John Lennon Songwriting Contest & POP Montreal 

 I am so pleased to announce that the song "Green Mountain State" that I co-wrote with the Rusty Horse Band (and was featured in Sarah Polley's film, "Take This Waltz") just won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the Folk Category! Check us out on the front page:

We are so stoked, and what fabulous news to receive while on tour. Leah and I have had a fabulous trip - We are on the train home to Montreal as we speak, Leah's editing some sweet photos beside me and we're just catching up on some e-mails. We'll be posting some good ones soon!

In the meantime, here's a shot of us playing with Sarah Jane Scouten and Kristen Berkel in Bruno, SK! We happened to run into them in Saskatoon the night before, and they invited us to come celebtrate the arrival of CTV Saskatoon, in Bruno. We jammed all day, and Leah even line danced.

Oh and did I mention that we'll be playing TWICE at POP Montreal this year? Come hang out at Petit Campus on Friday Sept. 27th for 8:30pm (, or at Brasserie Beaubien on Sunday Sept. 29th (with the full band!) at 9:15pm (, or both! We'd love to see you there.

'till next time!

So It Goes Contest and Sweet Show with Jennah Barry 

I am SO excited to finally share this! We are launching a verse contest to the song "So It Goes".

You can turn your excrutiating breakup or strange dating experience into hilarious rhyming couplets!

Winning verses will be published on Facebook, and brave souls who are willing to perform their verses at a show will get free CDs, T-Shirts and maybe even a free beer (if you do it at Chick Pickin' Mondays). We may even eventually make a nice little zine out of it.

Take a look at the video below for more info, and visit for the latest verse examples.

You can also give the track a listen (and get a free download) below!

Submissions can be made via e-mail at: soitgoes[at]corinnarose[dot]com OR in person at any Corinna Rose show!

The first opportunity to submit in person will be this Wednesday August 21st at the Mile End Guitar Shop. We're playing with East Coast sensations Jennah Barry and Burrows! More info and tickets here:

Zoofest with David Martel 

Wow, what an amazing month! I've been travelling to and from the Maritimes (with Leah Dolgoy rocking it on Autoharp), for some super fun festivals, and wow, the Montreal Folk Fest was incredible (holy cow Tim O'Brien is talented), oh and did I mention a really nice tweet about the new record from Sarah Polley (see right side bar). I'm still reveling in the wonderfulness that was June.

I'm home for a couple of months now, to play some sweet local shows! On Saturday July 13th, I'll be opening for David Martel at Zoofest! I had the pleasure of playing at the Dunham Folk and Wine Festival in 2011 so I am so excited to share the stage with him again. The show takes place at Théâtre Ste. Catherine (264 Rue St Catherine E)- Doors at 9:30pm, show starts at 10pm! Get your tickets now over at or in stores at Cheap Thrills, L'Oblique, Atom Heart or La Vitrine.

I'll leave you with a lovely picture from Full Circle Festival in Newport Landing Nova Scotia. Leah & I were performing while the sun was setting, meanwhile Morgan MacDonald and Jennah Barry wrote a couple of surprise verses to the song So It Goes. What a fun weekend.

New T-Shirts!  Podcast

Inspired by the song So It Goes, you too can root for poor hipster Sam as he's left alone on a bridge, or for a little banjo girl as she ditches him in the dark. Get 'em at one of my upcoming shows (Full Circle Fest in NS this weekend, Café Namasthé in Ormstown on June 28th, or at Theatre Ste. Catherine in Montreal on July 13th) OR you can order them directly from my bandcamp page! Design by Ariana Shadlyn.
