Artist Profile


Thursday, August 12th

Hailing from Dieppe, NB, Theresa Malenfant grew up surrounded by a musically-talented family. She
made her singing debut at the age of fourteen and was soon on stage, performing duets with the great
Dutch Mason.  After many years of success, both in her native Canada and during a five year stint living
and performing in Europe, Malenfant has a number of critically acclaimed albums to her credit and 30
years of performing under her belt. The vocal powerhouse in the tradition of Janis Joplin and Etta James
has amassed an incredible career, one that has shown no signs of slowing down. She’s released six
albums and has received honours such as the 1995 ECMA for Best Female Vocalist and the 2015 Maple
Leaf Blues Lifetime Achievement Award.

On stage at Cloggeroo, Theresa will be performing with her band The Instigators, featuring her long time
guitar player Scott Medford.
