Hi! You've found the website for Canadian singer/songwriter/storyteller Kate Ferris and Ferris Fare Music! Thanks for stopping by!
It's the start of a new season teaching `ukulele classes for the Winnipeg Folk Festival (45 students in the 3 levels!) as well as traveling around the province as part of the Artists in the Schools program. And of course, there's always a new song to write!
THE BIG NEWS: My CD, "Marie's Forest" was released on Thursday, September 10th at The Park Theatre in Winnipeg, MB Canada - and it was a sold out show! I've wanted to make this album for years, and after a lot of time in the studio with the wonderful Dan Donahue, it's finally here! It was an evening to remember, and I'll be posting photos soon. It was almost overwhelming to see so many friends and family in the audience. Plus, all 80 of the little White Spruce trees found homes, and are being planted as 'trees in Marie's Forest'. I'll also post some of the photos and stories people have been sending me of where they've planted their tree.
Also, I'm now set-up to accept PayPal for those of you who would like to order the CD. Check the "Marie's Forest" and "Merchandise" pages. It's so easy!
Also, on Saturday, November 21st I'll be sharing the stage with one of my favourite singer/songwriters: Deborah Romeyn! She and I will kick off the Ship & Plough's 'Ventrar Tonlist' Winter Concert Series, with guest Dan Donahue for a very special evening of song. Tickets $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Purchasing in advance is highly recommended since this one's going to be a sell-out! Contact the Ship & Plough at (204) 642-5276 or go on-line atwww.shipandplough.ca If you're anywhere in the neighbourhood, we'd love to see you there!
Quote of the moment:
"There are things that music can do that language could never do, that painting can never do, or sculpture. Music is capable of going directly to the source of the mystery. It doesn't have to explain it. It can simply celebrate it."
