A twice Juno-nominated songwriter, Maria continues to celebrate stories of resilience and grace through songs of family, community, humanity and the love that fires our actions to make the world a better place. Her new album Joyful Banner Blazing was #1 for four weeks on CKUA. The songs range from narrative songs honouring working people (Heart in Hand, Waltzing with the Angels) to contemporary tales of unsung heroes (Joyful Banner Blazing inspired by a lifelong dedicated community activist) to universal connections and moments in family life (Don’t Think You Are Forgotten For A Moment, Love Carries Me, Ontario Song). Come celebrate Maria’s special one-year anniversary of the release of Joyful Banner Blazing at Festival Place.
Musicians performing with Maria will include Shannon Johnson (violin) and Jeremiah McDade (saxophone, whistles, guitar), members of Juno Award-winning band The McDades, along with special guests. The ensemble performs Maria’s thought-provoking, hope-mongering songs in rich and varied arrangements with compelling vocals and superb musicianship.
