Sarah Slean and Hawksley Workman will perform songs from their respective musical repertoires, accompanying each other and singing as a duo. Expect the evening to be filled with unforgettable music, storytelling, and soaring voices.
Sarah Slean is no longer the “Sweet Ones” pop ingenue. She is a composer and unique artistic force. Over the course of her 20 year career, she has made 11 albums, starred in short films and a movie musical, published two volumes of poetry, held exhibitions of her paintings, written string quartets, composed for full symphonic ensemble and shared the stage with ten of the country’s leading orchestras. During that time, she was nominated for three Junos and two Geminis, graced the TED stage in Edinburgh, toured internationally, premiered works by renowned contemporary composers as a vocalist, and released albums in over 10 countries world-wide.
Hawksley Workman is a two-time Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. A staple of the Canadian music and arts scene for over 20 years, Workman boasts a catalogue of 16 releases, showcasing his now signature blend of anthemic folk and show-stopping vocals. Hawksley’s touring career has seen him play over a thousand shows worldwide. He’s headlined prestigious venues like Massey Hall in Toronto and The Olympia in Paris.
