The Inspiration Behind Celtic Blues-
The inspiration for this project/band comes from the front porch, where the sun sits high, pouring it's heat on you. The sweat drips from your brow and down the back of you neck. You sit sipping at a cool drink, while watching the dust rise in the breeze, as insects dance in the sunlight. Someone picks up the fiddle and starts playing a tune. Then, soon, the rest of the instruments start to fall into their places. I believe this is how most of our roots songs came to be. Celtic and Blues are no exception. Now with how fast this world is changing, how do we tell our stories and still hold on to our roots. For me I hear Celtic and Blues together for that is my roots.

Dawn Desmarais, From Windsor, On., Dawn, a Metis artist, has been a vocalist for 20 yrs. Her repertoire expands into blues, celtic, bluegrass, country and roots/folk. She has performed across Canada and a good part of the US, as well as being a studio vocalist in Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary. Dawn picked up the mountain dulcimer 8yrs ago, and began songwriting to expand on her music. It was just over 10yrs ago that she picked up the bodhran and is now finding the mandolin the newest addition.
After her release of her first album, she has done a CD release tour across Canada, including playing at festivals and special events.
'UpRooted' is their 2nd CD and it will be released soon!!!
