The Ross Family Ceilidh returns this month with performances running in Charlottetown and Clinton. 

Featuring Stephanie Ross (vocals, guitar, bodhran, percussion, dance), Danielle Ross (vocals, fiddle, dance); and Johnny Ross (piano), this long-running show has new content and an optional pre-show dinner at the Clinton Hills location this season. 

Celebrating PEI’s traditional and contemporary roots music; bolstered by fiddle and stepdancing, the group’s originality and entertaining, yet heartfelt delivery, connects with audiences.

Carefully crafted arrangements help make the unearthed traditional material their own, while preserving its core keeps the music as pure as when their Celtic and Acadian forebears played it years ago. The show combines modern content with original songs, dancing and more. 

With performances scarce during the pandemic, the group found that the downtime presented them with an opportunity to build on over fifteen years of shows and come back stronger. They restudied their craft and created new material in preparing their 2023 concerts.

Shows will take place every Tuesday from June 6–October 17 at The Guild in Charlottetown. 

The Clinton Hills dates include Wednesdays in June (14, 21, 28), and select Mondays and Wednesdays in July (3, 12, 17, 19, 24, 26, 31), August (2, 7, 9, 14, 16, 21, 23, 30), and September (6, 11, 20).
