Welcome

The Freddie and Sheila Pelletier Show features world class guitar picking and fantastic singing.  Their presentation is fun and humorous and their years of experience keeps it exciting and engaging!

Freddie, on lead acoustic and electric guitar and vocals emulates the work of Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed and others playing classic country, bluegrass, 60's rock and much more.  He is truly an extraordinary guitar instrumentalist.   Sheila, lead vocalist and rhythm guitar, sings a mix of classic country, folk, 60's and 70's rock and yodels.  They also do an array of original material, humorous songs and Freddie clogs while playing the guitar.

They have spent over a decade touring the sunny southern USA performing in Texas, Arizona and California in the winter months.  When they’re home they perform in a concert style setting across western Canada for any occasion from community theatres, arts councils, festivals to fundraisers and  private events.


Contact them by email or call  306-749-2498.  They'd love to perform in your community!

Merry Christmas! 

From Freddie and I to all of you, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  

We're excited to be getting ready for our upcoming winter USA tour to Texas, Arizona and California.  We have alot of great gigs booked!  We'll be in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas for the month of January, starting shows Jan. 3 and finishing Feb. 4th.  Then we head to the Port Aransas/Rockport area for three shows before heading to Arizona.  We'll bounce around the Phoenix area, Yuma and to California for most of Feb. and March.  Click here to see (and print) our entire winter schedule.  We'd love to see you at a show!

We've had a good year performing mostly in SK since we got home from the States this spring.  We were disappointed that our annual fishing/guitar camp trip to Iskwatikan Lake was cancelled due to terrible forest fires.  It was hard to be too sad about our trip though with so many people really suffering the consequences of the fires.  We're glad everyone survived and life is somewhat back to normal for them.  The July 2016 camp is the 9th to the 13th and most of the spaces have been filled.  Only 3 spots left.  Bryce Liddell (camp owner) has reserved July 13-17 for fishermen/women who aren't musicians but would like to be entertained by us each evening at the camp.  This should be a hoot!  If you're interested in either package, check out our Iskwatikan Lake Fishing/Guitar Camp page on this website.

 Most of our fall was spent renovating our house.  We're happy to say we're finished (well, almost) and we're really enjoying the updated look!

A big thank you to everyone who came out to a show this year!  We appreciate you all very much!  Hope to see you in 2016!

Season's Greetings
Sheila and Freddie

Thanks for a great USA tour! 

Freddie and I want to thank everyone who came out to our shows this winter.  It was a fantastic season and it's all because of YOU!  Thank you.  A big thank you to all the activity directors that hired us to perform in your resort.  We really appreciate your support!

We also had a great season of guitar lessons both in Mission, TX and Mesa, AZ.  Thanks to all who came out!  This was our first year at Citrus Gardens in Mesa and the response was great!  We had up to 16 participants which is a really good number for the first year.

We will continue with lessons next year.  In Mission, TX they will be held at Mission Bell Resort every Monday in January at 1pm in Friendship Hall.  In Mesa, AZ they'll be held at Citrus Gardens Resort in March - which hall, time and dates TBA.

Last but certainly not least, we'd like to thank our sponsors:  Mission Bell Resort, Mission TX, Indian Waters Resort, Indio, CA and Citrus Gardens Resort, Mesa, AZ.  We've spread the word all through the southern USA about how terrific these resorts are and we hope you'll all check them out.  They are a great place to call your home away from home.  Find more info on these great resort here.

Change of Phone Number! 

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick note to tell you that I had the wrong phone number listed for the Iskwatikan Lake Fishing/Guitar Camp on that page.  The correct number for Bryce Liddell is 306-425-7014.  It has also been corrected on the page.  Anyone interested in going on this adventure with the Pelletier Family should inquire and book soon.  Space is limited to only 13 participants!   Click here to check out all the details!

Have a great day!
Sheila

USA Tour Almost Finished! 

It always seems that as soon as we start performing in the USA, it's over!  That is the case again this year.  We're winding down with only three shows and two guitar lessons left.

We've had a cancellation.  QUAIL RUN in ARIZONA CITY has cancelled our show for Tues. Mar. 17th (St. Pat's Day).  Our apologies to anyone who may have been planning to go.  Sincere apologies to anyone who happens to go and we aren't there.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful sponsors:  Mission Bell Resort in Mission, TX, Citrus Gardens Resort in Mesa, AZ and Indian Waters Resort in Indio, CA.  Check out our Sponsors page on this website and visit these parks when you are in the sunny southern USA.

Thanks to all the resort activity directors who have brought in our show this year and past years.  There are a few who have had us back almost every year since we started performing down here 14 years ago.  Isn't that amazing?  Desert Gold in Brenda, AZ is one and Catalina Spa in Desert Hot Springs, CA is another.  Thank you for your continued support!!

We'd also like to thank everyone who came out to our shows over the winter.  You were all a wonderful audience and we have enjoyed this tour very much!!  A big thank you to Richard, Madeline, Eddie, Bev and her Southern Comfort gang who help us and are wonderful friends in the Rio Grande Valley and to Mandy and Peter who are so good to us in Mesa!  We sure meet alot of incredible people in our travels!  

