The folk trio from Prince Edward Island known as The Eastern Belles brought the east coast to Kindersley on Wednesday for an excellent performance at the Norman Ritchie Community Centre.
Catherine MacLellan, Ashley Condon, and Meaghan Blanchard have established themselves as solo artists, but have now come together to form The Eastern Belles.

The concert was in the style of a songwriter’s circle, and was the third put on by the Kindersley and District Arts Council.
For the group’s first time in Kindersley, the Eastern Belles drew a good crowd for a mid-week concert.

For the band touring together is a way to build community as a group of friends.

Each solo artist showcased their own tunes, and got to sing harmonies, and back up one another.

Juno winner Catherine MacLellan is one third of the Belles, and spoke about how playing in Saskatchewan is similar to the group’s homeland.
The Eastern Belles were chosen by members of KDAC based off their performance at this year’s autumn showcase hosted by OSAC, the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Council. The trio was a standout at the showcase which featured around 15 different musical acts.

The next performance the Kindersley and District Arts Council will be hosting is The Dead South from Regina on December 9th at the Norman Ritchie Community Centre.
