Kathleen Edwards

Annex Courtyard

Alton Mill Arts Centre and Noisemaker present seven-time JUNO Award nominee and Canadian songwriting legend Kathleen Edwards.  

An Ottawa native, Kathleen Edwards became a star in the Americana community in the 2000s on the basis of her emotionally incisive songs and sweetly smoky voice. Edwards' lyrics are evocative and direct in their take on relationships and the trials of everyday lives, and her music, which varies from quietly contemplative and keenly boisterous to suit her mood, is an effective match for her material. Edwards' second album, 2005's Back To Me, was a critical success that revealed her talent to listeners outside Canada, and 2012's Voyageur, which followed a relationship from meeting to breakup, was a commercial success as well as a hit with her fans.

Food and bar by Barley Vine Rail starting at 6:00. Doors open at 7 pm.
