LYNNEA ROSE is charming her way into the hearts of folk, Celtic and country fans alike. Since the release of her debut album “Lynnea Rose” in 2013, she has graced audiences all across Canada, sharing with them her beautiful voice, heartfelt songwriting and genuine stage presence. Born and raised in Granville Beach, Nova Scotia as an eighth generation Armstrong, it’s easy to hear where her musical inspirations lie. Her deep connection to her Celtic heritage and East Coast is clearly evident in songs like “Fundy Shore”, “Where I am From” and “Bad Winter”. Stylistically, Lynnea Rose has been compared to Alison Krauss and The Rankins, with her song-writing remeniscent of Sarah Harmer and Gillian Welch.
Nearly 4 years after the release of ‘City Ghosts’, THE MODERN GRASS are back on the scene with their fourth studio album, ‘Payday’. Produced by award winning duo Tom Terrell and Karl Falkenham, Payday is an homage to the simplicity and modesty of traditional music and living, Modern Grass style. This colorful and polarized collection of original and traditional songs taps into the rich vein of North American roots music, songwriting and musicianship. Payday features a special cast of guest musicians, curated not only for their sounds but for their critical places in the lineage of roots music.
Payday, as per usual for the MG, is paradoxical. Featuring Terrell’s clever and down home songwriting as well as unique renditions and twisted interpretations of folk, country, gospel, blues and old time classics. While the genre seemingly remains in flux, the MG paints a coherent, vibrant picture that is everything we’ve come to expect from the grass, and more.The latest incarnation of the Modern Grass features original members Tom Terrell, Andrew Sneddon & Adam Pye and debuts the fine banjo picking of Nova Scotia native, Ryan Dillman. With musical guests Brittany Haas, Joe Walsh, John Reischman, Donald Maclennan & Ray Legere.
