Maria Dunn

A true preserver of the spirit of folk music, past Juno and CFMA-nominee Maria Dunn is often compared to Woody Guthrie for her keen social awareness and unvarnished songs about ordinary people. In 2016, she released her sixth independent album Gathering, songs of courage and struggle, local and global (produced by Shannon Johnson of Juno-winning band The McDades).
In addition to developing and touring four multimedia people's history shows, Packingtown, GWG: Piece by Piece, Troublemakers and On The River (with Asani, Edmonton-based Indigenous women's trio) with videographer Don Bouzek, Maria performs (solo, duo, trio) at theatres, folk clubs, conferences and festivals across Canada, the USA and Europe. Based in Edmonton (Alberta), she has been featured on Canadian TV, CBC National Radio, CKUA Alberta Radio, BBC Radio Scotland, and her original songs published in Sing Out! and Penguin Eggs magazines and the Rise Again songbook (2015). Other artists, including Niamh Parsons, The Outside Track and Bob Bossin, have recorded her original songs.
