The Bowes Brothers

Truly a “Band of Brothers”, Ed, Rod, John and Andy stay true to their roots. They were born, raised and still live near their hometown of Carleton Place, Ontario, where they share the stage with their dad, Clarence. Many of their songs are written by eldest brother, Ed, while they all take their turn on lead vocals. Singing in four-part harmony, with influence from some country music’s greats, gives the Bowes Brothers the edge that makes them one of the Ottawa Valley’s favourite bands. Add to that, a little yodeling from youngest brother Andy, and a performance packed with energy and humour and you get the Bowes brothers.

In only a very few, short years, the Bowes Brothers have earned a spot on the stage with some of the best names in country music. Names like Ricky Skaggs, Charlie Major, George Canyon, Paul Brandt, Ronnie Prophet, Michelle Wright, the Road Hammers and Stompin’ Tom Connors. In 2009, in front of a hometown crowd of thousands, the Bowes Brothers opened the Riverside Jam for Terri Clark!
