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!”

The Ellis Family Band, comprised of brothers Rick, Brian, Steve and Dave Ellis and Greg MacDonald, has been a household name across PEI since the 1970′s. In 1983 they set out to Nashville to record their first single, Easy to Love, an instant hit across Canada, leading to a Juno nomination for Top Country Group. Over the next four years they toured extensively and recorded two more albums in Nashville. They had a #1 song, Thank You For Being My Friend, and top ten hits with fan favourites like Summer Nights, Why Am I Still Crying, and arguably their most popular song, Mother of Mine.

Fiddlers’ Sons is currently comprised of Eddy Quinn on lead vocals, John B. Webster on guitar and Keelin Wedge on fiddle, vocals, guitar and bass. Since its inception in 1997 (along with original member, the late Garth Matthews), 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. They currently host the popular Close to the Ground Concert Series at the Kaylee Hall in Poole’s Corner.

An evening of great music, lots of memories and a few surprises are in store, and the celebration will continue after the show at a reception in the theatre lobby.
