Buffy Sainte-Marie, the iconic singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, social activist, educator, philanthropist and visual artist. Her Polaris Prize winning album, “Power in the Blood” is a reminder that, five decades on, it is still futile to silence artists or to put Sainte-Marie in any single category. She simply doesn’t fit. Yes, she can inspire you to rise up and take action, but she can just as easily melt your heart with a tender ballad. Go back to “Until It’s Time for You to Go” and you’ll be hard-pressed to say when it was written or for whom. It’s evergreen and, like so much of Sainte-Marie’s work, it’s universal.
