April 8 – 10 at 7:30pm
Stephen Fearing’s music embodies a fierce intelligence, a haunting candor, and a steady-handed pursuit of fleeting beauty. He exudes an abiding love for his craft and a respect for his audience that is reflected in two Juno awards and a touring circuit that includes festival stages and concert halls across Canada, Europe and the United States. A beguiling teller of tales and a singularly intense instrumentalist, Fearing is an alluring entertainer – heartbreaking, expansive and full of mirth – with a clear, honorable voice that lifts you out into his wide world and “brings you back home to yourself”.
Late in 2019 Stephen released his 11th solo album, The Unconquerable Past. Long heralded as one of Canada’s great storytellers, this album is a collection of ten songs that speak of learning from the past, the gift of time, reflections on ageing love and the urgent need for compassion in our world. Stephen’s time with Canadian roots supergroup Blackie and The Rodeo Kings has definitely influenced this body of work with a rich vein of roots/Americana running throughout the songs and arrangements. Since Stephen’s touring plans were cut short this year, he is very much looking forward to playing songs from The Unconquerable Past and from his earlier recordings with a smattering of BARK songs thrown in for good measure.
