In and Out of the Shadows

Driven by a voice that evokes raw emotion, Rose Cousins’ music bravely explores the shadowy corners of the heart. Just as her songs embrace sadness, pain, and longing for all that love offers – its simplicity as well as its complexity – these are counterbalanced in her performances by Cousins’ quick, wry wit between songs.

A native of PEI, she lives in Halifax, deeply values being part of multiple music communities and is constantly fueled by collaboration. Her 2012 album “We Have Made A Spark” won a JUNO Award, 3 East Coast Music Awards, and a Canadian Folk Music Award. Her 2014 EP, “Stray Birds,” among other meaningful covers, includes a moving interpretation of Gordon Lightfoot’s “If You Could Read My Mind.” Her music has found its way into several TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Rookie Blue, Heartland & Drop Dead Diva.

Rose releases a new album ‘NATURAL CONCLUSION” in February 2017 – recorded with Grammy award-winning producer Joe Henry. This appearance at the Confederation Centre will be her PEI album release show and will feature a full band.

“Some voices hit you hard from first blush and this is one of them.” Exclaim!
“Stark, impeccably written songs … elegantly understated …” NOW Toronto ★★★★★

Return of the Mittentime Revue

After a four year hiatus to spend time touring, releasing records, winning awards, making movies, writing books, and undertaking a host of new projects, The Mittentime Revue crew is reuniting to bring P.E.I. the kind of artistic Christmas pageantry that only it can present.

Performing for one night only on December 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the Homburg Theatre, the Revue features a who’s who of the East Coast Music scene. Jenn Grant, Rose Cousins, Catherine MacLellan, Tanya Davis, Dan Ledwell, Patrick Ledwell, and Kinley Dowling join forces for a rousing festivity of words and music, laughs and antics, dashing theatrics, and holiday cheer.

Born out of friendship and a shared love of performing, The Mittentime Revue kicked off in 2007 to a sold-out crowd and instant critical and audience acclaim. A five year run solidified its reputation as a season highlight before the team took a break to follow other creative pursuits. Well, pursuit will bring them together for Christmas, eager to dust off the decorations and present the newest version of their hit show.

Said Ann Thurlow in her Guardian review for the last edition of the production, “The Mittentime Revue is exactly like the very best Christmas at home. Except it’s on a stage and there are no dishes. I love this show and I wouldn’t miss it.” Her review continues, “…wrapping a blanket around us that could warm the chill of a thousand winter months.”

Join these celebrated Islanders or a gleeful reunion in P.E.I.’s premiere performance hall. Expect creative renditions of your favourite carols, original poems and stories written just for this occasion, and, of course, the best holiday medley yet. Come ready for serenades and escapades, for the humour this dynamic group so easily expresses – charming, candid, infectious.

The Mittentime Revue is presented as part of Sobeys LIVE @ the Centre. This one-night only performance is sponsored by Hansen Electric. Tickets for this and other seasonal concerts are available at the box office at (902) 566-1267, toll free at 1-800-565-0278, or online at confederationcentre.com.
