The Port Theatre Society proudly presents: Buffy Sainte-Marie, A Rare Solo Performance

Sunday, November 20 - 7:45 pm

Legendary singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie is supporting her bold new album, Power in the Blood, in this solo show. Winner of the 2015 Polaris Music Prize, Power in the Blood is as eclectic and exciting as ever, and includes a contemporary version of Buffy’s debut hit “It’s My Way” whose lyrics about the road to self-identity are as valid today as they were 50 years ago. As always, Buffy’s music transcends genres and the chameleon artist showcases her inspiring creativity and unique talents. The Port Theatre Society would like to thank the performance sponsors and community partners: Vancouver Island University, The Grand Hotel, Coast Salish Insurance, Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre, Tillicum Lelum Aboriginal Friendship Centre and Mid Island Metis Nation.

Special Meeting of Convocation

On November 21, Sainte-Marie will receive an honorary degree from VIU during a special ceremony at VIU's Malaspina Theatre (Building 310). Theatre doors open at noon, and the ceremony is from 12:30 - 1:15 pm, followed by a reception in the theatre lobby. All members of the VIU community, as well as the general public, are welcome to attend. Or, watch live on this webpage.
