Delighted to announce that Maria Dunn is once more with me in the studio – on Travels With My Auntie Liz Tues 26 th Sept 2017– to play a few tunes, tell a few tales and bring us up to speed on her tour in Scotland! from 8-9pm
Maria was born in Scotland, she moved as a child with her family to Ontario. She has made Edmonton, Alberta her base since the 1990s. As a child she studied classical piano and she later studied psychology at the University of Alberta. From 1987 to 2000, she hosted a weekly folk music program on the U of A’s campus/community radio, CJSR. Immersing herself in folk music in this way, she gravitated towards writing her own well crafted songs , with a good tale to tell!
Maria has been a busy lady this summer giging around ‘local’ festivals all over Canada from Vancouver Island Music Fest – Courtenay, BC / Pigeon Lake Music Festival (brand new this year!)/ Mulhurst Bay, AB / Live From the Rock – Red Rock, ON / Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Fest – Salmon Arm, BC
