Catherine MacLellan

Catherine MacLellan is one of Canadian folk music’s true gems, albeit not a hidden one, no matter her penchant for quiet country nights. Though the acclaim for her work was already significant, it reached new levels when she took home a Juno Award in 2015 for her standout album, The Raven’s Sun. From Europe, where she was touring at the time of the awards ceremony, she tweeted a picture of her smiling face alongside earnest words of gratitude. And then she went to soundcheck, because playing songs is, after all, what she’s here to do.


Catherine MacLellan is a musician’s musician, respected by her peers since releasing Dark Dream Midnight, her first solo album, in 2004. And no wonder; from the beginning her talent was apparent, as was her dedication to the craft of songwriting and the conviction that continues to guide her creativity and her career. Six albums and countless awards later, it’s that commitment that remains at the heart of her work. And it’s evident to fans and industry alike.


Initially inspired by her late father, the esteemed songwriter Gene MacLellan (Snowbird, Put your Hand in the Hand), Catherine picked up a guitar in high school and was soon playing gigs around Prince Edward Island, her beloved home. After releasing her first two albums independently, she was signed by the influential folk music label True North Records in 2006. Catherine has since toured nationally and internationally, playing stages big and small from Austin to Italy, but always returning home.


In the summer of 2017, Catherine debuted her first musical theatre show, If It’s Alright With You, a collection of stories from her father’s life alongside stirring renditions of his music. The show was a hit, selling out many nights during its three-month run in Charlottetown, PEI while garnering Catherine a new level of respect once again. Not only is she an accomplished songwriter with a uniquely beautiful voice, she also has the ability to tell stories in such a way so as to leave an audience charmed and captivated, laughing and weeping in turns.


The show returned to Charlottetown in summer 2018 but that’s not all Catherine has on her agenda this year; she’s also releasing an NFB documentary on the subject of her relationship with her father and the lasting effects of suicide, directed by Millefiore Clarkes and recording her forthcoming album, to be produced and recorded in her home studio in rural PEI. Aside from that, you can find her at the kitchen table, surrounded by the quiet country night, the strum of her guitar reward enough.
