Wonderful window into Celtic and Acadian Cultures
Sep. 2019
It's a step dancing, fiddling and singing tour de force, with the equivalent energy of a Bruce Springsteen concert. A window into Celtic and Acadian cultures preserved by the relative isolation of PEI, with a good dose of lighthearted information about Prince Edward Islanders themselves. The 2 sisters and 1 brother are immensely talented singers, dancers, and musicians. Probably the best performance I'll see in 2019 across all genres.

The venue is in an enormous barn that has been modernized and turned into a performing arts venue. Full bar available.

About 45-minute drive from Charlottetown. The group also plays regularly in Charlottetown.

Endless energy
Sep. 2019 • Friends
The 3 members of the group performed with seemingly endless energy. Their mother joined in some of the step dancing. The barn is not your average barn.

Excellent value

A really enjoyable evening of music in a gorgeous country setting. Midway break with meat pie and ice cream and fruit. The floor boards were vibrating, everyone stomping and clapping along.

Not for everyone
Sep. 2019
Obviously the three siblings are very talented, they can sing, dance and play instruments. Years of hard work and practice, no doubt.

I did not enjoy the show. I found it to be really hokey with lame jokes. Their jokes seemed rehearsed and I do not feel there was a connection with the audience.

Considering they consistently get 5 of 5 it is obviously me . However, let me also say that I saw fiddling and dancing at the Mack theatre in Charlottetown this week and it was amazing. Stephen is a professional - he connected with the audience and it was great.

I think the Ross family could use some new material and some professional stage help. Just my humble opinion.

The talent of these young people is inspiring and so entertaining. They connect with their audience and do amazing acts with their varied talents! Absolutely loved their show at the Guild Hall in Charlottetown.

This couldn't have been any better. This is an extremely talented and fun-loving group of people and it was an extremely enjoyable evening. The venue is great as well, a refurbished barn. The Ceilidh is one of the many reasons we will return to PEI.

Well worth the extra effort
Sep. 2019
As a person with impaired mobility, the barn is a bit of an issue. There is a lengthy ramp at the back but takes you directly to the main floor; parking is a challenge there, so best to be taken to the base of the ramp then have someone move the car.

The venue and the grounds are gorgeous, so worth scouting around to take it all in. There were over 100 seats set up but this didn't feel cramped.

The Ross family are second to none that we've seen on the Island. We attended after Labour day, so the show wasn't sold out but I expect it does during the high season. They're as good as anything we've taken in at the Confederation centre (which is high praise).

We were so impressed with the brother who plays keyboard that we also went to a dance in Summerside hosted by Fallback, a 60's band that plays at the Silver Fox every Thursday. Just as impressive; the only dance I've ever gone to where every person sitting got up to dance the minute the band started--some didn't sit down the whole 2 hrs we were there. Excellent dancers!!

Big Show
Sep. 2019
A bit more than a Ceilidh! Incredible performances and a beautiful big barn showplace. Was worried, that it seemed a bit 'slicker' than an old time ceilidh, but the siblings and their mother were the real thing, with roots in the music and love of sharing their passion for it. Each was exceptionally talented and you couldn't help but to smile at some of their goofy banter and tricks.

Worth going to see!
Aug. 2019
We wanted to experience some traditional island music on our recent trip to PEI and came across an advertisement for the Ross Family. We booked tickets to see them at the Clinton Hills barn near Kensington. At first impression, I thought it was going to be a long night and considered leaving at intermission, but I'm sure glad we didn't! The show was filled with so much energy and I loved the pieces of history that were told between songs. My 65 year old mom and 11 year old daughter loved the show as well. The blueberry sundae and meat pie at intermission were lovely too.