This time of year all us Snowbirds and Winter Texans start thinking about heading back home and we're excited about performing at home too.  Just recently we've been booked by a new event centre in Prince Albert, SK called Plaza 88 Event Centre (formerly the old PA Co-op building on Central Ave).  The Pelletier Family - Freddie, Sheila, Clint and Thea will perform in concert for their grand opening event on May 2nd.  They'll also have a dinner in a different banquet hall prior and tickets can be purchased for both or the show only by calling the event centre at 306-763-4438.  We're thrilled to be asked to be part of their grand opening events and we thank Linda Jensen for thinking of us.

Speaking of Clint and Thea... we want to congratulate them on the award they've recently won.  Planet Music has won the honors of 'Top Music School ' for the Top Choice Awards in Edmonton, AB.  Congratulations to them and their staff on their hard work to make their music school the best in Edmonton. Even if you don't live in Edmonton, they offer lessons via Skype. Check them out at planetmusic.ca  

Take care everyone,
Sheila and Freddie
 

Our 2015 USA Tour has begun! 

Hi everyone!  I'm writing to you from Mission, TX where we have started our USA shows from now until the end of March.  I'd like to say the weather is spectacular but it's cool to local standards.  Although it seems quite nice to us since we came from -36 C when we left home Dec. 28th.

Check out our calendar and if you're in any of these areas this winter, come and check us out.  Prices of all shows are VERY reasonable!!

If you've already checked our schedule, please note a few changes:

1)  The FEB 26th show at Gila Mountain in Yuma has been CHANGED to FEB 22 (Sunday).

2)  The Twin Palms show in Apache Junction on Mar. 16th has been cancelled by the resort

3)  The Aztec Resort show in Mesa, AZ on Feb. 19th has been cancelled by the resort

I hope those changes doesn't cause anyone grief (you show up and we aren't there!)  My apologies if it does.

December 16, 2014 Merry Christmas! 

Hi Everyone,

Freddie and I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2015!

We will be leaving right after Christmas, Arizona,as and will be starting our winter USA tour on Jan. 4th in San Benito, TX.  We have almost 50 dates booked across Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.  If you're going to be in any of those states this winter then check our our schedule page and come and see us!

If you are planning to see us this winter, please note that we have two recent cancellations:  Feb. 19 at Aztec Resort in Mesa, AZ and Mar. 16 at Twin Palms Resort in Apache Junction, AZ.  Some of our print schedules have already gone out with those dates on them. Our apologies.

Our advertising has just gone out for the 2nd Annual Iskwatikan Lake Fishing and Guitar Camp, July 8 - 12/15.  We are super excited to have Clint and Thea Pelletier with us for this camp.  This is your opportunity to get some one on one instruction by Clint, Freddie, Thea and I.  We fly in to this camp and can only take 13 people with us so lessons will be small and personalized, plus you get to fish this amazing lake!  As of right now we have 9 spaces left with four tentatives so book early to avoid missing out.    We have a page dedicated to the camp.  Click here to check it out and come and join us!

A huge thank you to everyone who have come to a show, bought a CD, came to the fishing camp last July or supported our guitar camp over the years we operated.  Of course, we depend on you for our livelihood and for that we are eternally grateful.  We hope our music or teaching has brought the joy of music into your lives because it's been most joyful performing for you and teaching you!

 Merry Christmas!
Sheila and Freddie

October 23, 2014 

Hi Everyone and welcome to our brand new website!

 We hope you find it easy to maneuver and find the info you are looking for.  If it doesn't then contact us and we'll help you.

We had a summer full of great gigs. This was our first year of the Iskwatikan Lake Fishing and Guitar Camp.  We partnered with Bryce Liddell at the Iskwatikan Lake Lodge north of La Ronge for a unique fly in fishing and guitar instruction experience.  What fun we had with our 10 participants!  So much fun that we're going to do this next July 8 - 12, 2015.  Check out our page called Iskwatikan Fishing/Guitar Camp for more information.

 We performed at both the Dakota Dunes and Painted Hand Casino's, the John Arcand Fiddle Festival by Saskatoon, Prince Albert Exhibition, Bellevue, SK for St. Jean Baptist Day and Elbow, SK for the unveiling of a sculpture that artist, Joe Fafard donated to the town.  We had a fantastic time at the Northern Lights Bluegrass Festival north of Big River, SK in August too.

We also did guitar workshops and a show at Greig Lake, SK for the Junior Forest Wardens organization.  This is a fantastic organization of kids, parents and grandparents all learning valuable life skills together.  An incredible organization and one we would recommend to anyone looking for rewarding clubs for their kids to be a part of.

This spring we had another 'Singin, Pickin, and Grinnin' concert series show in Moose Jaw, SK at the Mae Wilson Theatre.  This is our third year of shows there and we are so grateful to the wonderful staff at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre (MJCC) for continuing to invite us back.  Our fall show was Oct. 18th with Calvin Vollrath and Rhea Labrie.  Fantastic fiddling and stepdancing and we had such a great audience.  We're happy to announce that the MJCC wants us to continue the concert series so stay tuned for information on our 2015 shows.

We also had alot of family events to play at this summer - weddings, showers, reunions and had some great company stop by including the Missouri based family bluegrass group, Link Union.  What a great summer it was!  We were happy to be busy!

Now we're getting ready for fall shows that you can check out on our Show Schedule page and gearing up for a really busy winter of RV and Golf Resort shows across Texas, Arizona and California.  Click here to see the entire schedule.

We hope to see you somewhere in our travels and thank you, as always, for your continued support.  Until then ...

Sheila and Freddie
