The Muse Presents Lydia Mainville & Sarah Kierstead

  • The Muse 86 Regent Street Fredericton, NB, E3B 3W4 Canada (map)

Two major talents share our stage and we couldn't be more thrilled

Lydia Mainville is a cellist, singer-songwriter and fiddler's daughter from Darling's Island, NB. At once an innovator and traditionalist, she creates experimental folk music steeped in classical and celtic roots. "Mainville's music is like water — ebbing and flowing in rich cello loops which create a dreamlike tableau for her ethereal, almost angelic, vocals." — The Waterloo Region Record"If I had to pick from any [Shivering Songs] festival-wide highlights, she’d be the one. Equally disarming and effortlessly talented, her gentle voice and haunting looped cello made me forget I even existed.” — Grid City MagazineThis will also be a night to celebrate of one of our own, Sarah Kierstead. Sarah is not only a treasured member of our staff, but a talented artist in a number of disciplines. She has the voice of an angel, and we're happy to provide the stage for her debut. We couldn't be more proud.
