The lyrics by Maureen Ennis from the Song ‘John William’, speak of the Irish lineage into which she and her sister, Karen, were born. Along with their sister, Teresa, the girls learned to sing around the time most people learn how to walk. While that may not be a unique thing for many people fromNewfoundland and Labrador, the level of success they have attained since then, certainly is. With a Juno award, a SOCAN award, multiple ECMA and Music NL awards and nominations, Maureen and Karen have performed in Australia, The Middle East, Europe, America and Canada, accumulating 3 gold records along the way and sharing the stage with such widely respected artists as the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Mary Black, Jann Arden and the Chieftains. The two Ennis sisters will perform their original and traditional songs for the Newmarket Folk Society in an entertaining evening of music, songs, stories and humour. You won’t want to miss this grand finale of the 2013-14 season! For more information more visit www.ennismusic.com .
