Sainte-Marie will be one of the summer's hottest tickets.
Without her there'd be no Jeremy Dutcher. Heck, there'd be no Joni Mitchell. Yep, long before the "Indigenous renaissance" that saw Dutcher win a JUNO and the Snotty Nose Rez Kids revolutionize Canadian hip hop, there was Buffy Sainte-Marie, pioneering the ’60s singer-songwriter genre with a catalogue of tunes as thematically weighty as they are sonically light. Now, as the icon finally reaches new levels of recognition (Pitchfork gave her 1969 breakthrough album Illuminations a long-overdue nine out of 10 review earlier this month), she's hitting Casino Nova Scotia's Schooner Room to baptize our ears and soothe our hearts.

With 19 new songs "about the environment, alternative conflict resolution, Indigenous realities, greed and racketeering," as a press release promises, the August 26 show will light a fire in your belly, too. Tickets are on sale as of Feb 28, starting at $64.99 plus fees. Get them at ticketatlantic.com.
