Shillon Music and a Whole Lot More…

Posted: December 23, 2017

If I've said it once I've said it a million times - the best part of this SEA AND BE SCENE adventure has been the wonderful people I've discovered and met over the years.

So after 7 1/2 years of taking it all in I'm here to tell you - Canada's EAST coast is full of fantastically talented folks.  I'll also go as far as saying so many of them are multi-talented and that my friends - makes for some truly wonderful story telling.

Case in point the brother and sister team of Shana and Dillon Brown from Whiteway, Newfoundland - who both learned to play instruments at a young age and who four years ago formed the duo - Shillon Music.

Fourteen year old Dillon loves to play his fiddle and also accompanies on guitar. Twelve year old Shana favours her accordion, but she's also fluent on guitar, whistle and concertina.

The two have already released their first CD entitled SHILLON TRADITIONS featuring traditional tunes and that special harmony you can only find among family.  No strangers to the stage - Shillon Music has performed with Young Folk at the Hall, Neil Murray Stage, The Rooms Kitchen Party, Random Passage, Eastport Accordion Festival, and various folk festivals around Eastern Newfoundland & Labrador. For more on Shillon Music visit their Facebook page.

So not only do they sing and play multiple instruments - they are talented in other areas as well.

Dillon is a visual artist and in addition to his work on CD cover design he has also created some wonderful drawings that feature the beauty of his home province.

His work has scored a keen interest from tourists to the area, many of whom have purchased prints for Christmas gifts. Dillon's artwork can be found on line through his Facebook page DB Artistry.

Shana's burgeoning business is one of jewelry and accessory design - created from of all things....guitar picks!

Her handcrafted necklaces, earrings and key chains are available in an incredible variety of colours and designs.  Be sure to check out her amazing work on Facebook at Perfeck Picks.

A big shout out to their mom Leila for letting me know about these two dynamos and cheers to you for all you do to support their creativity!
