We’re happy to announce the release of the feature length documentary The McDades – Brother Brother Sister Making Music. Here’s the official press release for the film:
The McDades – Brother Brother Sister Making Music is a feature-length documentary about the Juno Award-winning band The McDades. It’s a documentary where music is at the heart of everything. It celebrates family, great music and what it takes to make it as non-commercial artists in Canada.
Siblings Shannon Johnson, Solon McDade and Jeremiah McDade are The McDades. Their Celtic-rooted music fuses the spontaneity of jazz improvisation with infectious global rhythms. Their unique sound is the perfect complement to their fiery performances.
Filmed in Edmonton and Montreal, and on tour in Alberta and the Netherlands, the film offers a glimpse into the real lives of these hugely likeable, talented and hard-working musicians.
