UPCOMING! Shannon Rose and the thorns

UPCOMING Shannon Rose & The Thorns at Casa Del Popolo  |  Saturday July 20th. 

This Ottawa native is a music workhorse. In 2012 she released four Eps and has been touring non-stop since. So far this year she's performed over twenty shows, opening for such artist as Craig Cardiff, Christina Martin, and notably, local folk band a friend to Hot Soupe, Erik Lind & The Orchard. 

With shows lined up in Wakefield, Quebec, followed by Wakefield, Owen Sound, and Kemptville, Ontario, she'll be back the island to our multi-lingual town on a hill the Saturday after next as her final warm up before heading to the Ottawa Folk Fest in which she'll be amongst the like of headliners Neil Young, Patti Smith and Vampire Weekend.

She seems like a sweetheart. Her bio is very homely with odes to her cat, her writing process, her education ( English Lit.), and her husband and musical partner, filmmaker and guitarist Steve Matylewicz. Her music is lively and innocent, with subtle arrangements that make way for Rose's endearing voice.

Check out "Wild Wind" and tell me it doesn't brighten your day. Note the sax bit at the end.
