Western Canadian Tour 

woaaa, I'm about to hop on Via Rail again to start a beautiful summer tour! I'm headed out west for a while with my dear friend and fellow singer-songwriter Morgan Macdonald. I'll be performing on the train all the way to Vancouver, and then slowly making my way back home through the prairies, and also through Northern Ontario for the first time. For all the tour dates from Mayne Island to Toronto, just look down! Montrealers, take note: I will be back at Chick Pickin' Mondays on July 28th. There are more dates coming! For the most up to date list visit http://www.corinnarose.com/shows

The John Lennon Awards  



As you may have heard, my original song, co-written with the Rusty Horse Band, "Green Mountain State" won the Grand Prize of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the Folk Category (Session I) back in August 2013. Now I have a 1/24 chance of winning the Lennon Award for Song of the Year (a 20,000$ prize) and I need your help. Green Mountain State is going head to head in a voting battle against the winner of the Folk Category in Session II. Whoever comes out on top will have a 1/12 shot at the top prize.

Now, in all honesty - I know these voting competitions can be a pain. This is coming at the same time as the CBC Searchlight Competition, not to mention the real Provincial elections in Quebec this Monday (actually if I'm going to encourage you to vote for anything, PLEASE go rock the vote on Monday!). I know many of you will already be voting for your favourite music/political party and I completely understand if you cannot or choose not to participate. I am so grateful for all of the support you have all given me in these past years. But if you wish to lend a hand, or check out the song I'm up against, just visit www.jlsc.com/vote and vote for your favourite song (whether it be mine or "Your Footprints" by Michelle Lockey). You can vote as much or as little as you want up to once per day from today until April 29th. Feel free to share the link should you so desire.

You are all wonderful. I will have news for you all soon about new tour dates and local shows! In the meantime, for those of you in Montreal you can always catch me on Monday nights at Grumpy's (1242 Rue Bishop) for Chick Pickin' (a most wonderful evening where we showcase women singer-songwriters). It's FREE, and it starts at 9:30pm. 

Oh and here's the live chamber folk edition of Green Mountain State that was filmed at Casa Del Popolo last month!

Under the Snow Festival with Marissa Nadler! 

Oh, it has been a fantastic month, and it keeps getting better. I just got back from Kansas City, Missouri last week for the Folk Alliance conference, where I was playing music all day and all night. I picked up some new skills on banjo, learning from some incredible teachers including Riley Baugus and Ken Perlman and stayed up late playing in hotel rooms and showcases with Gabrielle Papillon (who by the way is coming out with a new album!).
 

Jammin' in La La Land

This week the Under The Snow Festival begins! I am very excited to be part of the line-up, and absolutely floored that I'll be opening up for Marissa Nadler. I've been a fan of hers since I was in my late teens. Part of me still can't believe that I'll be playing on the same stage! She has a new album out, called "July". I'll be bringing back Ari Swan and Quinn Brander on strings as well as Lisa Malachowski on backing vocals. The show is this Saturday March 8th at Casa del Popolo, doors open at 8:30pm! Get your tickets in advance here,'cause this one might just sell out: http://www.liftticketsystem.com/tickets/marissa-nadler-corinna-rose.



See you all soon!
 

Show this Friday with Peter Katz! 

Let's just say I am so so so excited for this show. I'll be playing as a trio with Ari Swan (violin) and Quinn Brander (cello). We have rearranged old songs with the help of Nick Lavigne and may even do a new song or two.

All the details (and tickets) are here: http://www.hellodarlinproductions.com/upcoming_concerts.htm
8pm, Friday February 7th!

Did I mention we are opening for Folk machine Peter Katz!?

New Year, New Projects, New Shows 

I am long overdue for a post, aren't I? The last few months have been incredible- an east coast tour with Heirloom, amazing jam times the Folk Music Ontario conference, playing a couple of sweet shows with my very own Dad and guitar master Martin Posen, and finally coming home to Montreal to rest a while in my hometown.
 

Heirloom hanging out in Cape Breton for the very first time.


The new year is bringing some exciting things too! I am now the official host of Chick Pickin' Mondays at Grumpy's, a singer-songwriter night for women folks. Each week we have a new guest coming through, sometimes local, sometimes from the other end of the country (including friends Jenny and Kristen Berkel, Ainsley McNeaney, Heirloom, Gabrielle Papillon, Cécile Doo-Kingué... the list goes on!). The full schedule can be viewed at http://chickpickin.wix.com/home. I'll be there most weeks, brandishing a banjo or a guitar, or potentially both, performing my usual material, and some unusual material (covers, and hopefully some new songs very soon).

Next week I am off to record on Gabrielle Papillon's new album! I'll be flying in to Halifax, sticking around for a few days to record some banjo, vocals and perhaps other random instruments. I am so excited for her new record. As part of my new years resolution to finally write some new material, I'm planning on hanging out for a few extra days to get inspired by the ocean, and jam with some of my beautiful East Coast musician friends.

When I get back I've got a really special show coming up- I am very excited to announce that I'll be opening for Peter Katz at Petit Campus on February 7th. More details coming soon, but save the date in the meantime! I may even have some sweet guests coming to play with me too. 

Happy New Year (and I promise to post more sooner rather than later),

Corinna
