Amelia Curran

No pick of the day today. Instead I’ll shine some light on a show that’s happening at the Artful Dodger on Thursday. Headlining is Newfoundland-born, Halifax-based singer-songwriter Amelia Curran. She’s touring in support of her latest album, her fifth since she began recording in 2000, called Spectators which came out in October.

Backing her up at the Dodger will be Joe Nolan. To give you a taste, here’s video from a couple of years ago of Curran performing her song “The Mistress” from her 2009 album Hunter Hunter:


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.
