Anne Marie Wyse-Murray emerged from the rich Celtic tradition of Newfoundland and a musical
Scots-Irish family to become one of Canada's singer-poet. Classically trained from
early youth, with a further three years at the Royal conservatory of Music in Toronto, she
maintained a strong interest in popular music and held fast to Celtic music, the heritage
of Newfoundland. Having taught, after student days, she then went on to record with
the CBC and Radio Canada International. She traveled in many countries of the world,
and discovered the joy of performing, and the fulfillment of writing.
She also brings the music of other traditions to her performances, particular the Tara
songs of Ireland, the fado songs of Portugal, and the cabaret songs of France, which she
sings in the languages in which they were written.
