Buffy Sainte-Marie performs at the Brooklyn Bowl, London, on 13 August

Folk. Country. Protest Anthems. Love songs. Pop hits. Academy Award Winner for her timeless hit “Up Where We Belong” Buffy Sainte-Marie brings her honest and raw musical canon to Brooklyn Bowl for a rare intimate London appearance.

Buffy Sainte-Marie’s bold new album, Power in the Blood, begins where it all started more than 50 years ago, with a contemporary version of “It’s My Way,” the title track of her 1964 debut. Its message, about the road to self-identity and the conviction to be oneself, still resonates with the Cree singer-songwriter, activist, educator, visual artist, and winner of countless awards (Oscar, Juno, and Golden Globe, among them).

Perhaps you know Sainte-Marie from her 1960s protest anthems (“Universal Soldier”), open-hearted love songs (“Until It’s Time for You to Go”), incendiary powwow rock (“Starwalker”), or the juggernaut pop hit “Up Where We Belong,” which Sainte-Marie co-wrote and Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes sang for the soundtrack to An Officer and a Gentleman.

Event Info Venue Information: Brooklyn Bowl London Peninsula Square London, United Kingdom, SE10 0DX

More Info Power in the Blood also includes odes to the sanctity of life ("We Are Circling") and the splendor of Mother Nature ("Carry It On," a song so euphoric and empowering that it should be taught in schools and performed at the Olympics).
