Are we dreaming? We hope not as we announce two of the greatest trail blazers of the grass roots music era – Buffy Sainte-Marie as a musician, peace activist and rights warrior for her nation's indigenous people; Richard Thompson as a fearless explorer through the rootsy wilderness of music and songwriting and emerging as one of the true greats. We have the red carpet ready to roll out!

Academy Award winner Buffy Sainte-Marie’s audacious attitude to life on and off the stage has inspired people around the world for over four decades. By age 24, Buffy Sainte-Marie had appeared all over Europe, Canada, Australia and Asia, receiving honors, medals and awards, which continue to this day. Her song Until It’s Time for You to Go was recorded by Elvis and Cher. Her Universal Soldier became the anthem of the peace movement. As one of the most spellbinding artists of our time, Buffy Sainte-Marie gracefully combines a high-energy stage presence with cerebral songs that tell powerful stories.
