Vancouver first embraced Ani DiFranco in 1992, when she made her debut appearance at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. Audiences fell head over heels for the feisty young singer-songwriter full of dynamic pizzazz. Armed with only a guitar, talent and a brain she kicked in the door for a generation of followers.

Twenty-some recordings (all on her own Righteous Babe label) and innumerable shows later, the little folk singer that could returns to Vancouver with a couple of pals. She’ll play songs from her latest release, the brilliant New Orleans-infused Red Letter Year, and selections from both ones that came before and new songs from a writer who never stops writing.

Whether the subject is politics or the foibles of being human, this is an artist who continues to deliver honesty, excellence and a few surprises. Seventeen years after her Vancouver debut, Ani DiFranco remains at the top of her game – a significant, outspoken and creatively ingenious artist who just keeps getting better and better.

Ani also performs in Victoria on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at The Royal Theatre.

Presented by Valdine Ciwko and Gary Cristall
