Introducing: Allison Crowe and Band

Serving up timeless music and alliterative predictability, “The Friday Morning Markout” on Radio CHMR celebrates “Allison Crowe August” – and, come Spring, “Allison Crowe April” @  Program Host DJ FanBoy Mark Jabroni’s joined in-studio this week by: Allison Crowe (vocals, piano, guitar, fiddle, bodhran) and bandmates Céline Sawchuk (cello, vocals) and Dave Baird (bass, vocals).

"No matter where Allison Crowe is in this world, that voice, that conviction, it crosses all borders. She’s one of those rare artists that fits into any culture, any community because she is who she is – an incredible talent," observes Jeff Pitcher, Artistic Director, Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador.

Home in Corner Brook, NL Allison’s writing a book of prose poetry, “Fluttering”, and composing songs for a new album, “Rare Birds” (her 22nd release on Rubenesque Records). In 2017 she’s returned to Cow Head for a sixth year as Musical Director of “Newfoundland Vinyl”, a rollicking hit at TNL’s Gros Morne Theatre Festival.

On the road, concerts blending rock, folk, Canadiana, Celtic, jazz, and roots, across Europe and North America commingle with other adventures – including Allison’s cameo in the Hollywood Superman blockbuster “Man of Steel” and touring as featured singer/pianist with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet.

In league now, Allison, Céline and Dave unite soon with Sarah White (mandolin, ukulele, bouzouki, vocals) & Keelan Purchase (accordion, 12-string guitar, bodhran, harmonica). "Soulful. Alive. Joyous. Grievous. Real, true, music is what I want to make," says bandleader Allison. And that’s just what happens.
