SARAH HARMER Canadiana – Saturday September 23, 2023

September 23, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Sarah Harmer is a multiple award-winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter and
environmental activist. Her solo music career launched with the now classic debut You Were
Here (2000) and includes six critically acclaimed albums, including her latest, Are You Gone,
released via Arts & Crafts in 2020.

of the climate crisis, and the question of loss, Sarah called the album a spiritual successor of

Ontario to protect water, farmland, and biodiversity. She is currently writing songs for a new

“Are You Gone is a journey across time, place, learning, and loss that Sarah Harmer is

an incredibly gracious guide to take us on”

– Folk Alley

“A folky, minor-key song about ice skating at night, with a gentle vocal and a sturdy melody,
that maps a precarious relationship onto the wintry conditions.” (on St. Peter’s Bay)

– The New York Times
