Amelia Curran

Hailing from Newfoundland, Amelia Curran released her first album in 2000. She’s since gone on to release six more albums, the last being They Promised You Mercy in 2014. In addition to her music career, Curran is also a playwright and actor who has done some work on the fringe circuit.

Curran kind of falls into the indie folk/rock category, and on Tuesday March 8 she’s in town to play a show as part of the Regina Folk Festival Concert Series.

You can get the details on the RFF website, but the gig’s at the Exchange at 8 p.m. There’s an opening set by Scott Richmond, and tickets are $20 advance and $25 door. Here’s the video for the first single off her 2014 album, a song called “I Am the Night”:

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
