Rosemary Phelan’s Woodshed Session
Golden Quill Songwriting award-winner Rosemary Phelan and accompanist Jason LaPrade joined us on the ‘Shed stage for a performance and interview in front of our live online audience. Many thanks to everyone who tuned in to the webcast!
Rosemary Phelan has run the gamut from calling square dances in the hills of northern Vermont to singing Mozart in the halls of the Royal Conservatory. Somewhere between the barn and the recital hall she found the music of her heart.
The grace and losses encountered during a tumultuous, nomadic childhood, time spent eking out a hard-won living in the bush, and her years as a community nurse in the urban core live in Rosemary’s songs. She sincerely hopes the goodness she unearthed at the root of it all can be found there, too.
A 1-minute “trailer” showing highlights of the Woodshed Sessions’ third episode is posted above. For your viewing pleasure, our production team has also edited the show into a series of short video selections.
