Mickey & Bunny (Sheppard). Ukrainian-Canadian pop music duet: Mickey (singer, guitarist, accordionist – born Modest William Theodore Sklepowich in Ethelbert, Manitoba on March 27 1932) and his wife Bunny (singer, born Orissia Ewanchuk in Rosa, Manitoba on February 13, 1938). They began appearing together in 1964. Their repertoire included Ukrainian, Polish, German songs and Country music with an original compositions and a popular version of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land”.

In the 1960’s they were accompanied by the D-Drifters-5, an instrumental group led by the accordionist and bass guitarist Dave Roman, known for its Ukrainian versions of songs by the Beatles and other British pop groups of the day.
It was a fitting tribute to Mickey & Bunny that they received from His Worship Mayor Stephen Juba, his highest award “The Community Service Award” for their many years of hard dedicated work, charity performances and their long, never ending concert tours.
