Shelburne’s Canada Day committee has announced award-winning musician Rose Cora Perry as their headlining entertainment for Canada Day 150 celebrations July 1st.

According to her management team, Rose Cora Perry is currently on tour as a duo with The Truth Untold in conjunction with the release of her new, critically-acclaimed, sophomore solo album, Onto the Floor.”

Ms. Perry has “graced the covers of magazines, achieved top 30 radio singles, conducted numerous guest lectures, served as a voting committee member for the Jack Richardson Music Awards and was elected to represent the ‘voice of the independent musician’ in a three-month expose for Canadian Musician,” says promoter Riley Allen.

In 2010, Perry launched her critically acclaimed debut solo album, “Off Of the Pages” and its associated non-for-profit foundation, “MusicSaves,” which aims to impart the healing capacity of music to troubled youth.

“2016 marked the triumphant return of Perry’s musical efforts with the worldwide release of her sophomore solo album, Onto the Floor,” says Ms. Allen. In conjunction with the album’s release, Ms. Perry formed the high energy powerhouse duo, The Truth Untold, featuring Tyler Randall on drums with Ms. Perry handling vocals, guitar and song writing.

“Within a mere six months of coming together, The Truth Untold conquered audiences of 25,000 plus, performing at 15 summer festivals and winning over crowds of twenty something’s and baby boomers alike,” says Riley Allen.

In celebration of Canada’s 150 years of confederation, Shelburne Councillor Dan Sample says the Canada Day Committee decided to create more activities for all ages, including Ms. Perry’s headlining act, and additional kids’ activities. He said there will be eight bounce castles for the kids and the Giant Tiger Train will be on site for family fun and a tour around the park.

The Shelburne Kinettes will have the kitchen open; selling their delicious food, while the Kinsmen will be hosting a beer garden. Also, new this year, an open air market with vendors selling their products throughout the day.

As always, the celebrations will finish with a spectacular fireworks show, planned to be even bigger and better in celebration of Canada’s 150th. The fireworks will run from about 10 to 11 p.m. The Canada Day 150 festivities take place on Saturday July 1 starting at 3 p.m. at Fiddle Park: 515677 Dufferin County Road 11. Rose Cora Perry will perform at 9 p.m.
