Before Buffy Sainte-Marie joins the top-notch lineup at Bluesfest 2020, the Indigenous Canadian American singer-songwriter is performing in Sydney for just one night at City Recital Hall on Wednesday, April 8.

The award-winning music powerhouse has been making music since the 60s and is still creating meaningful music today — from her groundbreaking debut It's My Way! (1964) to her most recent album Medicine Songs, released in 2017. She has a total of 21 albums to her name, and wrote the well-known anti-war anthem 'Universal Soldier', most famously performed by Donovan. She's also had the likes of Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley, Jennifer Warnes and Joe Cocker sing and record her songs. And she's considered a pioneer in electronic music. Put simply, she's a pretty big deal.

Expect music that speaks to hard-hitting social issues, including First Nations rights, protesting climate change and greed. Think Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez, Patti Smith's 'People Have the Power' and a bit of Midnight Oil thrown in — except entirely Buffy Sainte-Marie. So if you can't hack a ticket to Byron Bay, here's your chance to catch the fierce Cree artist on stage.

You'll want to nab your tickets sooner rather than later. To book, head here.
