(Halifax, NS) Rose Cousins will join headliners Waxahatchee, and Kaia Kater on the In the Dead of Winter Festival lineup, replacing Terra Lightfoot who cannot perform due to unforeseen circumstances. The annual IDOW Festival runs January 18, 19, and 20, 2018. Rose Cousins will perform twice on Saturday, January 20, 2018: at the Carleton Music Bar, at 10:30pm, and Songcircle #3 with Kaia Kater 7pm - 8pm at Good Robot Brewing Company.
A native of Prince Edward Island, Rose Cousins lives in Halifax. She deeply values being part of multiple music communities, and is constantly fueled by collaboration. Cousins’ 2012 album We Have Made A Spark celebrated her Boston community and featured a cast of musicians Cousins had known and played music with for a decade. It won a JUNO Award, three East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, and made picks/best of lists in USA Today, NPR Music and Oprah Magazine. Her music has found its way into several TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy.

ONE WEEK LEFT FOR OUR INDIE-GOGO CAMPAIGN
We've passed the $10,000 mark in our campaign and have just under one weeks to go! Amelia and I can't thank you all enough for helping us spread the word about this project. We're excited to get started in January and to be able to share the process with you. None of this would be possible without your contributions and support and every little bit makes a big difference!
As part of a Facebook contest, I recently recorded a cover of Amelia's song "Scattered and Small" with the help of my good friend Don Brownrigg. Don will be acting as our Artistic Director for the documentary project! Here is the video of our cover, hope you enjoy!
