Labour Songs Have Never Sounded Better: Maria Dunn Joins The Mariposa Line-UpPosted on
Often compared to Woody Guthrie for her keen social awareness and unvarnished tunes about the lives of working people, Maria Dunn draws deeply on the folk tradition of storytelling through song.
Melding North American roots music with her Scottish-Irish heritage, her music celebrates the resilience and grace of regular folk.
Her recordings have been received with high critical praise including Piece by Piece (2012), a collection of songs about the resilience and grace of immigrant women working at a Canadian clothing factory over its 93-year history.
Labour songs have a special place in folk music, and this gifted singer-songwriter, guitarist and accordionist, does the genre great justice.
