2017 Juno-nominated songwriter Maria Dunn draws deeply on the folk tradition of storytelling through song. Melding North American roots music with her Scottish-Irish heritage, she sings about the resilience and grace of “ordinary” people, past and present. Her latest release Gathering (Nominee – 2017 Juno Award, Nominee – 2017 WCMA; Winner – 2016 Edmonton Music Prize), is a collection of songs inspired by love—the love of family, community and humanity that connects us and fires our actions to make the world a better place (produced by Shannon Johnson, 2007 Juno-winner with her band The McDades for Bloom).

Maria’s previous five independent recordings include: Piece By Piece (2013 Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee), The Peddler (2009 CFMA Nominee), and For A Song (2002 Juno Nominee).

Edmonton-based, Maria performs at folk festivals, theatres and conferences across Canada, in Europe (UK Tour 2017, 2015; Netherlands 2011, 2010) and the USA.

…remarkable singer-songwriter, think of her as a distaff Woody Guthrie. –Mike Ross, Edmonton Sun

A wonderful collection of new songs from one of our most important and vital songwriters… Essential listening, then, this Gathering. –Roddy Campbell, Penguin Eggs Magazine
