The Bonnyville and District Centennial Centre, along with Country99, are pleased to announce a fantastic, family-oriented concert coming to the C2 on Saturday, April 25, 2020. The Ennis Sisters, a trio from St. John’s, Newfoundland, will be a fully-enjoyable get-together for friends and family.
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.
“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. “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.”
The Ennis Sisters conjure legacy with their latest album, Keeping Time. As a collection of 10 songs, Keeping Time honours and preserves our most precious gift – time, and what we decide to do with it.
