7:00 pm – Ferron
Thursday, March 2 @ 7:00 PM
Canadian folk singer/songwriter and poet Ferron is one of the world’s most influential writers and performers of women’s music. Part Cree and Ojibway Indian, Ferron grew up in British Columbia and her mother’s French-Canadian family inspired her to sing and write from an early age. When Ferron was 15, she hit the road alone. She had a single shopping bag with a change of clothes, a toothbrush, a waitress uniform, and a Leonard Cohen LP. Little did she know then, but one day her own songs would be compared to Cohen’s for their depth of word-craft, intimacy, and wisdom. With a career spanning 40+ years, Ferron has gone on to become one of women’s music’s most famous and enduring folk singers—whose rare live performances expose the depth of her heart, soul, courage and commitment to her art form. Joining Ferron on stage will be Grammy nominated pianist/composer/multi-instrumentalist Barbara HIgbie and Boston based guitarist Shelley Jennings.
