Biography

Three Little Birds present strong vocal harmonies over upbeat acoustic arrangements consisting mostly of guitar, oboe, percussion, stand-up bass violin, and voice.

Erin Saoirse Adair is an Ottawa-based singer-songwriter and folk musician, Amelia Leclair is a singer/percussionist who studied Latin music styles while in Brazil and Angela Schleihauf is currently studying oboe performance at the University of Ottawa. Three Little Birds are defined by the eclectic mélange of their diverse interests.
