Normally, when stepping into a library, the general assumption is that you want to keep noise to a minimum. Well, the Edmonton Public Library is turning up the volume, as it unveils the first artist of the new Musician in Residence program. The freshly baked incentive is designed to offer aspiring and established artists the opportunity for one-on-one consultation and to learn the acumen it takes to dive into the business, accomplished through workshops and various networking opportunities.
Award-winning singer/songwriter Mallory Chipman is the first musician to take up the mantle of EPL Musician in Residence. Mallory is an entrepreneur, performer and educator, who has a total of five albums under her belt and has shared stages with many acclaimed performers, including Madeleine Peyroux and Don Ross.
Mallory Chipman joined CKUA’s Tony King on Alberta Morning to tell us more about her musical career and being the first ever Musician in Residence for Edmonton’s public libraries.
