Jude Pelley

Jude Pelley was born in Carbonear, Newfoundland, late in 1975; and raised in the rural community of West Dublin, on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. He was tremendously inspired by his musical father, Derek Pelley, who played with seminal Canadian folk-rock groups Figgy Duff and Rawlins Cross; he spent his formative years learning the mandolin, playing with Bridgewater’s award-winning bluegrass band, Exit 13. Since those days, his musical adventures have included: touring Nova Scotia by bicycle; being a mainstay in Victoria, BC’s vibrant professional music scene for 5 years; criss-crossing Canada, usually in vehicles which run on waste vegetable oil, or by train; hosting the Pennybrook Festival in West Dublin, NS; running a small-scale acoustic music recording and production studio, Alone Stone Productions; and dabbling in medieval and early music.

Currently, Jude is in the process of polishing up a long-awaited solo album, due out in the Fall of 2023. His main side project these days is a roots, blues, and Appalachian old-time music duo with fiddler and singer Amy Lounder, called Sloecooker.
