Recognized by his peers as one of Canada’s best performing songwriters, Lennie Gallant has released thirteen albums (ten in English and three in French) of original songs which have won him a host of awards and nominations from the JUNOs, Les Prix Eloizes, and The East Coast Music Awards, including 2017 ECMA Entertainer of the Year. His double CD of the 22 songs from his multimedia-hit production, ‘Searching For Abegweit’, which ran for 173 shows, also won him an ECMA. He was named Canadian Folk Artist of The Year for 2016 and his song Peter’s Dream was voted one of the Top Ten East Coast Songs of All Time and was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

A recipient of the Order of Canada, Lennie is an international touring artist, who has performed all over the continent, in Europe, for the troops in Afghanistan, and at the XXI Winter Olympics. He has toured with Symphony Nova Scotia, Symphony New Brunswick, and with Symphony Prince Edward Island
Catherine MacLellan, one of Canadian folk music’s true gems, returns with her anticipated seventh album, ‘Coyote’ This self-produced release is a travelogue through heartbreak, loss and the joy of life. The album contains 14 songs that are reflective, poignant and hopeful. They were all recorded and produced by Catherine at her home studio in Prince Edward Island. 

‘Coyote’ adds some of that traditional East Coast instrumentation of accordions, fiddles and bouzouki. The songs touch on themes of change, vulnerability, and letting yourself be seen; the good, the bad, the pretty, and the ugly.

Though the acclaim for Catherine’s own work was already significant, it reached new levels when she took home a Juno Award in 2015 for her standout album, ‘The Raven’s Sun’. This was an intimate look into her musical work with long-time collaborator, Chris Gauthier.  Catherine has also been recognized with multiple East Coast Music Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards, and Music PEI Awards.
