“Peppard’s music is steeped in the sea.
She is bringing the rich Maritime past to LIFE in song.”
One-Of-A-Kind: Rosalee Peppard is the only maritime Canadian musical oral historian whose focus is transcribing Women's stories into song.
Nova Scotian, Rosalee Peppard and her effervescent art are truly unique: A maritime musical oral Herstorian, Rosalee collects and transcribes an authentic living echo of the voices of maritime-Canadian women she interviews and researches. She crafts their stories into song, and shares them powerfully in her “Hauntingly beautiful live performance”.
Through a variety of musical voices - from Folk to Blues to Opera - themes of Love, Literacy, Triumph over loss and shame, Heritage and humour, all soar on Rosalee’s shimmering voice, self-accompanied on guitars and mountain dulcimer. Rosalee connects listeners with a poignant, Living past and reminds us of its "presents". She colours each show with traditional and popular songs which are generously "peppered" with wit!
Rosalee loves to share the secret of these voices and has great joy in teaching the history, literary and music composition, in her concerts, or her speaking/singing presentations, as well as vocal and writing workshops.
