Singer/Songwriter Rosalee Peppard will perform at the Elizabeth Bishop Festival

Nova Scotian, Rosalee Peppard (www.rosalee.ca) and her effervescent art are truly unique: a maritime women’s musical oral historian, Rosalee collects and transcribes an authentic living echo of the voices of Canadian women she interviews and researches. She crafts their stories into “song portraits” and shares them passionately and powerfully in her “hauntingly beautiful live performance” (Halifax Chronicle Herald).
Rosalee has received two Dr. Helen Creighton Folklore Research awards and a Colchester Heritage Award for her work published on three CDs: “No Place Like Home,” “Legacy,” and “Voices.” Her song, “Elizabeth Bishop” (on “Voices” 2011) was created for EB100.

Rosalee tours internationally and has just returned from Belfast where she was invited to present her “LIVING TITANIC — A Musical Memoir Of Atlantic Canada’s Only Survivor: Hilda Mary Slayter” at the 2015 International Titanic Convention.

Rosalee will be performing for the first time at the Elizabeth Bishop House during the morning of the festival.
