Join Buffy Sainte-Marie, legendary Cree singer-songwriter, activist, educator, visual artist, and winner of countless awards (Oscar, Juno, and Golden Globe, among them) for a powerful evening of inspiring songs and heart-melting ballads. 

Perhaps you know Sainte-Marie from her 1960s protest anthems, open-hearted love songs, incendiary powwow rock, or the juggernaut pop hit “Up Where We Belong,” which Sainte-Marie co-wrote and Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes sang for the soundtrack to An Officer and a Gentleman (1982).

Whatever the case, every song and every era has revealed new and disctinctive shades of an artist revered for her pioneering and chameleon ways. There was no mold from which Buffy Sainte-Marie emerged; she created her own, ripened from experiences in both her head and her heart.
