Academy Award winner Buffy Sainte-Mari's audacious attitude to life on and off the stage has inspired people around the world for over four decades. Not one to rest on her accomplishments, Buffy Sainte-Marie has never stopped channelling her infinite musical and artistic creativity. 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. This rare and primal blend is a welcome joy to festivals and concert halls around the world. In 2009, her 2008 release Running for the Drum (Shock Records) garnered twelve major music awards in Canada, including a Juno Award, an Aboriginal's People Choice Music Award and an induction into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Described as "one of the most successful and versatile songwriters of the last half-century" (The Guardian), Buffy Sainte-Marie's international hit "Until It's Time for You to Go," was recorded by Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Barbara Streisand and Cher; and "Universal Soldier" became the anthem of the peace movement.
