The Hamilton Music Collective presents:
Ellis in Transit
Venue: The Gasworks Outdoor Stage (141 Park St N, Hamilton)
About Ellis in Transit:
Ellis in Transit are a British-Canadian indie rock band from Hamilton, Canada. The band was originally formed as an acoustic duo in Scotland, where Alexandria Shankland and Philip James performed across the UK before making their way to Canada. Grown out of a collective love for the golden age of rock and roll, bassist Francesco Citino and drummer Keagan Early helped branch Ellis in Transit into a full band where they began playing shows all across Ontario – their debut live show being on the Pier Stage at Burlington’s 2018 Sound of Music Festival. Once described as a young band “dripping with nostalgia”, Ellis in Transit have been likened to a wide variety of musical artists including Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys and Jefferson Airplane.
