Award-winning Amelia Curran will perform Saturday at Princeton Coffeehouse
PRINCETON — Canadian singer-songwriter Amelia Curran will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Princeton Coffeehouse. Her appearance is the last show of the Coffeehouse’s 2012-13 season.
Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Curran started playing guitar and writing songs as a teenager. She eventually dropped out of college in order to busk on the streets of St. John’s. She released her first album in 2000 and since then has released four more. In 2010 she received a prestigious Juno Award in the category of Roots and Traditional Album of the Year. She currently lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The National Post describes Curran’s music as “a bit like Leonard Cohen being channeled in a dusty saloon by Patsy Cline.” Her lyrics have been described as “evocative” by Spinner Canada who, referring to Curran’s song “The Mistress,” wrote that “like the best poets, Curran packs so much meaning into each line that the listener barely has time to register each clever lyric before the next zinger comes along.”
