DON’T LET ME FALL TOO FAR has been nominated for East Coast Music Award, Electronic Recording of the Year! Lots of folks to thank here so here it goes!
Some CBC Newfoundland and Labrador love for the new album, DON’T LET ME FALL TOO FAR. An interview with lovely Weekend AM host, Heather Barrett for “First Listen”. We play some of my tunes and speak about the new album, touring, the gear I use, what it’s like to pursue a music career that’s totally outside of the box and why I love the St. John’s music scene so darn much. https://www.cbc.ca/listen/live-radio/1-72-weekend-am/clip/15745011-rozalind-macphail-plays-the-flute-but-thats-just-her-starting-point
Playing on P4 Västmanland Sveriges Radio? was a heartwarming experience I will always remember. Don’t think I’ve ever felt so nervous performing live on air before. The room was electric! It’s a rare treat when you get to perform the world premiere of a piece in the country where the piece was composed and with your collaborative partners in the room. Sweden’s Mary Read? were fantastic! Check out the performances and interviews.. My segment starts around 2/3rds of the way in but I recommend you check out Mary Read too. They are doing something truly unique and special as they mix Swedish folk music with electronics. Tack to Per Erik Jonsson for the excellent engineering! https://sverigesradio.se/sida/artikel.aspx?programid=112&artikel=7290539
A priceless moment as I picked up a copy of the The Newfoundland Herald and discovered a 2-page spread. For a ‘come from away’ who moved to Newfoundland 10 years ago, there is no bigger honour than to see yourself featured in a magazine that doesn’t get more Newfoundland!

I leave in four days for my first tour of Berlin and Sweden. Here’s where you’ll find me performing and teaching:
It was an honour to present and perform at the National Flute Convention in Orlando, Florida. I spoke on a career panel about entrepreneurship and performed at the showcase for the Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments all-stars at #NFAFlute2018. I wish I could put into words how special the Gemeinhardt flute family is to me. Such wonderful people who warm my heart and make FANTASTIC instruments! Thank you for helping me shine.
