Details of funeral and visitation to be released.  Ellen has made a last request in an open letter.

Hi this is Ellen.

If you are reading this I have transitioned on to my new adventure.

I had great joy being able to perform around the world and meet so many incredible people.

I want to make sure Emily and my boys are taken care of and my final wish was to be able to gift them new kilts and equipment.

I want the Tartan Terrors to continue bring music, laughter and joy to those around the world.

If you can contribute in anyway so my memory will live on with them.

I don’t want you to feel sad for me. I loved bringing happiness to people and sharing the joy that performing gave me.

Thanks you for all the wonderful support over the last two years. Love and Peace.

Those who experience a Tartan Terrors live show will feel a blast of energetic Celtic rock one moment and enjoy a traditional and familiar melody the next. They are known for their unique mix of classic and original tunes with pipes and fiddle, driving drum tones, and signature guitar styles. High calibre step and Highland dancing enhances the musical performance. Storytelling and comedy add to the journey of the performance.

For 20 years, the Terrors have been performing from coast to coast in North America and abroad.

“We are proud of the way we build rapport with our audiences,” Ellen Irmisch says. “Wee ones love to dance up front while older folks tap their feet and clap right the way through. We move easily from lighthearted comedy and big laughs to inspiring numbers that honour the military or breast cancer survivors.”
