THURSDAY JUNE 30 AT 8 P.M. AT ST. MARK’S CHURCH. Do not miss Susan Aglukark – Canada’s Artic Rose. Welcome to the Artist Life Stories night where renowned Canadian artist, Susan Aglukark performs live and discusses her life’s journey with host Cameron Smillie.
Truly one of Canada’s most significant cultural treasures. Apart from being a beautiful singer and powerful songwriter, she provides a significant view to the culture of our northern communities. A musician whose blend of Folk music traditions with Country music and pop songwriting has made her a major recording star in Canada. Her most successful single is “O Siem”, which reached No. 1 on the Canadian country and adult contemporary charts in 1995. Overall, she has released seven studio albums and has won three Juno Awards. In addition, she recently received the 2022 Special Humanitarian Juno award presented by Music Canada!
The evening is like a perfectly mixed cocktail. Two parts conversation, one part show and tell, one part question and answer and always splashed with a dash of the unexpected. Get ready for on-stage conversations interspersed with live music from Susan Aglukark!
