Catherine MacLellan has become one of Canada’s finest and favourite singer-songwriters on her own merits. She’s kept away from the media circus and celebrity scene, preferring to live at home in rural P.E.I. She’s worked diligently at her craft, receiving a Juno Award and multiple East Coast Music Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards, and Music PEI Awards.
After achieving her own success as a musician MacLellan has embraced being the daughter of Gene MacLellan as she tours celebrating and promoting her father’s musical legacy with her album and theatre show “If It’s Alright With You- The Songs of Gene MacLellan. The album contains 13 of her father’s most famous compositions, songs that propelled him to fame nearly 50 years ago and remain the gold standard for Canadian song writing. The theatre show is filled with stories from her father’s life, from surprising revelations to intimate descriptions of their time together. It features the selections from the album, as well as lesser-known and even unreleased songs she’s discovered in her family archives.
