The headliner for this show, which goes at Conexus Arts Centre on Friday Sept. 12, is Jann Arden. There’s probably not too many people in Regina who aren’t at least somewhat familiar with Arden considering that she’s been a solid performer on stages across Canada and around the world for over 20 years now. So I thought I’d shine a bit of light on the back-up act Rose Cousins.
Like Arden, Cousins inhabits the singer-songwriter realm. She hails from Halifax, and has been active as a musician since 2002. Her most recent album, We Have Made A Spark won her Contemporary Singer of the Year at the 2013 Canadian Folk Music Awards and a Juno for Best Solo Roots & Traditional Album of the Year.
Tickets for tomorrow night’s concert are $49.50-$85.50, and the curtain should rise shortly after 8 p.m. To give you a sense of Cousins’ talent, here’s video from 2013 of her performing the song “Stray Birds”:
