Catherine MacLellan & PEI Brewing Company Present “If It’s Alright With You – The Life and Music of My Father – Gene MacLellan” at the PEI Brewing Company Summer 2017
CHARLOTTETOWN (February 23rd, 2017) – PEI Brewing Company announced today that Catherine MacLellan will be bringing her brand-new show If It’s Alright With You – The Life and Music Of My Father, Gene MacLellan to the PEI Brewing Company Culinary Event Space every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during July, August and September, 2017.
In 1970 P.E.I. songwriter Gene MacLellan rocketed to fame when his song Snowbird became a worldwide smash for Anne Murray. That was followed quickly by Put Your Hand in the Hand, an even bigger hit for Ocean.
But at the height of his success, he turned his back on the temptations of fame, and his life became a mystery for his many fans. Now for the first time, his daughter, Juno Award-winning singer/songwriter Catherine MacLellan, will tell her father’s story, in her words and his songs. You’ll hear his beloved music, plus rare and even unreleased songs chosen by Catherine in a personal and powerful performance.
“We are thrilled to be working with Catherine on bringing this show to the PEI Brewing Company Event Space,” said Jeff Squires, President of the PEI Brewing Company. “The life and music of Gene MacLellan will be a must-see performance for both the visitor to Prince Edward Island and our residents in the Summer of 2017. A musical walk-through of PEI music culture – this show will be a wonderful addition to the Summer events calendar.”
“It’s been a long time coming,” said Catherine MacLellan. “I’ve been thinking about doing a show on my father’s life and music for many years and I’m so excited to have this opportunity at the PEI Brewing Company. It’s going to be a great summer!”
Join her in a celebration of Gene MacLellan, full of emotional moments, laugh-out-loud stories and above all, the hand-clapping hits and tender ballads of this Canadian songwriting legend.
Advance tickets are available now at PEIBREWINGCOMPANY.COM and at the PEI Brewing Company (96 Kensington Road, Charlottetown).
