Anthony Hugh Kelly was the second of five sons. From a very
early age Anthony’s parents taught their sons how to sing. With
Mom leading the singing and Dad playing guitar they put them on
stage entertaining at local concerts, family gatherings and even
some local television. Around the age of seven, Anthony showed
an interest in playing guitar and one was bought. Eventually a
family band emerged with Anthony on lead guitar. The
family band had a repertoire of gospel and country music.
Through high school Anthony played with a local rock band and
also got a
lot of experience performing on weekends with a dance band.
It was during this time that he first started writing songs.
After a year in Vancouver studying recording and music
business, Anthony returned to Saskatchewan and ended up
joining Shifty Morgan in the spring of 1993. Anthony lives
in the Qu’Appelle valley with his wife, Rosanne and their
four daughters. When he’s not making music he enjoys working
on the farm and playing with his kids
