Sarah McLachlan has been a force on the Canadian music scene since the late 1980s. As an organizer of Lilith Fair in the mid-’90s she was one of the best-known female musicians in North America.
The mother of two daughters now, she’s probably been a little busier on the domestic front in recent years, which perhaps accounts for her lower profile as a musician. But in January she did release a new studio album called Shine On which was reportedly her artistic response to the death of her father.
Following the album release, McLachlan embarked on a 30-city U.S. tour, and now she’s following that up with a 21-city Canadian tour. On Sunday Nov. 2 she’s in town to play a show at Conexus Arts Centre. Start time is 8 p.m., and tickets are in the $50 to $90 range. To give you a sense of where McLachlan’s at these days in her music here’s the video for “In Your Shoes” off Shine On:
