A Fine Evening with Sheena Grobb

March 17
Moon Gate Guest House, Whitemouth

Find your Celtic groove and enjoy a fine evening with Sheena Grobb. From the rolling hills of Treherne Manitoba, Sheena grew up surrounded by traditional and modern Celtic music which often rang out through the house. Raised by her mother, a music and school teacher and her father a local grain farmer, the Rankin Family and Manitoba-born Loreena McKennitt were on constant rotation. A pilgrimage to Scotland with her mother and sister affirmed Sheena’s longstanding love affair with Europe’s Celtic nations. Later, Irish rock band The Cranberries and Canadian triple Juno Award winner Ashley MacIsaac, influenced her music and ignited her own Celtic heritage from first listen.
