Songwriter and Inverness native, Jacqueline Kellock

A songwriter from Inverness has been making a name for herself in the country music scene south of the border.
Jacqueline (Macdonald) Kellock was born and raised in Inverness but has spent about 40 years of her life now in Calgary, Alberta.
Jacqueline is the daughter of Freddie (Jack D.) Macdonald and Catherine (Gillies) Macdonald of Inverness.
She grew up surrounded with Celtic and traditional country music.
At an early age she developed her interest in writing poetry and short stories but for many years, while raising her family, she kept writing but did not pursue it much until her children were grown.
“I have a son and a daughter and now have six grandchildren,” she told The Oran this week from her home in Calgary.
It wasn't until her move to Calgary that she discovered her passion for songwriting.
