Erin Costelo, along with her band, will take the stage at the Trailside Music Hall in Charlottetown tonight.
Although she has been compared to icons like Carole King and Nina Simone and has opened for legends like Dr. John and Mavis Staples, Costelo’s fifth studio album, Sweet Marie, cements her status as an utterly inimitable voice in Americana music.
On Sweet Marie, Costelo looks at a world and industry that pushed her to the edge of ending her musical career – but she pushes back.
Pulsing with a confident and cathartic energy, her voice soars even as her songs dive deep.
"Erin and her band put on one of the sweetest soul shows on the East coast," says owner Pat Deighan.
"I'm very excited to see and hear Erin in the new Trailside room downtown."
Tickets are available at Trailside.ca, Back Alley Music or call 902-394-3626. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with music at 8 p.m.
