Originating from one of Canada’s special wild places, Labrador, and presently residing in the midst of one of Canada’s most celebrated national parks, Gros Morne, it is no wonder that Shirley’s writings are filled with nature’s imagery. Through recordings and performances, she has reached into the hearts and homes of many.
She has worked with many respected musicians from Atlantic Canada and is considered a pillar of the music industry, mentoring and inspiring others.
Shirley is the founder of the annual Trails Tales Tunes Festival and she continues to be very instrumental in the growing arts and culture scene in the Gros Morne region. Shirley still makes time for some performing, when the right situation arises, and she thoroughly enjoys making music with others.
