Hamilton’s Shealagh Rose heads east for our Dinner At The Carleton series on Friday, August 16th. Live music starts at 6 PM and, as always with this series, it’s FREE!
“Shealagh has a writer’s eye, a deep creative spirit, an artist’s gift for emotional connection, and a singer’s musical ears.” –Rik Emmett (Triumph)
Originally from Hamilton, Ontario, Shealagh Rose is a folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who blends storytelling lyrics with sweeping melodic lines and open tunings. With influences from Joni Mitchell to Stevie Nicks, Shealagh brings new levels of emotion to folk music.
She began performing under the name Shealagh Rose in January 2016, and released her debut EP Island in July 2016. With the release of Island, she brings a new feel to a classic genre. Lush with soulful vocals, addicting progressions, and beautiful string sections, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie folk anthems.
She was a regional finalist (top 10 in Hamilton) in CBC’s 2017 Searchlight competition with her song Dream. Shealagh is currently based out of Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area where she works towards her sophomore release.
