Maria Dunn – Storyteller through Song
May 14, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$16
Juno-nominated songwriter Maria Dunn draws deeply on the folk tradition of storytelling through song. Melding North American roots music with her Scottish-Irish heritage, she sings about the resilience and grace of ordinary people, past and present.
Whether Maria sings a capella, with tasteful guitar accompaniment or the haunting drone of accordion, she sings with a beautiful and passionate voice. Maria has performed at folk festivals, theatres and conferences across Canada, Europe and the US. We are thrilled to present her in another SFS concert, just in time to celebrate the release of her new CD, Gathering! The new CD is a collection of songs inspired by love: the love of family, community, and the humanity that connects us and fires our actions to make the word a better place.
Advance tickets are available at http://mariadunn-sfs.brownpapertickets.com or at previous SFS concerts. Day of show tickets at the door (cash or check only) are $2 more for adult tickets ($18/$16/$8).
