Tip Er Back plays a mix of Maritime favourites, traditional Gaelic, country and some original music. Betts, Currie and Murray were members of Kickin’ Country, the popular dance band that played at many dance halls on P.E.I.  

Betts is not only a singer and musician but also a songwriter. He has penned the And I Owe Life to You, sung by many
