FREDDIE & SHEILA PELLETIER
Thursday, April 1st @ 7:30pm
Join Freddie and Sheila Pelletier for a fun and humorous acoustic evening of songs from the past with outstanding guitar picking and vocals.
Freddie, on lead acoustic and electric guitar and vocals, emulates the work of guitar greats like Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed and others playing classic country, 60's rock and much more. Sheila, lead vocals and rhythm guitar, sings a mix of classic country, folk, 60's/70's rock and yodels. They also do a splash of original material, humorous songs and Freddie clogs while playing the guitar. They will tell you the goal of their shows is simple ... to sing and play songs you might remember and (hopefully) love, have some laughs and help you forget about the troubles of life for a couple of hours!
Freddie has played music professionally since 1969. He played guitar for several stars of the day, most notably, Ian Tyson and fiddler, Al Cherney, who was a regular on the Tommy Hunter Show. Locally, his band The Northwest Rebellion was a staple at local events and he was employed by Brian Sklar's country music tv show Number One West which aired nationally for six years, filmed right in Prince Albert. In 2016 he was awarded the SCMA's Legend and Legacy award. Freddie and Sheila, who live near Birch Hills, have been performing together for 28 years. Together they created the Pelletier Guitar and Music Camp that operated for over a decade. They have spent 20 years touring the sunny southern USA performing in Texas, Arizona and California in the winter months. Well ... except this winter! When they’re home (and there's no pandemics happening!) they perform across western Canada for any occasion from community theatres, arts councils, festivals to fundraisers and private events.
Freddie and Sheila are very excited to be at the beautiful E.A. Rawlinson Centre for the Arts again and applaud the wonderful staff for always supporting SK artists, especially during the pandemic.
