30 Fingal Street, Brunswick Heads NSW 2483
We’re thrilled to welcome Catherine MacLellan, one of Canadian folk music’s true gems, to the Brunswick Picture House!
Catherine’s highly anticipated seventh album, COYOTE, was released in October 2019, and is a travelogue through heartbreak, loss and the joy of life.
COYOTE contains 14 songs that are reflective, heartbreaking and hopeful. They were all recorded and produced by Catherine at her home studio in Prince Edward Island. “It’s a dream home, a big old farm house with a long history of music. In the early days, there were big kitchen parties here, with someone always rocking the piano and people square dancing. When I moved here, I really got the sense the house wanted things to be happening here, and music to be played.” COYOTE adds some of that traditional East Coast instrumentation of accordions, fiddles and bouzouki. The songs touch on themes of change, vulnerability, and letting yourself be seen; the good, the bad, the pretty, and the ugly.
Though the acclaim for Catherine’s own work was already significant, it reached new levels when she took home a Juno Award in 2015 for her standout album, The Raven’s Sun. This was an intimate look into her musical work with long-time collaborator, Chris Gauthier. Catherine has also been recognised with multiple East Coast Music Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards, and Music PEI Awards.
Catherine MacLellan is a musician’s musician, respected by her peers since releasing Dark Dream Midnight, her first solo album, in 2004. As with many performers, Catherine feels most at home on stage. That moment of connection is what matters most, “Perhaps we don’t have the same story but we all share the same emotions and many of the same experiences. Being able to share my songs and stories with people and finding that connection point is what it’s all about for me”. Going to a Catherine MacLellan show feels much like catching up with an old friend, having those long-heartfelt conversations that mean so much.
