Catherine MacLellan live
Catherine MacLellan’s new album Silhouette will be released in Canada on July 5th and to the rest of the world this fall, but we enjoyed a preview of the new music tonight at Roots Music Canada with an intimate concert and online livestream event.
Matching pure vocals with poetic lyrics and her uncompromising song writing craft, there is no doubt as to why PEI’s Catherine MacLellan has become one of the most celebrated new singer-songwriters in Canada by her contemporaries and media alike.
Voted ‘Critics Favourite New Discovery’ by Penguin Eggs Magazine in 2008, Catherine has quickly built up a loyal fan base and has been a hit with critics worldwide. Her album Church Bell Blues hit #1 on the iTunes Canada Roots charts, received critical acclaim and comparisons to Joni Mitchell from international magazines such as Q, Maverick, fRoots, the Austin Chronicle, and Boston Globe.
Her most recent CD, Water in the Ground, led to more recognition, including 2010 East Coast Music Awards for Female Solo Recording of the Year and Folk Recording of the Year, plus Solo Artist of the Year at 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
Thanks to everyone who joined us tonight, whether in person or on the web.
