Submitted by Kevin Kelly Preparations for the Christmas season means a lot of hustle & bustle. It’s especially true for teenagers Emily & Thomas Conway, the duo known as CONWAY. A jam-packed schedule over the past month saw them perform at the iconic St. John’s pub, O’Reilly’s, the province’s cultural hotbed The Rooms, and this Christmas season, their first ever television special will air. The Mount Pearl duo just recently taped the holiday special, which will be broadcast on NTV, Newfoundland & Labrador’s independent broadcaster, province-wide, and the station is also available on many cable systems across the country, as well as internationally in Bermuda. “We’re very excited about this opportunity,” Emily tells Cashbox Magazine Canada. “We have some amazing talent joining us.” It’s especially impressive, considering they haven’t released their first album yet. The special, which is scheduled to air on NTV December 23rd at 3:30 pm ET, & rebroadcast on Boxing Day at 9:30 am  ET, will feature CONWAY along with appearances by recent Cashbox Canada cover artist Rachel Cousins, and rising young local performers Darcy Scott & Jenna Maloney. The St. Peter’s Youth Choir will also perform on the special. It won’t be the first time the duo has performed on NTV, however. They’ve showcased at the annual Janeway Hospital Miracle Network Telethon & the Children’s Wish Telethon, both filmed by the television station, and it was those appearances that caught the attention of the station’s management. “Thanks to that, we were fortunate enough to get this opportunity,” Emily says, grateful for the chance to showcase their group to a wide television audience. If that wasn’t enough, they were also part of a kitchen party event that was filmed for the Rogers Hometown Hockey program during the show’s recent stop in Mount Pearl. The Newfoundland traditional duo has been making waves on the local music scene in Canada’s most easterly province for a few years, despite the fact that Emily is only sixteen and Thomas is thirteen. They have showcased at the iconic George Street Festival in St. John’s, East Coast Music Week, the inaugural Live At Heart Newfoundland conference on the Burin Peninsula, the Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Festival, MUSICNL functions and many other festivals & events around the province. With over 200 performances under...
