Based in Edmonton, singer songwriter Colleen Brown was recipient of the Alberta Emerging Artist Award, finalist in last year's CBC Song Quest, and most recently named Best Female Artist at the inaugural Edmonton Music Awards, multi?instrumentalist Brown has been called "a national treasure in the making -- along the lines of Joni Mitchell, Anne Murray, Gordon Lightfoot or k.d. lang." (Sandra Sperounes of The Edmonton Journal). Colleen re?released her album "Foot In Heart" with Emm Gryner's Dead Daisy Records & Outside Music on March 16, 2010 and is steadily gaining career momentum and recognition. To date, Colleen -- both solo, and as part of her side projects 'The Secretaries' and 'The Kit Kat Club' ? has performed more than 300 shows, (including this year's Edmonton Folk Fest) sharing stages with a broad range of artists across Canada including Jim Cuddy, Hawksley Workman, Kathleen Edwards, Frank Black, Gogol Bordello, Hey Rosetta, Dan Mangan, Danny Michel, Hannah Georgas, and Fred Eaglesmith. She also toured across Canada this October with Canadian folk/rock icons Crash Test Dummies.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
