About the event
Madeleine Roger is a folk singer-songwriter from Winnipeg, Canada. While skillfully accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, it is her artistry as a songwriter and storyteller that can silence a room, uniting her lyrical prowess with breathtaking melodies that linger long after they are sung. Her critically-acclaimed debut album Cottonwood combines the elegant storytelling of folk traditions with the grounded vibe of roots music. It is a collection of songs that reflect on femininity and equality, the majesty of the wilderness, and the beautiful awkwardness of trying to love another person. Cottonwood reached the No. 1 spot on the National folk/roots charts in Canada, and also saw Madeleine nominated for both “English Songwriter of the Year” at the 2020 Canadian Folk Music Awards and “Producer of the Year” at the 2019 Western Canadian Music Awards.
Laren Main, a young local musician, is impressing audiences wherever he performs.
His love of music comes from being in a musical family where he was constantly surrounded by different sounds. The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash are also big influences. He loves rock, folk and country as well as other genres of music. He would like to try and make a living out of music or at least keep it as a skill he will always use.
Laren's performance on October 21 will itself be worth the price of admission and a fitting opening for the amazing Madeleine Roger.
