Ladybird Sideshow at Rosemary Beach to Benefit Alaqua Animal Refuge Dec. 7

December 3, 2012 by SoWal Staff

This show at Rosemary Beach looks like a good one and one we're looking forward to. We love live music in SoWal and it's a treat when we get musicians of quality traveling to our area.

This Friday at 7:30pm at the Rosemary Beach Town Hall join us as we welcome Canadian musicians and co-founders of the animal rescue group Ladybird Animal Sanctuary. They'll be sharing their music for the benefit of animals in need.  

Melissa McClelland, Janine Stoll and Lisa Winn are award-winning, critically acclaimed singer/songwriters from Canada. Members of the group have their own individual bands, and have toured with the likes of Sara McLachlan, even winning the prestigious 'Album of the Year' award in Canada.

They've toured together and released a live recording under the name “Ladybird Sideshow.” A rare folk music performance, each will showcase her own unique songs, while the other Ladybirds add lush harmonies.

While in Florida the Ladybirds will work with Laurie Hood, director of Alaqua Animal Refuge, to gain knowledge on the successful operation of the shelter. 

“We look forward to learning from the best at Alaqua, and sharing our music in return. We plan on taking some of that Florida warmth back with us to Canada to help more animals in need,” says Melissa McClelland.
