The Cumberland Museum presents Maria Dunn in concert as part of their “People’s Music Series.”
This special concert event takes place at the Cumberland United Church on March 22.
This is an exciting event for the Friends of the Museum, who have been looking forward to bringing Maria back to the Cumberland for years.
A storyteller through song, Maria Dunn combines North American folk and country music with the influences of her Celtic heritage. Born in Scotland and raised in Ontario and Alberta, she writes songs inspired by historical and contemporary characters, capturing their struggles and triumphs in her lyrics. Maria has been called a “…remarkable singer-songwriter; think of her as a distaff Woody Guthrie.” — Mike Ross, Edmonton Sun.
It’s not an easy thing to draw smart, compelling songs from historical sources, or to give contemporary experience a timeless resonance. One of Alberta’s finest musical storytellers, Maria Dunn, accomplishes both.
Maria is joined by violinist Shannon Johnson of the McDades fame for this special concert event.
Tickets are only $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Once again, the People’s Museum of Cumberland is holding 20 youth tickets (18 and under) for free but these tickets must be reserved in advance, as they will be released for sale at the door.
Proceeds from this concert event go towards the Cumberland Museum’s 2012 Workers History Project.
