"Review of Julie Doiron concert (opening act Betsy MacDonald) by Ashley Fletcher"

"[Betsy and Greg's] music filled the hall; it was soft and soothing. They were very in-tune with each other and their harmony singing was amazing. I admire Betsy's sweet voice and am in awe of anyone who can play an instrument that is taller than themselves." - The Xaverian Weekly

"Intuitive Eye Productions Experiencing Motivational Success"

"Jones's documentary Yesterday's News, examining the positives in the life of a single mother, was a hit at the 2007 International Documentary Challenge, received awards for best writing, best use of experimental genre and best original song. The song was by Antigonish musician Betsy MacDonald. " - Communications Nova Scotia

"Mike Dalton plays final show (Jimmy Thomson)"

"Betsy MacDonald has a brilliant trio. They used to be Sister Kate, and now it’s a trio with her and Brendan and Greg Melchin. They work a lot of cool tunes, they’ve got a good sound,” [musician Mike Dalton] says. - The Xaverian Weekly

"Review of Damhnait Doyle concert - Stephanie Kent"

[Sister Kate] had an old-school and folksy sound, complimented well by vocalist Betsy's crisp, conversational tone and her rich low range. They played mostly original songs that were simple but well-played and defined by cute lyrics, simple harmonies, and a very tight rhythm section. - The Xaverian Weekly

"Knockout performers (Corey LeBlanc)"

Live [Roundhouse] performances also feature talented singer-songwriter Betsy MacDonald on harmony vocals. - The Casket


Newly released EP: "All This Time" (2009)



From within the great Canadian tradition of guitar-slingin', booze-swillin', injustice-condemnin' wandering poet women comes Betsy MacDonald. Betsy hails from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and has been making her mark on the music scene across the province and the country with a sound that vaccilates between the smooth and the gritty. Whether it's a touching folk melody or a trippy alt-country groove, Betsy's music is catharsis for the alienated worker of our times. And when you hear her, you might want to cry into your drink. Or chuck a brick through a window. Or maybe even both at the same time.
