You are invited on a Journey with Stephen Fearing

Kitimat Concert Association’s next event is on Friday, November 23

Due to popular demand, the Kitimat Concert Association is bringing musician Stephen Fearing back onto the Mount Elizabeth Theatre stage.

He’s coming to Kitimat on Saturday, November 23, right after the release of his latest album The Unconquerable Past, on November 15.

Among other influences, Fearing’s music blends roots, pop and Americana and appeals to a wide audience. He is a great storyteller who knows that people want to escape and be taken on a journey and he builds his shows so people can do that.

Fearing was born in Vancouver, but grew up in Dublin. Some of his schoolmates would later be members of the band U2. In 1981, he moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where he honed his skills as a musician.

In 1984, he returned to Vancouver where he launched his career as a professional musician. Over the years he performed at countless venues, including intimate spaces, festival stages and theatres across Canada, the U.S., U.K. and Europe.

In Canada, Stephen Fearing is well known as a founding member of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. The musicians came together to record a tribute album of songs by Canadian folk music legend Willie P. Bennett, but 23 years later, they are still performing together with nine albums and a JUNO award to their credit.

To date, Fearing has released 10 solo albums on which he often featured guest artists, including Bruce Cockburn, Margo Timmins, Rose Cousins, Richard Thompson, Shawn Colvin and Sarah McLachlan. Over the years, he has collaborated with many well-known artists. He worked with Andy White – as Fearing & White they released two acclaimed albums.

In addition to performing solo and collaborating with other artists, Fearing produces records such as Suzie Vinnick’s JUNO Award-nominated album Happy Here. He also gives songwriting workshops in which he shares his knowledge and expertise with fellow artists from all walks of life.

The respect Stephen Fearing has earned among his peers, critics, presenters and audiences is reflected in the many nominations and awards that have come his way over the years, such as the JUNOS and the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

In recent years, his album Every Soul’s a Sailor was awarded the 2017 Worldwide Album of the Year by Blues & Roots Radio and he was named 2017 Contemporary Singer of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

So escape the humdrum of daily life and come on a journey with Stephen Fearing on November 23. The concert starts at 8:00 p.m. Beer and wine are available before the show and at intermission.

Tickets are available from Bradley’s Bait and Tackle in the Lower City Centre Mall and at the door.
