The Queen troubadour of intelligent black-comic sex ballads
Canadians are, in the view of those who don't know any, polite, apologetic and shy. Which is about as accurate as all Scotsmen are mean and all Africans have natural rhythm.

Certainly there's not too much shy and retiring about Canadian Shirley Gnome, who's show C*untry Music played to sold out houses at the Edinburgh and Edmonton Fringe Festivals in 2016.

Her form of music comedy shows is unique and a clear pure sweet voice she regales audiences with 'original music, standup comedy, wickedly inventive lyrics, and biting social commentary' and wrapped in what a critic has called 'a dirty, dirty mind'.

Accompanying herself on a guitar she has appeared at shows across North America, the United Kingdom and Australia. If you'd like a sample of her work, her YouTube channel can be seen here.

Needless to say, this is an eighteen only show with strong coarse language and adult themes.
