The Bonnyville and District Centennial Centre is pleased to announce a fantastic, family-oriented, holiday-themed concert, coming to the C2 on Sunday, December 10. An East Coast Family Christmas with the Ennis Sisters from Newfoundland will be a perfect pre-holiday get-together with friends, family, and co-workers.
An East Coast Famiy Christmas with The Ennis Sisters of Newfoundland is Sunday, December 10, 2017, 7:00pm, at the Bonnyville and District Centennial Centre.
With winter on the wind, the Ennis Sisters have announced their 8th Annual Christmas Tour. This year, the Juno award-winning trio brings their highly-acclaimed holiday show to venues across Alberta and the prairies. From their Christmas originals and holiday classics to their well-timed stories and folkloric recitations, this is a family-friendly show you won’t want to miss!
“We identify very strongly with coming from an island in the middle of the North Atlantic. There is definitely a ruggedness and a tenacity that comes with being from a place like Newfoundland,” say the Ennis Sisters.
With multiple accolades – a Juno Award, SOCAN Award, multiple East Coast Music Awards, and Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards, The Ennis Sisters, comprised of Maureen, Teresa and Karen Ennis, are world renowned, celebrated songbirds. With their buttery harmonies, and voices as powerful as the Atlantic, it’s in their bones to sing.
The Ennis Sisters were born and raised on Irish Newfoundland tunes. Their father is a traditional button accordion player, and mother grew up on the southern shore of the Avalon, surrounded by music. Throughout the Ennis Sisters’ childhood, if their parents weren’t making music, it was coming through the radio – particularly the Irish Newfoundland radio shows, which aired on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
“There was just no escaping the Irish Newfoundland, Traditional music growing up,” says Karen. “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.”
