Shannon Rose

Shannon Rose

Shannon Rose enjoys the quiet life: reading, Scrabble, and tea—she saves her vocals for the stage where she unfolds her tender folk-pop and retro soul songs that are marked by gentle idiosyncrasies that give the songs character. That she gets to do all of the above with her guitarist husband Steve at her side, is as sweet as the honey in the tea, or a zed on a triple word score.

 

 

 

Erin Saoirse Adair

Erin Saoirse Adair

Erin is a diverse composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist based out of Ottawa, Ontario. Recently, she has become a prominent and popular voice in the local folk scene, and has garnered accolades for her bluesy, accessible and deeply relevant messages. Inspired by poets such as Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath, by songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell, and by contemporary composers such as Igor Stravinsky, and Yann Tiersen, Adair’s music is a unique blend. Erin Saoirse Adair’s songs reflect her Irish and Scots heritage and the influence of folkloric traditions in her music (through her extensive and formative travels in Celtic Western Europe); and though her musical arrangements are complex, Adair’s goal on stage is to tell a story.
