The Christmas Season is fast approaching, truly MY favorite time of the year !! I look forward to the many Christmas shows we have booked and especially presenting my 9th Annual Hometown Christmas !! This years concert will be in the town of Kipling Sask. about 20 min. from where I was raised on the farm in South Eastern Saskatchewan. My special guest this year is a very talented and local fellow Alex Runions. His career in the Country Music world is really taking off with air play and shows across the nations and several awards to be very proud of as well, including, the 2016 SCMA Male Performer and Entertainer of the Year Awards !! Alex will be bringing some talented friends to join him on his portion of the show....

Hey friends, Well it's almost the end of September 2017... ALREADY !! Thanks for stopping by !!! WE have had such a busy year so far and still a few months to go. Since being on and off the road all year I have squeezed in some time to create some art for Prairie Girl Gifts, including painting a series of art for my annual art show at the Moose Mountain Artist Colony back in July and up-cycling many antiques and vintage wares for upcoming fall and Christmas trade shows. You can check out my current creations on my facebook page ~ Prairie Girl Gifts the Art of Eli Barsi ~ [ new posts and creations a couple of times a week ] Also here on this website at Prairie Girl Gifts
I have also been writing, writing, and writing some more with a large amount of material waiting to be recorded. I have been in and out of the studio a tiny bit throughout the summer but have more time this fall to start and complete some projects. I can guarantee that a few new projects will be released throughout 2018. Starting off with a special one of a kind collaboration album with long time friend to be released in Jan. 2018. More info on this very soon !!!!

New this fall !!! Eli's single ' FARM GIRL '
Eli co-wrote Farm Girl with fellow Saskatchewan Recording Artist Anthony Kelly. For many years Eli has had the opportunity to travel the world with her music. It hasn't been an easy journey as the music business can certainly weigh you down and be extremely demanding. Eli has not forgotten where she came from and credits growing up on the farm for her hard work ethic and determination to keep going with her career. When it comes to her songwriting she draws from life experiences and is very proud of her roots in Southeastern Saskatchewan and the solid foundation that has given her. Farm Girl is Barsi's 2nd release from her 13th CD Portrait of a Cowgirl , released to radio and CMT Sept. 2013. Check out the Video on You Tube or on her Video page !!!!
PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL YOUR FAVORITE RADIO STATION AND REQUEST ' FARM GIRL '
Eli's 1st single from from ' Portrait of a Cowgirl ' Hitch Your Wagon To a Star, is a true story of Eli’s first visit to Nashville years ago. At a very young age, she saved her money, packed her Pontiac and was determined to make the trip to Music City USA. The song talks about her journey but more importantly centers on the determination and drive that we all have inside of us that fuels our passions & dreams.
The song was recorded at the Bart McKay studios, produced by Bart & Eli.
Musicians include: Chad Melchert /drums, John Cunnigham/bass, Wendell Ferguson/guitar,
Bruce Hoffman/fiddle & steel, Bart McKay/b3, Eli/acoustic guitar,
Brad Johner & Becky Moonen/back ground vocals.

Eli ‘s 13th album, Portrait of a Cowgirl captures her best qualities as a songwriter and vocalist.
