Suzanne de Bussac
Suzanne is a Calgary based singer-songwriter who performs original music in the art pop/rock genre. She accompanies herself on the piano, guitar, and accordion, and performs both as a solo artist and with a band. The live performances are passionate and filled with alacrity, shrouding sometimes dense lyrical content that speaks to topics of mental health, in a wonderland of jaunty melodies and playful, well seasoned musicianship. Perhaps a combination of Neko Case, Kate Bush and Ben Folds.
Cindy Paul performs all original songs from her 2 International multi-award nominated albums. She plays guitar, drum, harmonica and Native American flute combining her rich vocals and rhythms for a melodic and insightful journey through your imagination and into your heart. Cindy is available to play solo, trio, or with her full band which includes two of Edmonton’s finest musicians, Gord Matthews and Garry Lee. Fancy Dancer Ayla Modeste will join Cindy Paul for a few of her songs.
Haitian-born poet, psalmist and spoken word artist Medgine Mathurin is a person for whom the love of language and the alchemy of words is second nature. Her multi-lingual upbringing (french, creole, english) not only prompted her to begin experimenting with the potential and magic of language, but naturally compelled her into a deep love of poetry. Medgine is among the rare and necessary category of artist who understands the inextricable relationship between a poet’s life and words. Medgine is currently working on her first collection of poetry.
Medgine will also be performing in Words Unzipped on Thursday, March 14 at 7:00pm.
