Ennis Sisters return to Perth
With the holiday season on its way, Newfoundland’s Ennis Sisters have announced their 9th Annual Christmas Tour. This year, the Juno award-winning trio will once again bring their highly-acclaimed show to select venues across Canada, including a stop in Perth on Friday December 7th.
The sisters, Maureen, Karen and Teresa, deliver one of the finest family Christmas shows in the country.
The trio combine original songs, holiday classics, humorous recitations and Irish step-dancing to create an evening that’s sure to ignite the true holiday spirit. While their tightly-woven harmonies produce a sound that only siblings can achieve, the multi-award winning sisters move audiences to tears with their hilarious banter and poignant seasonal sentiments.
The Ennis Sisters were born and raised on Irish Newfoundland tunes. Throughout their childhood, if their parents weren’t making music, it was coming through the radio – particularly the Irish radio shows which aired on Saturday and Sunday mornings. There was no escaping the traditional music all around them.
“When we first began singing for an audience, these were the songs we sang. It’s what came easiest and most natural, and still does,” says Karen.
Some say it’s in their bones to sing, that their beautiful harmonies and powerful voices reflect the very strength of the Atlantic itself.
“That’s all we knew growing up,” says Maureen. “Newfoundland is a very unique province and because of this, we have a different perspective of our surroundings.”
With multiple accolades – a Juno Award, SOCAN Award, multiple East Coast Music Awards and Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards — Newfoundland's The Ennis Sisters are world-renowned performers. Their Annual Christmas show features stunning sibling harmonies, recitations, lively step dancing and playful humour. While Maureen is a guitarist, Karen plays the tin whistle and flute, while Teresa plays the bodhran.
Their Christmas tour has been an annual event for the sisters since their album “Christmas on Ennis Road” landed them their own Christmas special on CBC television.
A portion of the proceeds from the Perth show will go towards Stewart Park Festival, a free community festival held each July in Perth.
“It's a great feeling knowing we're helping to make a difference to communities across the province, especially this time of year,” said Karen Ennis. “It's always amazing to see people come together in the true spirit of Christmas.”
The Ennis Sisters Christmas show will take place in Perth on December 7th in the Mason Theatre at Perth Collegiate, 43 Victoria St.
The show begins at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $30 and available at www.ticketsplease.ca, the Visitor Centre at the Perth Museum or by phoning 613-485-6434.
A wonderful way to greet the holiday season! This show has become a Christmas tradition you won’t want to miss!
