A transatlantic co-headline UK tour from Canada will be heading to the Mac Arts Centre in Birmingham.

On the bill will be The Ennis Sisters and Dave Gunning.

A spokesman said: They are two of the biggest names from a culture-rich maritime province of Canada.

"The Ennis Sisters have grown up and gone through a number of phases and musical explorations together. Their latest album, Stages, is a return to their roots – singing contemporary folk songs with a traditional Irish Newfoundland twist."

The spokesman added: "Dave Gunning’s recording career is now approaching full two decades in length. His debut album, Lost Tracks, came out in 1996.

"Along with richly deserved peer respect, he

has also earned a shelf full of music industry awards. That tally now stands at eight East Coast Music Awards and two Canadian Folk Music Awards, plus a 2012 Juno Award nomination in the Roots & Traditional Solo Album of the Year category."

The spokesman said: "His impressive songwriting skill has also been internationally recognised, with earlier tunes scoring victories and high placing in some major international songwriting competitions."

The date for the diary is February 28.
