JUNO award winner Rita Chiarelli to perform at Guelph Civic Museum


GUELPH, ON March 10, 2017: “Blues goddess” Rita Chiarelli will perform a free Oh Canada Concert Friday, March 24 at Guelph Civic Museum as part of the Fourth Friday concert series.

Born and raised in Hamilton, Chiarelli’s music career began at fifteen in a high school band called The Tempest.  She has since toured all across North America and spent five years in Italy recording, touring and perfecting her songwriting.

Chiarelli’s soaring three-octave voice sets her apart. Beyond her blues roots, Chiarelli has recorded a variety of music including traditional Italian folk songs and collaborations with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra.

Most recently, Chiarelli released the soundtrack from award-winning documentary, Music from the Big House, which features Chiarelli’s experience performing a blues concert with Louisiana’s Angola Prison inmates.

Admission to the Museum is free after 5 PM on Fourth Fridays.  Concerts begin at 7 PM.  Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street, Guelph.

Fourth Friday Oh Canada Concerts are funded in part by the Government of Canada.
