THE ENNIS SISTERS Christmas Tour - 7:30 p.m.
Christmas Tour
Price: $32 plus hst & fees, youth 16 & under $16 plus hst & fees

 

Back at Festival Hall by popular demand, the Ennis sisters are world renowned, celebrated songbirds.  We're so thrilled to have their highly acclaimed Christmas show, treating us to an evening of beautiful music, with their backup group, entertaining stories and comedy, and the true down east Christmas spirit.

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.”
