This week, In the Dead of Winter announced that Rose Cousins will be joining headliners Waxahatchee and Kaia Kater on the festival line-up. Rose Cousins will be replacing Terra Lightfoot, who will not be performing due to mysterious and unforeseen circumstances.
Rose Cousins will be performing twice during the annual festival, with her first appearance being on Saturday, 20 January 2018 at the Carleton Music Bar at 10:30pm and then again as part of festival’s Songcircle with Kaia Kater from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Good Robot Brewing Company.
“A native of Prince Edward Island, Rose Cousins lives in Halifax. She deeply values being part of multiple music communities and is constantly fueled by collaboration. Cousins’ 2012 album We Have Made A Spark celebrated her Boston community and featured a cast of musicians Cousins had known and played music with for a decade. It won a JUNO Award, three East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize and made picks/best of lists in USA Today, NPR Music and Oprah Magazine. Her music has found its way into several TV shows, including Grey’s Anatomy.”
The news of Cousins joining the festival roster follows shortly after the recent additions of The Weather Station, Valerie, and The Franklin Brewery Boys. They will all be joining the previously announced festival line-up that includes Brooklyn Doran, Lydia Persaud, Stewart Legere, Fiver, Emily Rockarts, Dance Movie, Palehound, Owen Meany’s Batting Stance, Nick Ferrio, Dana Sipos, Leanne Hoffman, Camille Delean, Meaghan Blanchard, Kaia Kater, Corey Gulkin, Waxahatchee, and Cassie Josephine and Gabrielle Minikin as well as several combinations of the above that will be engaging in the festival’s songwriter circles.
In The Dead Of Winter will take place across Halifax on January 18th, 19th, and 20th. Tickets and passes are currently on sale. Full schedule and links to purchase tickets are below.
