Three Questions

✨3 Questions with Brian Ellis!✨

▶️1.How is your Summer going Brian?

“We ( The Ellis Family Band ) are having a great summer. Playing a number of shows on PEI and so far the shows we have performed have been amazing with great interactive crowds”

▶️2.What’s the best part about playing music with your family?

“After almost 50 years of playing music, the 4 brothers (Brian, Rick, Steve & Dave Ellis and 5th member Greg MacDonald) absolutely love playing music as much now as we ever have. Playing music together has given us a lot of fun and enjoyment for all these years. Our fans are the ones who keep the spark and love of playing music ongoing for us. They have and still are supporting us and our music and we so much appreciate that”.

▶️3.Have you played with Fiddlers’ Sons before?

“Eddy Quinn and Fiddlers’ Sons are great friends of ours and they all are wonderful musicians, singers, storytellers and an absolute pleasure to listen to, but especially to share a stage and show with. We have had the pleasure to do just that on numerous occasions and are looking very forward to sharing the stage with them once again in our beautiful hometown and at Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside on Wednesday August 17th 2022!”

Stirring the Pot

Contempoary roots band Jabbour blends Cajun music with classic roots, Celtic, and old-time styles. The swinging rhythm and bilingual lyrics performed by these talented high-energy musicians will have your toes tapping at the Victoria Playhouse Monday August 8.

Jabbour

“This unique combo of Quebecois chansonnier Guillaume Jabbour, Durham County Poets bassist Carl Rufh, east coast collaborator Bill Collier and Bill Gossage has grown more cohesive with time. Now they’ve settled into a more mature sound that blends Cajun music with the classic roots stylings of acts like The Band and Neil Young – with nods to Celtic and old-time music.”

Singing Betty’s Praises

Have you heard what everyone is saying about Betty’s Song yet? The reviews are in and we are very excited about what the audience has to say!

“Betty’s Song was brilliant – and it’s all true! The pace was lovely. So funny and so sad – and that is what a great storyteller/songwriter can do! I intend to tell everyone I know.”

“First time at the Mack, enjoyed Betty’s Song very much. Excellent performance by Ashley Condon! Planning on seeing other shows in the future🙂

“We loved every minute of this production. Not only is Ashley a great songwriter/singer, she is a very talented storyteller.”

“Wonderful show! Both belly laughed and shed a few tears. Ashley took us on a wonderful life journey that many could see and feel commonalities in our own lived experience. Great job!!”

“We loved Betty’s Song. We are big fans of Ms. Condon’s music and were totally drawn into her story … brought us to tears at times and made us laugh as well. Great staff at The Mack too. No complaints … keep up the good work at this lovely venue! We may be back for the Hey Viola show.”

“This was an amazing play, and we really enjoy the setup with tables instead of rows of seats. It makes for an intimate setting and we try to catch a performance whenever we are in town.”

“I really enjoyed Betty’s Song at The Mack! The intimate table-style setting was perfect for this show.”

“Betty’s Song is a fabulous show!”

“We love attending events at the Mack. This one was special. Ashley’s performance and material was moving, funny, heart warming and home grown. What could be better? I recommend it to everyone and will!”

“Ashley Condon is an amazing entertainer! Her performance was excellent. Very touching but done in such a way that you didn’t get caught into a lot of emotion! She has the ability to stir up deep feedings! Loved her show.”

“Betty’s Song was delivered as if you are a part of a family listening to the family stories from an eccentric and zealous ‘aunt’. Funny, energetic, anything could happen stories. Delivered by a very talented woman.”

Make sure to get your tickets for Betty’s Song this summer at the Charlottetown Festival!
