Patchwork is kicking off 2012 with a stellar show featuring multiple Juno Award winner Stephen Fearing. Stephen’s April 2011 show at Patchwork attracted our biggest audience to date and no wonder – Fearing is one of Canada’s most engaging and entertaining performers.
Mixing powerful lyrics, creative arrangements and brilliant guitar playing, Fearing has built up a loyal and dedicated international audience with a wide range of songs – from his 1988 release Out to Sea, to his 2007 Juno winning album Yellowjacket. He is a founding member of the highly successful Canadian roots rock super trio, Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, and has collaborated with many artists including Shawn Colvin, Richard Thompson, Sarah McLachlan, Tom Wilson and Colin Linden.
His latest recording, The Man Who Married Music is a ‘Best Of’ collection, with tracks handpicked by Stephen, featuring some of the best music he has released over his career as well as two brand new tracks No Dress Rehearsal and The Big East West.
The consistent quality of work produced over Stephen Fearing’s two decades plus career has earned him a West Coast Music Award for Best Folk Music Recording and five Juno Award nominations as a solo artist and a faithful international fan base. On top of that, Blackie & the Rodeo Kings have released seven highly praised and award-winning albums including a Juno Award for “BARK”. Their seventh album ‘Kings and Queens’ was released in June 2011 and pairs the band with some of their favorite female singers and friends and some of the biggest names in roots, blues and jazz including Roseanne Cash, Holly Cole and Serena Ryder.
