Ellston sisters open for Ponderosas

Errington sisters getting more exposure for their musical talents

Regular performers at the Errington coffee house Chloe and Sidney Ellston are bursting with excitement.  The Parksville teens are the opening act this Saturday night for The Ponderosas all ages concert at the Errington Hall.  16-year-old Chloe and 13-year-old Sydney were a crowd favorite when they performed on stage at the Errington Farmers Market last September.  It was an inaugural gig for the sisters whose covers of current pop songs created some instant fans.

The duo got the performing bug after hitting the stage at the coffee house at the Errington Hall two years ago and have been regulars at that open stage event ever since, performing their country pop covers.

The two admit they would eventually like to write and perform their own songs, but for now they are happy doing covers and look forward to doing more gigs.

Chloe has been playing guitar since she was eight years old and Sydney has benefited from singing lessons.

The two said no one else in their family has musical talent and their inspiration has come from the enjoyment of listening to music.

Also opening for The Ponderosas is local duo Lemon Tree.

Tickets for the January 14 show are $15 at The Errington Store, Cranky Dog Music in Parksville and Heaven on Earth in Qualicum Beach. Admission for children under 12 is only $5 at the door and free for under 5.  The concert starts at 8 p.m.
