Call

Maria Dunn

Occurs on Saturday January 28 2023

Approximate running time: 2 hours

A twice Juno-nominated songwriter, Maria continues to celebrate stories of resilience and grace through songs of family, community, humanity and the love that fires our actions to make the world a better place. The songs on Joyful Banner Blazing range from narrative songs honouring working people (Heart in Hand, Waltzing with the Angels) to contemporary tales of unsung heroes (Joyful Banner Blazing inspired by a lifelong dedicated community activist) to universal connections and moments in family life (Don’t Think You Are Forgotten For A Moment, Love Carries Me, Ontario Song). Musicians performing with Maria for this celebration will include the Maria Dunn Trio: Shannon Johnson (violin) and Jeremiah McDade (saxophone, whistles, guitar), members of Juno Award-winning band The McDades, along with special guests from the studio recording. The ensemble performs Maria’s thought-provoking, hope-mongering songs in rich and varied arrangements with compelling vocals and superb musicianship.
