Four nuns traveling by canoe toward an unknown destination, a small-town stenographer crowned beauty queen, a landlocked mermaid, and a reckless runaway with one true wish - these are some of the characters that inhabit the songs of Winnipeg singer/songwriter Christine Fellows.
Spin Magazine’s 4-star review of Fellows’ 2007 album, Nevertheless, hails her writing as “…slyly unpredictable, rarely self-serious, and unabashedly tuneful.”
Throughout 2011, she will be touring, backed by Reliquary/Reliquaire collaborators, and cellists Leanne Zacharias and Alex McMaster.
Fellows often works with artists from all disciplines to create performance works, scores and spectacles.
She was Composer-in-Residence at Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers (2007-08),
Artist-in-Residence at Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum in Winnipeg (2009),
and Dawson City Music Festival’s Songwriter-in-Residence (2011).
