The Warner Sisters

Cape Breton

Melody and Kelly Warner grew up in a musical household and began step dancing at a very early age. By the time they were entering their teenage years, they were performing synchronized step dance routines, as The Warner Sisters, throughout Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Western Newfoundland. Through the 1980s, the Warner Sisters appeared four times on television for the program Up Home Tonight and also were filmed for a BBC documentary. They were part of the group Highland Classic which included Ashley MacIsaac, Natalie MacMaster, Wendy MacIsaac, Rodney MacDonald, Stephanie Wills and Jackie Dunn. In the 1990s, Kelly Warner married and went on to raise a family while Melody continued to step dance and play fiddle with her husband, guitarist Derrick Cameron. Melody and Kelly were brought back together to do a synchronized step dance routine for The Rankin Sisters’ 2005 Christmas special, Home for Christmas. They were also featured in the Genuine Pictures (2006) documentary, And They Danced. The sisters have reunited for Celtic Colours concerts a number of times over the years.
