Buffy Sainte-Marie

The Bailey Theatre, CFWE 98.5 FM and the Camrose Arts Council present Buffy Sainte-Marie with special guest Leeroy Stagger on May 24.

Since her ground-breaking debut album in 1964, It’s My Way!, the Cree singer-songwriter has been a trailblazer and a tireless advocate, an innovative artist, and a disruptor of the status quo.

She’s written pop standards which have been sung and recorded by such artists as Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley, Donovan, Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes.

She penned “Universal Soldier,” the definitive anti-war anthem of the 20th century.

Buffy Sainte-Marie’s incisive honesty, clarity, and intelligent compassion stands out and there’s still work to be done, and that work is her new album Medicine Songs (2017), which won a Juno in the Indigenous music album of the year category.

Tickets $45+GST at the door or at the Bailey Box Office or online at http://www.baileytheatre.com/
