Eli Barsi is driven by her passion for music, committed to giving her best, and strives for excellence on and off stage.
For over 3 decades Eli has been working as a professional musician, singer songwriter, and recording artist.
Early in her career she performed mainly in the provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
After a few years of non stop shows, she moved to Nashville Tennessee where she honed her craft as a songwriter.
Following several years of roadwork both sides of the border, she started to record albums, release radio singles, and moved on to the bigger stages.
Eli was hired to perform with the legendary Sons of the Pioneers in the early millennium and was based out of Branson Missouri for 8 years.
She has since relocated back to her birth Province of Saskatchewan Canada and uses this as her home base.
After all this time Eli remains a diverse artist that includes a variety of genres in her shows such as, Western Roots, Gospel, New Country, Bluegrass, Traditional Country & Folk which she delivers with equal proficiency.
Her show is always uplifting, with a mix of tasty standards and thought provoking originals featuring her ‘ Carter Scratch ‘ style of playing lead acoustic and her exceptional yodeling.
Eli is comfortable in various scenarios on stage, such as intimate BlueBird cafe singer songwriter style performances to a full 6 piece grandstand shows, festivals, and everything in between.
Staying busy is an understatement as she is forever writing, exploring new music, learning new instruments, and constantly reaching higher and moving forward in her career.
As she has often said “my strong desire to succeed has always far outweighed my fear of failure, I’m going to keep on keeping on.”
Eli Barsi is a farm cowgirl from the prairies of Saskatchewan Canada.

Eli has spent many years in the business as a diverse entertainer, musician, songwriter, producer, yodeller, Tv host & award winner.
Most memorable was when 2014 & 2015 brought her some great accolades including being the first Canadian Woman to receive a prestigious Wrangler Award from the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.
