Saskia Munroe
Lady Luck

Saskia Munroe was born and raised in the city of Utrecht in the Netherlands. She immigrated to Canada in 1975 and moved with her family, to northern British Columbia where she explored her new environment and language before embarking upon a full time career in music. Although Saskia's early musical career was influenced by contemporary folk artists such as Gordon Lightfoot, Emmy Lou Harris and Joan Baez, she realized that her real passion lay in writing original songs that melded the traditions of her European homeland with the frontier spirit of Northern British Columbia. This discovery led her to embark upon a musical career that would span 20 years and find her performing throughout Europe, Canada and the United States. Saskia believes her music is best described as an effort to reconcile her experience as an immigrant coming from the rich historical mosaic that is Europe with the exuberant vitality of Canada's north country. She says. " Although I love everything about Canada deeply and consider it my home now, I find that I have to return periodically to Holland to reconnect with my roots and reassure myself it's all still there. My song "Two Countries" best describes how I feel when it says, two countries are pulling me ever so strong".

A CHRISTMAS DREAM CD PROJECT
FOR B.C. FOOD BANKS
A Christmas Dream CD is a unique collaboration featuring 11 original and traditional Christmas songs from legendary Canadian musicians Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard, B.C. singer/songwriters Nathan Tinkham and Saskia Munroe and songwriter Darrel Delaronde. Created to raise money for B.C. food banks, the recording presents a musical feast that is destined to become a Christmas classic.
Inspired by the annual Huron Carol tour, this project was born when Saskia Munroe contacted her favorite B.C. musicians and asked if they had any original Christmas songs to contribute to a fundraising CD for B.C. foodbanks. The response was immediate and enthusiastic and the recording quickly turned into a collaboration with Valdy, Fjellgaard and Munroe providing harmonies to each other’s songs and Tinkham adding his award-winning guitar throughout. From Valdy’s jazzy Secret Santa to Fjellgaard and Munroe’s moving version of I Saw Three Ships, this CD is a seamless blend of original and traditional songs. All the musicians have donated 100% of their talent and time to create this CD.
