Dennis Ellsworth



Dennis Ellsworth is a prolific songwriter. Lately he’s gotten into rhythm of writing, recording and releasing
an album a year. In between records, he travels around the planet singing songs characterized by a kind
of dark optimism that’s informed by early influences such as Roy Orbison, Neil Diamond and Kris Kristofferson. He won 2 Music PEI awards this year – Roots Contemporary Recording and Male Solo Recording of the Year.


Born into the Icelandic community in Manitoba, Lindy Vopnfjörd started his music career early. By four,
he was singing cautionary songs about nuclear war and traveling around with his musician parents and
extended family in a bus. The digital release of his most recent album, his career seventh, called Young
Waverer was on February 26, 2013. It is a soaring landscape of stream of consciousness stories about love and loss, alongside unique tales about his upbringing on icy Lake Winnipeg.
