CHARLOTTETOWN – In February, P.E.I.’s Amy and Rachel Beck kick off an East Coast tour in support of their award-nominated debut album. The folk/pop duo will play five intimate shows across three provinces – each and every one jam packed with harmony. Stops include Halifax, N.S.; Charlottetown; Saint John, N.B.; Sydney, N.S.; and Mount Stewart.

Amy and Rachel Beck
Since Amy and Rachel Beck emerged on the P.E.I. music scene, these songwriting sisters have been named national finalists in CBC Music’s Searchlight Competition, played dozens of shows, shared the stage with Serena Ryder at Big Red Music Festival, recorded and released their self-titled EP, and received a nomination for Music P.E.I. Roots Contemporary Recording of the Year – and all within the span of one year.
It seems that the Beck Sisters are taking their own advice from Track 5 on their album: “Coulda, shoulda, woulda’s just no good anymore.”
The Company House in Halifax is the first stop on Amy and Rachel Beck’s East Coast tour (Feb. 16). For that show, the Beck Sisters will be joined by Bennett Buell on guitar and Paul Vienneau on bass. Next is a hometown show at Marc’s Lounge in Charlottetown on Feb. 23, followed by Magnolia Cafe in Saint John on March 8.
After a brief break to showcase at East Coast Music Week in early April, Amy and Rachel will visit Cape Breton. The Cape Breton Fudge Company will host their show in Sydney on April 17 before the sisters head home to wrap up their tour at Trailside Cafe and Inn in Mount Stewart on May 17.
