Joey Kitson is one of Atlantic Canada’s favorite singers. The versatile vocalist is equally at home singing Celtic ballads, soulful rhythm and blues, big band jazz or musical theatre. Kitson began his love of the blues as lead singer of the Island group the Rock Island Blues Band in the late eighties. As the charismatic front man for Celtic Rock group Rawlins Cross, Kitson has toured through North and South America and Europe, collected numerous music industry awards and helped sell truckloads of albums. He also has sung with the great Doug “Dr. Music” Riley, finding yet another outlet for his impressive musical sensibility. Kitson has performed in feature roles in a number of Confederation Centre of the Arts productions in his native Charlottetown, PEI including Canada Rocks and the timeless Anne Of Green Gables. Kitson’s debut solo recording is STAN - a collection of songs by Canadian folk music legend Stan Rogers.
Twelve year old Julien Kitson began his fascination of the music when he first spotted a poster of the “Blues Brothers” in a storage room at his family home in Stratford, PEI. The then three year-old started listening to blues classics he eventually found among his father’s music collection. He feels equally comfortable singing, playing his guitar, drums, piano, and harmonica. He has just recently made the leap from performing at his grand-parents house parties to backing up his father Joey at shows around the Island and at his mother Nancy’s restaurant/bar in Cap-Pelé, NB. Julien is currently a member of the Young Company for the 2014 production of “Anne and Gilbert” at the Guild in Charlottetown.
