the passion of buffy sainte-marie ....

Acclaimed First Nations musician/songwriter/activist, Buffy Sainte-Marie, performed at Toronto's outdoor Dundas Square last night, a free concert presented by Thunderbird Aboriginal Arts Centre. Fabulous!! At 70 years of age, the talented '60's Canadian icon seethed with energy (she played for close to 2 hours non-stop) , passion & generosity of spirit. Playing guitar & keyboard with her band, she offered all her greats, including the Academy Award winning "Up Where We Belong ( a huge hit for Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warrens on the soundtrack of the movie "An Officer & a Gentleman), the powerful "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" & 'Universal Soldier' the anti- war song that got her black-listed from the US airwaves in the '70's for being ' too radical'. She's back! Big time! In the midst of a world tour, gathering accolades from both press & fans, and her message for peace & a kinder world stronger than ever. Thank you, Buffy!!
