A rare, solo performance by

BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE

This is Buffy’s first concert performance in Montreal since 2009! Her last album entitled Medecine Songs was released on November 10, 2017.

Buffy Sainte-Marie is a musician, visual artist, educator, activist, philanthropist, innovator, and folk icon. She has written pop standards that have been sung and recorded by the likes of Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, First Aid Kit, and Elvis Presley, to name a few; penned “Universal Soldier,” the definitive anti-war anthem of the 20th century; recorded one of the world’s first electronic vocal albums; and spent five years on Sesame Street, where she became the first woman to breastfeed on national television. Buffy Sainte-Marie is also the first, and only, Indigenous woman to win an Academy Award. In 2018’s climate of damaging rhetoric and toxic hubris, Buffy Sainte-Marie’s incisive honesty, clarity, and intelligent compassion stand out in sharp relief.

After more than 50 years in the music industry, Buffy Sainte-Marie continues to be a thrilling and necessary artist and activist. She is the recipient of this year’s People’s Voice Award* for the message in her music, her voice regarding Indigenous issues, cultural awareness, and the environment, her trailblazing role as a woman in the music industry, and for the continued work of her Nihwean Foundation and the Cradleboard Teaching Project.

*The People’s Voice Award is presented to an individual who unabashedly embraces social and political commentary in their creative work and public careers. Past recipients include Bruce Cockburn (2017) and Bonnie Raitt (2018).
