Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah Harmer will arrive in Salmon Arm this spring.
The Salmon Arm Folk Music Society has announced that Sarah Harmer will perform on March 18, 2024 at the Song Sparrow Hall in Salmon Arm.
The platinum-selling artist will perform the show as part of her tour in support of her latest album, titled Are You Gone.
Harmer is an avid environmentalist and says the ongoing climate crisis inspired many of the songs on the album.
“It’s a sharper, more electric confrontation with the realities of nature and human nature,” says Harmer.
The Ontario-born singer helped lead efforts to stop an open-pit mine in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve on the Niagara Escarpment in 2004.
Kevin Torbin, artistic director of the Salmon Arm Folk Music Society, believes Harmer's music and environmentalist message will resonate with locals.
“Here is a very successful and moving voice, reflecting on topics that many of us are thinking about. I think Harmer’s music will really touch people,” says Torbin.
Tickets for Harmer's March show go on sale on Wednesday 13th December at 10am and are available at Roots and Blues website.
