THE EASTERN BELLES are PEI’s own Catherine MacLellan, Ashley Condon and Meaghan Blanchard. “The Island” (as it is affectionately known) is where these three award-winning songwriters have chosen to live and create while pursuing their musical careers and is where the idea was first formed to tour together as “The Eastern Belles”. They are three distinctly stunning voices that, alone, stand powerfully and then come together in some of the sweetest harmonies you have ever heard. Sharing a love for old country, folk and Americana music, this collaboration was a natural fit.
All three have toured extensively as individual solo acts, developing a hefty following and have contributed to putting little PEI on the big musical map. When The Eastern Belles come together to sing and write songs, there’s a magic that cannot be denied. Some might call it a super group, but these down home gals call it fun and an exciting way to get MORE music to wider audiences.
When you come to an Eastern Belles Show, you will be treated to an evening of both solo and trio performances interwoven with stories and playful banter. Growing up on an Island of 134,000 people begets a fishing boat load of tales to tell. It is roots music at its best delivered in an intimate setting by three of the finest singer-songwriters that Eastern Canada has to offer.
