JADEA KELLY with an all-star Ottawa based band and special guests each week.

Country-edged original "Canadiana" material by a rising young performer. Think Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris and Iris DeMent

One of Canada's brightest young songwriters continues an October Residency at the Elmdale Tavern

The next three Tuesdays in October (October 11/18/25) 8-10PM

The Elmdale House Tavern, 1084 Wellington St. Ottawa ON. 613 728-2848

It's been a little less than two years since Jadea Kelly gave up her day job to be a full-time musician. Since then she’s played over a dozen times at Wakefield’s Black Sheep with the likes of Luke Doucet, Justin Rutledge and Melissa McLelland, and recorded by CBC Radio at the 2010 Stewart Park Folk Festival.

She's also toured in Europe, played for audiences in the Maritimes three times and western Canada twice, was nominated as best new emerging artist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, and held down a three-month residency at Toronto's Cameron House, a legendary launching pad for up-and-coming artists.

With the success of the Toronto residency under her belt, Jadea is already a week into a month-long residency at the Elmdale House Tavern in Ottawa.

She’s accompanied by an all-star line up of Ottawa musicians, including David Baxter, Peter Von Althen, Ken Kanwisher, Cindy Doire, Lynne Hanson, and Lynn Miles. Baxter is Jadea’s special guest this Tuesday (October 11), with Cindy Doire set for October 18, and Lynne Hanson on the 25th.


NOTE: Kelly's first name is pronounced "Jay-da" — the extra E in her name (courtesy of her mother!) sometimes confuses radio folk, who pronounce it, wrongly, as "Jay-dEE-a"
