Ferron in Concert
November 30, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$2535
With a career spanning 40+ years, Ferron is a real salt of the earth singer who approaches her art with both sleeves rolled up, ready to dive in. Her songs don’t sound composed and sung as much as the feel wrung from the sweat and toil of hard fought experience. Ferron illuminates human experience in a way that few artists are capable of.
Ferron illuminates human experience in a way that few artists are capable of. Like fellow Canadian Leonard Cohen, Ferron has such self-possession and intuitive command of her material that she can deliver lines that a less experienced singer would never be able to pull off. The weight, poise and gravity that she communicates with each word, each carefully annunciated phrase, is something to marvel at. The words she sings sound ancient, irrefutable and significant.
“Ferron writes of love with the relentless introspection of Leonard Cohen, and, as with classic Bob Dylan, her songs’ tough, questioning attitude sometimes gives way to the unexpected”. – Rolling Stone Magazine
