A Maritimer through and through, Lynnea Rose was born in Nova Scotia and raised by Nova Scotians who were born and raised in Nova Scotia — you get the point. Rose’s songs reminisce about long winters and hard times both past and present and explore the paradox of an eighth generation Maritimer; The familiarity of a longstanding traditional and cultural belonging and a desire for change.
Her new album is not merely a collection of solid, trad infused folk songs, ‘Rocking Chair’ is a musical collaboration with some of the country’s finest and freakiest musicians and a giant step in a new direction. Rose, along with producer Tom Terrell, have assembled a bizarre and brilliant group of musicians and clearly given them free reign. The result is a diverse album; obviously fronted and held together by the unmistakeable east coast country girl and granddaughter of a fisherman but infused with bona fide bluegrass, jazz manouche, country & folk sounds and sensibilities.
The Modern Grass makes original music fueled by passion, ingenuity and a love and appreciation for traditional forms of art & music. The Modern Grass was born in 2011 and have since released 3 award winning albums. The MG Be – bops, doo- wops, and yeehaws it’s way through roots music freely, setting the mood for real life rambling, gambling and heartbreaking storytales. The MG has toured North America extensively and relentlessly. An array of exceptional musicians have played and recorded with the Modern Grass over the years.
