Inspired by poets such as Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath, by songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell, and by contemporary composers such as Igor Stravinsky, and Yann Tiersen, Adair’s music is a unique blend.
Erin Saoirse Adair’s songs reflect the influence of folkloric traditions in her music and though her musical arrangements are complex, Adair’s goal on stage is to tell a story.
Over the past few months, she has been earnestly writing, polishing, and performing new songs and is now working towards the release of her debut album in the fall of 2012. Founder and part of feminist folk trio Three Little Birds, Adair is a strong collaborator, and the group recently released their debut CD with the help of Dean Watson of Gallery Studios. She has performed recently with Three Little Birds in many venues including features at Ottawa University’s Frosh Week, and the Ontario Conference for Folk Festivals. She has also performed with the Young Griot Collective at the National Library and Archives, Jean-Paul Samputu at the Rwandan Cultural Showcase, and has featured at Little Voice Big Sound, Springfest, and Women’s World 2011, a global feminist conference.
