Juno winning singer/songwriter set to play the Empress next week


By Lethbridge Herald on October 27, 2021.

The Empress Theatre in Fort Macleod will be welcoming Juno-award winning folk singer/songwriter Connie Kaldor, on Friday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Kaldor has toured around the world, won three Juno Awards and is a member of the Order of Canada. She is the only songwriter to win the Western Literary Association Award of Merit. She is the author of three award winning CD books for children and has written musicals and music for films and web series as well. But it is her live shows that have formed the bedrock of her lengthy career.
As a writer, singer, and performer, Kaldor has built a loyal fan following over 30 years, one show at a time. In 1981, Kaldor founded her own independent record label, Coyote Entertainment. She has since released sixteen albums, including last year’s seasonal album, Prairie Christmas and this year’s album titled Everyday Moments.
Her music blurs traditional musical boundaries, weaving together elements of folk, rock, jazz, country, gospel, bluegrass, and adult contemporary. Despite now living in Montreal, many of her songs chronicle life where she was raised on the Canadian prairies, with descriptions of the landscapes and people often finding their way into her poetic lyrics. Her song “Wood River”, the unofficial anthem of Saskatchewan, was chosen by Canadian Geographic as one of Canada’s finest songs.
Kaldor’s husband, Paul Campagne, a musician and music producer, will join her onstage.
