Add to Calendar 11-06-2013 11-06-2013 15 Buffy Sainte Marie Buffy Sainte-Marie virtually invented the role of Native American international activist pop star. Her concern for protecting indigenous intellectual property, and her distaste for the exploitation of Native American artists and performers has kept her in the forefront of activism in the arts for forty years. Throughout her career, she has made 17 albums of her music, three of her own television specials, spent five years on Sesame Street, scored movies, helped to found Canada's 'Music of Aboriginal Canada' JUNO category, raised a son, earned a Ph.D. in Fine Arts, taught Digital Music as adjunct professor at several colleges, and won an Academy Award Oscar for the song "Up Where We Belong". Signed to Vanguard, she was one of the folk scene's more prominent rising stars in the '60s, and certainly the only widely heard performer articulating Native American viewpoints in song. Much of her best material from this era, however, gained its greatest commercial inroads via cover versions. "Universal Soldier" was one of Donovan's first hits. "Until It's Time for You to Go," perhaps her best composition, was covered by numerous pop singers, and became a big British hit for Elvis Presley in the early '70s. "Cod'ine," one of the few '60s songs to explicitly address the dangers of drugs, was covered by Californian rock bands Quicksilver Messenger Service and the Charlatans. "Running For The Drum," Buffy's first album since the 1992 release "Coincidence and likely Stories," contains twelve new inspired songs and stories about current events, art, politics and the aboriginal people, that showcase her emotional integrity and thrilling voice! Buffy Sainte-Marie is accompanied by a hot 5-piece all-Aboriginal band, blending the edgy sound of Winnipeg's Gathering of Flies band with Buffy's longtime friends and backup singers Ulali. The concert combines new songs from the "Running for the Drum" CD including No No Keshagesh and Cho Cho Fire, alongside those of her classics most requested by fans - Universal Soldier, Up Where We Belong, Until It's Time for You to Go, Spin & Spin, Cod'ine, Piney Wood Hills, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Starwalker and lots of others. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=134932 B.B.
