NPR Favorite Rose Cousins Headlines Final BPR Benefit Concert in Sanctuary Sessions Series

Rose Cousins

Join us this Saturday, June 16th at 7:30 PM for the final “Sanctuary Sessions” concert featuring Rose Cousins and Maya de Vitry.

“It's always best to turn to Rose Cousins if you have some feelings that really need to be felt.” – NPR Heavy Rotation

Rose Cousins lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia when she’s not touring internationally. Her 2012 album WE HAVE MADE A SPARK won a JUNO, 3 ECMAs, a CFMA, was long listed for the Polaris Music Prize, and made featured/best of lists in USA Today, NPR and Oprah Magazine. Her music has appeared in several TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy and Nashville. To make her new record NATURAL CONCLUSION, she enlisted GRAMMY award winning producer Joe Henry. The result is what Cousins calls “the most honest and vulnerable thing” she has made to date.

Tickets for the concert, produced by NewSong Music, are available in advance for $15.00 at The Orange Peel website, and will be available at the venue on the day of show for $20.00. All proceeds will be donated to Blue Ridge Public Radio. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the performance starts at 7:30 PM at Asheville's Central United Methodist Church,  27 Church Street. Convenient parking is available at the new parking garage on Coxe Avenue.

Nashville-based singer-song writer Maya de Vitry joins Rose Cousins for this final Sanctuary Sessions concert. A lover of the strange and beautiful conversation between words and music, Maya de Vitry experiences and embraces being alive through song. She has spent the last six years touring the United States, Canada, and Europe with her celebrated Americana band The Stray Birds.  In her solo work, her lone, dynamic voice, and her muses and meditations, explore a striking new landscape.  Originally from Pennsylvania (and twice a resident of Asheville), Maya makes her home in Nashville, where she has watched more sunsets on the same lake than ever before in her life. Here's a YouTube video of Maya with her band The Stray Birds, performing a song that made NPR Music's "Songs We Love."
