Join us as Rosemary Lawton and Ellen Power entertain us with their fine renditions of traditional music. Expect some fantastic fiddling and singing.
Last summer they were the featured performers with Beyond the Overpass theatre company in Twillingate, Rosemary Lawton and Ellen Power are bringing their unique sounds back to their hometown of St. John’s. A classically-trained violinist, Rosemary has also had a lifelong affinity for the folk music of Newfoundland. She combines her talents with Ellen, a singer and storyteller whose performances are rooted in the aural tradition of Placentia Bay. Many of the duo’s arrangements are based on ethereal vocal harmonies inspired by the island’s tradition of unaccompanied ballad singing. Rosemary and Ellen aim to bring new life to the forgotten folk songs and classic fiddle tunes of Newfoundland.
