Nelson-based, ROAMedia is pleased to present singer-songwriter Lindsay Ferguson at the Capitol Theatre on Friday, June 17 at 8 p.m.
Born in Bermuda, raised in Prince Edward County, Ontario, and now based out of Wakefield, Quebec, Ferguson has been honing her skills and life experience touring and writing music in Switzerland for the past year.
Ferguson’s music lies somewhere between chaos and calm. She is dialed into an eclectic frequency, touching upon the fever and fury of life itself.
Ferguson’s first album Sound was voted No. 2 Canadian album of 2007.
Ferguson is in the process of recording her second full-length album, Monkeys Under Stars, which she will be debuting across Canada in 2011, with Nelson being a key stop between Calgary and Vancouver shows.
Also playing a solo set will be Nelson’s own Ross Steed, who is working with Kris Ledrew and others on a new upcoming album ,Nothing without Love.
Proceeds from the event will be going to the non-profit Tipi Camp to support its new youth initiative.
A Canadian independent musician with a rock, pop and soul sound, Ferguson immerses herself into the songs she sings. Ferguson has a voice that can send shivers down your spine and has been compared at times to Joni Mitchell, Sinead O’Connor, Bjork and Kate Bush. She has shared the stage with the likes of Steve Earle, Kathleen Edwards, Ron Sexsmith, YOAV and the Moody Blues.
Ross Steed is a local artist who is currently producing his first album. Steed’s songs are about sharing, inspiration and relationships with a tapestry of Kootenay experience laced into their evolution. This will launch his latest material and preview the forthcoming album.
Tickets are on sale now at the Capitol Theatre and are $15 for adults and $10 for students, children or seniors.
