Welcome to the Coal Shed Music Festival’s Featured Artist Pages
Here you will find information about the artists who will be performing at the festival this year. Each week we will try to update this area with new profiles of the performing artists, so come back often. At the same time we will maintain an archive of previous featured artists.
Another of this week’s featured artists:
In 2015, Lynnea Rose teamed up with award winning producers Tom Terrell (Modern Grass) and Karl Falkenham (CBC) to record her sophomore album Rocking Chair which earned her a 2017 Music Nova Scotia Award nomination for Americana Recording.
Born and raised in Granville Beach, Nova Scotia as an eighth generation Armstrong, it’s easy to hear where her musical inspirations lie. Her deep connection to her Celtic heritage and East Coast is clearly evident in songs like Fundy Shore, By the Sea and Bad Winter. .
Stylistically, Lynnea Rose has been compared to Alison Krauss, with her song-writing reminiscent of Brandi Carlile and Gillian Welch. Learn more about Lynnea Rose at Lynnea Rose
