Newfoundland’s Amelia Curran is a JUNO-Award winning singer-songwriter, activist, and mental health advocate whose music is distinguished by intricate and elliptical lyrics that are geologic in their resilience and oceanic in their depths. Her music has been described as “a bit like Leonard Cohen being channeled in a dusty saloon by Patsy Cline” (National Post) – plainspoken and sophisticated at the same time, and able to satisfy both folk purists and open-minded fans of more contemporary folk.
In this solo performance, Amelia shows why she is heralded as one of our most enigmatic and powerful songwriters.
This concert is part of Canada Scene’s free Scene@6 series. Running every evening at 18:00 from July 2 to 23, the series showcases this country’s top folk, roots, world, and jazz artists in the NAC’s new Atrium.
