Lee Harvey Osmond
Lee Harvey Osmond is the brainchild of Canadian music veteran Tom Wilson (Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, Junkhouse etc.), in collaboration with members of Cowboy Junkies and Skydiggers. Beautiful Scars is the Juno nominated third album, and follows two albums, A Quiet Evil and The Folk Sinner which were previously longlisted for the Polaris Prize and nominated for a Juno. The music has been described as ‘acid folk’, made up of poetic, reflective lyrics, haunting melodies, and intriguing arrangements.
At 53, Wilson discovered he was adopted and had Mohawk ancestry – a story (among others) he told in his 2017 memoir, Beautiful Scars, recently released to much acclaim. The festival weekend will include a special, exclusive literary/music performance based on the book, aboard the William Ramsey Cruise boat. Lee Harvey Osmond will also perform on the festival’s Main Stage.
