Fall shows, documentary screenings & upcoming record

Happy Monday!
Well it’s been another beautiful summer here in PEI and I’ve been lucky enough to be here for most of it. That is thanks to the second summer run of my show If It’s Alright With You – the songs and stories of Gene MacLellan. There are now just 6 shows left and I’ll be sad to tuck it away for the time being. I will be touring that show in the Maritimes in the Spring of 2019 and that may be the end of it, I’m not sure!
If It’s Alright With You – The Songs of Gene MacLellan

Upcoming Album Winter 2019
I’ve been slowly working away on my next record of original songs and I can’t wait to share these new songs with you all!
It’s been challenging to find time to finish it, but we’re getting close now! Look for it mid-winter 2019 with shows in support of the album in Canada and Europe.

The Song and the Sorrow

Also on my plate this fall is the release of the documentary I’ve been a part of with Island director Millefiore Clarkes, a production with the NFB. It’s called the Song and the Sorrow and takes a closer look at my relationship with my father and the lasting effects of suicide. It’s a little vulnerable for me as it is quite an intimate look into my life and heart, but I’m really proud of it, and excited to share it finally after three years of work. I hope that it helps to open up ore dialogue and conversations on mental health and the great need to remove the stigma of mental illness so we can all heal and find help for ourselves and those around us.
It will be premiering in Halifax this weekend for FIN Atlantic International Film Fest , and then off to Lunenburg, Toronto, Charlottetown and Summerside! I’ll post more about that soon.

If you’re around PEI this month, I’d love to see you at one of the following shows:

Monday September 10: If It’s Alright With You / Charlottetown PEI / PEI Brewing Company
Tuesday September 11: If It’s Alright With You / Charlottetown PEI / PEI Brewing Company

Monday September 17: If It’s Alright With You / Charlottetown PEI / PEI Brewing Company
Tuesday September 18: If It’s Alright With You / Charlottetown PEI / PEI Brewing Company
Wednesday September 19: Closing Night If It’s Alright With You / Charlottetown PEI / PEI Brewing Company

Thanks as always for your continued support, and hope to see you round the bend!
Cheers,
Catherine

  1. Really looking forward to October when I can finally purchase a copy of The Song and the Sorrow from NFB. I’ve had a copy of Millefiore Clarkes ‘Island Green’ for a couple of years. She is very good. Gene MacLellan’s music was always there when I was a kid ❤️. I want to thank you for pulling this treasure together.

  2. Hi there,

    Will you be in Ottawa, Ontario in the future as I would love to see your show or The Song and The Sorrow. I grew up listening to you father’s songs and have fond memories of that time.

  3. Dear Catherine, just came out of the Toronto screening of The Song and the Sorrow. It was so nice to see you there and to bask this into your positive radiant energy. Thank you for your touching rendition of Snowbird. I look forward to seeing you in Ontario sometime when you tour for your upcoming album! By the way, I’d be happy to have a coffee with you if you need to kill some time while in Toronto…Blessings on your journey.
