ANNE MURRAY CENTRE ANNOUNCES MARITIME MUSIC FEST
The Anne Murray Centre has received funding from the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage’s 150 Forward Fund to help produce The Maritime Music Fest this summer.
The Festival, which will run July 26-29 in Springhill, NS, will honour Anne Murray’s legacy as one of Canada’s most successful performing artists with a four day celebration of Maritime musicians and music. The Festival will feature performances from some of the Maritimes best known musicians and provide a showcase for the next generation of East Coast musical artists.
“I'm so pleased that the Anne Murray Centre will be working with Nova Scotia's 150 Forward Fund to present The Maritime Music Festival this summer,” Anne Murray said. “Our East Coast has always been a hotbed of musical talent and it's great that Springhill will have the opportunity to host & showcase a mix of the Maritimes' best musical artists and some very exciting up and coming talent."
The 150 Forward Fund provides opportunities for Nova Scotians to create, promote and participate in local and regional events and programs that will build a sense of pride in Nova Scotia during the celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, which leads to stronger, richer communities and a more vibrant province.
Full details of the Festival will be announced later this month but it will feature a dinner theatre celebrating Anne Murray’s career, a Songwriters’ Circle, a songwriting workshop for youth and a daylong concert featuring East Coast musicians.
Anne Murray Centre Board Chair, Bill Munro said, “The Anne Murray Centre is excited to play a role in celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday and happy to build on Anne’s legacy. The Maritimes has a long history of producing top quality singers and songwriters and we are thrilled to shine a spotlight on them.”
“We are very grateful to the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage for making this event possible,” he added.
The Anne Murray Centre recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia and is pleased to work in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage to develop and promote our cultural resources for all Nova Scotians.
Anne’s best-selling and critically acclaimed autobiography, All of Me, will be released in paperback, in audio format on CD and as an audio book download on October 26, 2010! Anne’s memoirs were originally released in the fall of 2009.
Award winning singer, entertainer and best-selling author, Anne can now add narrator to her list of talents. All of Me , the audio version, tells the story of Canada’s beloved songbird in her own words. Anne has included bonus stories, not found in the printed version, as well as music clips of some of her best known hits and never before heard, live concert recordings of a few of her favourite songs.
In the revealing autobiography, the Canadian icon tells, for the first time, the story of her astonishing forty-year career in show business – from her humble origins in the tragedy-plagued coal-mining town of Springhill, Nova Scotia, to her arrival on the world stage with her first gold record in 1970 and her subsequent string of top-selling hits. Written with veteran journalist Michael Posner, All of Me is a candid retrospective of the extraordinary success achieved and the price that had to be paid.
Critical praise for the book included:
"Warm, straightforward and candid… with low-key, self-deprecating humour and surprising honesty." — The Globe and Mail
"Anne Murray's new memoir blows the lid off her image as the fresh-faced all-Canadian singing sensation.... A fast-paced and revealing autobiography." — Winnipeg Free Press
"Murray is the queen of Nova Scotia.... The notoriously private singer finally opens up about her astounding life in All of Me." — The Salt Lake Tribune

Information on where to purchase Anne’s audio book on CD and audio book download will be announced in the next week.
