The Ennis Sisters
Born and raised in a musical Newfoundland family, the Ennis Sisters (Maureen, Teresa and Karen) grew up listening to Irish Newfoundland radio shows when their parents werent making music of their own. The Ennis Sisters returned to their roots on their album Stages, after having picked up numerous accolades for a string of eight albums from 1997-2012, including a JUNO, a SOCAN Award, and multiple East Coast Music Awards. As Maureen says in explaining how their music and homeland come together in shaping their identity, there is definitely a ruggedness and a tenacity that comes with being from a place like Newfoundland. Settle back and let their buttery, uplifting harmonies transport you to the Rock.
