East Coast Juno-award winning singer songwriter Amelia Curran visits the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage in Morrisburg on March 2nd. She has been described by Liverpool’s Seven Streets as “that rare thing: the real deal. A singer-songwriter with no agenda, no social media creation myth, just a guitar, a voice and that unswerving attention to detail that separates out the very best folk singers from the hype. Her honesty and purity might win her kudos on the acoustic circuit, but its the beauty of her compositions (some reminiscent of early Paul Simon, others as rootsy as Emmylou’s finest) that linger longest.” As much a poet as she is a songwriter, Amelia is anartist who has charted a course through longing and loss with lyrics that face life’s beauties and terrors with disconsolate urgency.
Tickets are $18 in advance or $20 at the door (all tickets are general admission). Tickets are available at Basket Case, Morrisburg; Strung Out Guitars, Cornwall and Compact Music, Ottawa or online.
