Event description
The one-and-only FERRON returns to the Princess for one night only. One of Canada's all-time greatest folk musicians. Not to be missed!

About this Event

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, Ferron grew up near Vancouver, B.C. The eldest of seven children, she was tossed between foster homes, her mother and an abusive stepfather. Her mother’s French Canadian family inspired her to sing and write from an early age. She ran away at age 15, and describes leaving home with only a shopping bag of stuff: “I was 15. In my shopping bag I had a change of clothes, a toothbrush, my A&W uniform, and a Leonard Cohen album. No record player.” Ferron has gone one to become one of Canada’s most famous and enduring folk singers.

Ferron has released 16 albums, some from her own labels, Lucy Records and Cherrywood Station Records. She worked briefly with Warner Brother Records, a relationship that quickly soured, which sent the artist into isolation for several years.

Ferron has always showcased her fears, philosophies, desires, and hopes with the frankness of a close friend and the insight of a therapist. She illuminates human experience in a way that few artists are capable of. Ferron has such self-possession and intuitive command of her material that she can deliver lines that a less experienced singer would never be able to pull off. The weight, poise and gravity that she communicates with each word, each carefully enunciated phrase, is something to marvel at. The words she sings sound ancient, irrefutable and significant.

With a touring career spanning nearly four decades, the legendary singer-songwriter is a captivating performer. "Music is like a spiritual quest, it’s like looking for connection. We have our right work to do, and you find out our right work is only to be spiritually connected,” Ferron says.
