TD Main Stage Sunday Afternoon

Date: Sunday August 11th

Time: 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Tamsyn & Kelly Russell

This father/daughter duo represents the essence of traditional NL music; the passing of our culture from one generation to the next. Tamsyn plays button accordion and also sings and plays guitar. Notable performances include many years on the Neil Murray Stage, Young Folk at the Hall, Harbourside Park Concert Series, and featured guest on A Feast of Cohen (2018). Her Dad is well known for his work with many groups and musicians over the years and has received various awards for his work promoting and preserving NL music, most notably The Order of Canada. Together they are currently performing in the new musical No Change in the Weather playing at the LSPU Hall this summer and touring Canada in the September & October. You can also hear them Monday nights during the summer at Tunes & Tales with Kelly Russell at The Crows Nest and occasionally at Folk Night at The Ship Pub, both in downtown St. John’s. They are accompanied on their Folk Festival performance by Jason Whelan.
