TOUR NEWS: The Ennis Sisters & Dave Gunning February/March 2018 tour

A transatlantic co-headline UK tour from two of the biggest names from the culture-rich maritime province of Canada.


The Ennis Sisters have grown up and gone through a number of phases and musical explorations together. Their latest album, Stages, is a return to their roots – singing contemporary folk songs with a traditional Irish Newfoundland twist. The trio are excited to be heading to the UK in Feb / March 2018 with fellow award winning Canadian Dave Gunning. With this double bill you can expect an entertaining evening of the best of East Coast Canadian Folk.

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.

Dave Gunning’s recording career is now approaching full two decades in length (his debut album, Lost Tracks, came out in 1996). Along with richly deserved peer respect, he has also earned a shelf full of music industry awards. That tally now stands at eight East Coast Music Awards and two Canadian Folk Music Awards, plus a 2012 Juno Award nomination in the Roots & Traditional Solo Album of the Year category.

His impressive songwriting skill has also been internationally recognised, with earlier tunes
scoring victories and high placing in some major international songwriting competitions.
