Catherine MacLellan


catherine-maclellan[From Wikipedia] Catherine MacLellan is a Canadian folk singer-songwriter, currently based in Prince Edward Island. The daughter of Canadian songwriter Gene MacLellan, she was born and raised in Summerside, Prince Edward Island.
Before beginning her solo recording career, she sang with The New Drifts, a four piece band featuring Island musicians James Phillips (guitar, mandolin), Stéphane Bouchard (bass) and Dave Gould (drums & percussion). She spent time working at the box office of Summerside’s Harbourfront Jubilee Theatre, a 527-seat theatre where she made her soft seat début as a solo performer.
MacLellan released two albums, 2004’s Dark Dream Midnight and 2006’s Church Bell Blues, independently before signing to True North Records, which rereleased Church Bell Blues in 2007. She followed up with Water in the Ground in 2009; Dark Dream Midnight was included as a bonus disc with physical copies of that album. She toured Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom throughout 2009 to support the album, including performances on CBC Radio’s Canada Live and The Vinyl Cafe. Her album Silhouette was released by True North Records in July 2011.
She has also participated in two collaborative “Canadian Songbook” tours: in 2008 with Murray McLauchlan, Stephen Fearing and Paul Quarrington, and in 2009 with McLauchlan, Barney Bentall and Nathan Rogers.
In November 2009, she recorded a new song, “Singing Sands”, for CBC Radio 2’s Great Canadian Song Quest.
She was formerly married to singer-songwriter Al Tuck, with whom she has a daughter, Isabel.
