With an electrifying voice and lyrics like silver arrowheads, Basia Bulat has become one of Canada’s most conspicuous talents.
Juno nominated and shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize, she often appears solo in gigantic halls, winning over crowds with an autoharp or charango, stomping feet, and two mighty lungs.
Her massive talent has also been recognized at scale: her songs have been adapted for major performances with symphony orchestras, and she’s been tapped for prestigious tributes to Leonard Cohen and The Band.
Since releasing her debut album in 2007, she has shared a stage with artists including Arcade Fire, The National, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Daniel Lanois, St Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, Destroyer and Andrew Bird.
Newfoundland songwriter BRIANNA GOSSE will open for Bulat. Since the release of her standout debut recording, AERA, Gosse has been gaining recognition for her charm, clever lyrics and addictively beautiful voice. She has been steadily gaining fans across Canada and as far as Kansas City with opening performances with The Once, Matt Andersen, Ron Sexsmith, Hawksley Workman and Amelia Curran. Brianna’s music and song writing continues to evolve while maintaining her unique blend of fun, sophisticated composition that has been the hallmark of her style to date. Stepping aside from full band sounds, she is currently exploring a more acoustic and compact vibe in preparation for her follow up recording.
