Concerts Denman presents:
A beguiling teller of tales and master guitarist, Stephen Fearing has been named one of Canada’s finest singer-songwriters. A multi-JUNO award winner, he has released 13 solo albums, including Every Soul’s a Sailor (2017), for which he won Worldwide Album of the Year from Blues & Roots Radio, and Contemporary Singer of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. With a mesmerizing blend of roots, folk, and Americana music he has cultivated national and international audiences.
In 1996 Fearing co-founded the folk supergroup Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, for what was intended to be a one-off tribute album of songs written by Canadian folk legend Willie P. Bennet. 25 years later they are still going strong and with 10 albums and a JUNO award to their credit, the band has become one of the most respected names in North American roots-rock.
Stephen Fearing’s 13th solo album The Unconquerable Past was released in 2019. Like other artists who are loosely categorized as folk and Americana, Fearing questions what those terms mean. The Unconquerable Past can be seen as embracing and transcending the labels and genres simultaneously. He says, “I’m always intrigued by unknown territory, and pushing myself out of my comfort zone.”
Join us as Concerts Denman returns to the Hall with the first show of what promises to be a terrific season of world class entertainment.
