Canadian music legend Buffy Sainte-Marie
returns to the Charlie White Theatre at
the Mary Winspear Centre for a rare solo
performance on Sunday, August 7.
Buffy Sainte-Marie’s bold new album,
Power in the Blood, begins where it all
started more than 50 years ago. Its
message, about the road to self-identity
and the conviction to be oneself, still
resonates with the 75-year-old Cree
singer-songwriter, activist, educator, visual
artist, and winner of countless awards.
“I’ve been traveling around the world for
a long time, finding songs in my head like
snapchats of how I feel about what I see
and the people I meet. I’ve had the blues
now and then, but I’ve had all the other
colours too; what’s remained consistent is
my conclusion, which has always inspired
my songs, that life is precious, diverse and
worth protecting.”
Whatever the case, every song and every
era has revealed new and distinctive shades
of an artist revered for her pioneering and
chameleon ways.
The solo show will include numbers off of
her new album Power in the Blood and
some recognizable favourites
including Universal Soldier and Up
Where We Belong. Join us for this unique
concert experience on Sunday, August 7
at 7pm.
