About the book:
Folk hero. Songwriter icon. Living legend. Buffy Sainte-Marie is all of these things and more.
Since her groundbreaking debut, 1964’sIt’s My Way!, the Cree singer-songwriter has been a trailblazer and a tireless advocate for Indigenous rights and freedoms, an innovative artist, and a disruptor of the status quo. Establishing herself among the ranks of folk greats such as Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, she has released more than twenty albums, survived being blacklisted by two U.S. presidents, and received countless accolades, including the only Academy Award ever to be won by a First Nations artist. But this biography does more than celebrate Sainte-Marie’s unparalleled talent as a songwriter and entertainer; packed with insight and knowledge, it offers an unflinchingly honest, heartbreakingly real portrait of the woman herself, including the challenges she experienced on the periphery of showbiz, her healing from the trauma of childhood and intimate partner violence, her commitment to activism, and her leadership in the protest movement.
Librairie Drawn & Quarterly recognizes that our events and bookstores are located on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. Many of us refer to Montreal as our home, but it is named Tiohtiá:ke. This has always been a gathering place for many First Nations and continues to be home to a diverse population of Indigenous peoples. It is important to think about how each and every one of us has arrived here. We are grateful that creating and sharing stories has been a part of this land for thousands of years and we urge you to seek out a story that is different from your own.
Please note that Rialto Hall is not accessible & that alcohol will be for sale.

The new version of SRV TRIBUTE BAND BLUES attacks with brio STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN’s greatest hits, the 7th greatest guitarist of all time (as Rolling Stone magazine). Olivier Gagné, in the role of STEVIE RAY, will revive the artistic journey of the most iconic texan of the blues history. All has been made to recreate the work in every detail. The physical resemblance is fascinating, the voice is solid, passionate, strong and intense. The guitar playing is masterful, energetic, the band prestation is remarkable. A brilliant retrospective of the repertoire of that blues legend. The critics are unanimous, a show not to be missed!
