Sarah Jane Scouten
Highway 19 Concerts returns to Rivercity Stage for a third season of intimate concerts by outstanding touring Canadian artists.
Folk & country singer-songwriter Sarah Jane Scouten has been nominated for 4 Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Western Canadian Music Award and an International Folk Music Award.
She has performed at Vancouver Folk Music Festival, MerleFest in North Carolina, Calgary Folk Music Festival, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues, Maverick Americana Music Festival, and more. She has opened for Corb Lund, William Prince, Ron Sexsmith, The Sadies and shared the stage with the likes of Martha Wainwright, The Strumbellas, Allison Russell, and Martin Carthy.
Scouten’s upcoming fifth album Turned to Gold (Light Organ Records) is a road trip album, drawing on Tom Petty, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Christine McVie. Opening up the record, “Wanderlust” is a highway dream. “Wilder When I Was With You”, with its irresistible chorus, was co-written with Samantha Parton (BeGood Tanyas). “Rose and Carnations” is a tribute to John Prine and “The Great Unknown” reveals a family experience of medical assistance in dying (MAID).
According to CBC q’s Tom Power, “Stan Rogers was able to do it, Ron Hynes was able to do it, Kate McGarrigle was able to do it – and Sarah Jane Scouten is able to do it.” Hear what it is for yourself on October 22 at Rivercity Stage.
