96 Kensington Road, Charlottetown.
