Ashelin is actually the five Palmer sisters, Cassy, Joesie, Kaliyan, Shaelin and Thea, who hail from Newfoundland, Canada. The sisters began singing and dancing to Newfoundland and Irish music as far back as they can remember while learning to play a stunning variety of instruments. Although they never expected this childhood passion for all things musical to be anything but family focused, they were soon embarking on a musical journey that is winning them attention and fans around the world.
“The energy these enchanting sisters project from the stage will capture the audience right from the start,” said Charlie Jordan, President of the GNWCA. “Ashelin is the latest of a series of stellar performers we’ve been able to bring to the North Country through our association with the Skye Theatre in Maine and we are delighted to have them return to Colebrook.”
Tickets for Ashelin are $15 each and on sale at Fiddleheads, 110 Main St. in Colebrook and at the door on the night of the concert. For more information on this and other upcoming GNWCA shows, visit the organization’s website at www.gnwca.org or call 237-9302 or 246-8998.
