all the singer-songwriters that are making their presence known on Prince Edward Island, and there are quite a few, Dennis
Ellsworth is standing out from the crowd." - Glenn Meisner,
CBC's Atlantic Airwaves
Dennis has grown into
one of Atlantic Canada's most potent songwriters, with beautifully poetic lyrics and a veteran's sense of melody,
tune and arrangement.
The most recent release,
Dusk Dreams, was recorded in Athens, Georgia, with acclaimed musician and producer, David Barbe (Drive By Truckers, Cracker,
Bob Mould/Sugar). The album consists of ten songs that blend folk, pop, country, lounge, blues, soul, and whatever else. Barbe's
production is subtle, yet gorgeous and steers clear of interfering with the loosely wonderful performances. Critics are calling
Dusk Dreams, Dennis Ellsworth's most beautifully crafted release to date.
Dennis Ellsworth has two previous solo recordings, 2010's Chesterfield Dweller of the Year, which Americana-UK.com
called "heartfelt and heart-achingly beautiful, a timeless album", and Strange Boat, an EP released
in September 2011 and nominated for 4 MPEI awards.

SPOOKY MEN'S CHORALE
Wave goodbye to choirs as you know them. This one is a macho juggernaut - zany, black-clad, big as a behemoth and
show-stoppingly good. Sounding as sacred as a high church choir one minute; wickedly off the wall the next.
triumphant UK tours in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2011 The Spooky Men’s Chorale will leave their native New South Wales in
Australia to embark on their fourth tour of England, Scotland and Wales when they will regale Spooky veterans and virgins
alike with rib-tickling (sometimes heart-rending) original compositions and eloquent arrangements by the inspired antipodean
choral impresario, Stephen Taberner.
Compellingly comic they may be but make no mistake, this is a class act. Pitch perfect harmonies, theatrical delivery,
savvy lyrics, imaginations that run riot and men who really can multi-task! See them in action here on youtube
With a close harmony
sound variously described as “sexy, powerful., impossibly gentle and sad but unmistakably male” their repertoire
ranges from Georgian style chants to a capella ballads, spiky political jabs, Cole Porter’s Every Time We Say Goodbye,
hilarious spoofs of Queen’s Flash and Earth, Wind & Fire’s Boogie Wonderland and the funniest version of Abba’s
Dancing Queen your ears are likely to hear.
