Violinist Rosemary Siemens performs in Abbotsford on Friday

Vancouver-based violinist Rosemary Siemens performs in Abbotsford on Friday, Oct. 28.

Siemens celebrates the release of Plum Coulee, My Home – the debut album from her new bluegrass recording project, Rosemary & the Sweet Sound Revival – during a show at the House of James, 2743 Emerson St.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m., and admission is $10 at the door.

Named after her hometown of Plum Coulee, Manitoba, the album was inspired by Siemens’ love for down-home, fiddle-based music.

It unfolded from a songwriting relationship with veteran Nashville musician/songwriter Carl Jackson (Glen Campbell, Garth Brooks) and features a collaboration with fiddle legend/Grammy-nominee Buddy Spicher (Bob Dylan, Emmy Lou Harris).

Siemens’ instrument is a 302-year-old Claude Pierray violin made for the court of King Louis XIV of France.

Siemens has performed for former U.S. president Jimmy Carter, Canadian music producer David Foster, at the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Latin Grammys and on Hockey Night in Canada.

International stages she has performed on include Carnegie Hall, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.

Siemens was the recent recipient of the prestigious Global Music Award Gold Medal and shared the stage with Grammy winner Cece Winans during the closing jam of the Americana Music Association’s Gospel Brunch in September 2016.
