“Peppard’s music is steeped in the sea.
She is bringing the rich Maritime past to LIFE in song.”
A 2016 note to you from Rosalee:
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 Portraits", 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 dulcimers. Rosalee connects listeners with our poignant, "living" past. She colours each show with her exciting interpretations of traditional and popular songs we all know and love, and polishes each concert with the light of laughter and fun.
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.
