Since moving to the farm, we have had the privilege of hosting some of our favourite musical artists for concerts.  We provide the venue, a place to sleep, and great home-cooked food, and the artists put on a fantastic show and have a chance to relax between big shows while on tour.

Madeleine Roger is a folk singer-songwriter from Winnipeg, Canada. While skillfully accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, it is her artistry as a songwriter and storyteller that can silence a room, uniting her lyrical prowess with breathtaking melodies that linger long after they are sung. Her critically-acclaimed debut album Cottonwood combines the elegant storytelling of folk traditions with the grounded vibe of roots music. It is a collection of songs that reflect on femininity and equality, the majesty of the wilderness, and the beautiful awkwardness of trying to love another person. Cottonwood quickly garnered acclaim, reaching the No. 1 spot on the National folk/roots charts in Canada. It also saw Madeleine nominated for both “English Songwriter of the Year” at the 2020 Canadian Folk Music Awards and “Producer of the Year” at the 2019 Western Canadian Music Awards.

She has toured extensively across Canada and Europe sharing her music live at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, Canmore Folk Festival, Vancouver Island Music Festival, Stan Rogers Folk Festival, Summerfolk Festival of Arts and Crafts, Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Festival, Calgary Folk Club, and Festival Du Voyageur, among others.

She recently recorded her sophomore album, Nerve, with producer Josh Kaufman (Josh Ritter, Bob Weir, The National, The Hold Steady, Hiss Golden Messenger, Bonny Light Horseman)  which will be released in August 2024. It is a deeply personal body of work examining every nook and cranny of love, loss, and forgiveness.
 

“Madeleine's excellent songwriting, ear for traditional-sounding melodies, fabulous voice, and skillful guitar playing give them a timeless quality, though they speak directly to our time.” 

– Stan Rogers Folk Festival

 

“A glimpse into the machinations of someone who is attentive to the world around her.” – Exclaim! 

 

“Madeleine Roger is a folk/roots tour-de-force. Driven and grounded with both eyes on the horizon, there are few artists with as much gumption as Madeleine Roger, while maintaining old-world compassion and an unbending smile. Her fantastical folk songs are buoyant and relatable, with warm soft themes and boundless connective tissue.”  – BreakOut West
