Marie-Lynn Hammond

Join us for our latest conversation with Marie-Lynn Hammond. Marie-Lynn is a bilingual singer-songwriter, playwright, editor, writer, and occasional poet who happily moved to Cobourg eight years ago. She has published four plays and more than 50 articles and radio essays. Her play Beautiful Deeds/De Beaux Gestes was co-produced by Théâtre du P’tit Bonheur (Toronto) and the Manitoba Theatre Centre (Winnipeg). A 1987 production was seen at the Persephone Theatre (Saskatoon), at the National Arts Centre, and elsewhere. It was also successfully revived at the Spirit of the Hills Festival of the Arts in 2017. A founding member of Stringband, one of Canada’s seminal folk groups, she’s known for her original songs, which often tell uniquely Canadian stories. A passionate animal advocate, she can frequently be found rescuing cats.
