Stephen Fearing returns to B.C. roots

Stephen Fearing will play the Dave Dunnet Community Theatre in Oak Bay on Jan.14

Stephen Fearing is celebrating his move to Victoria with a concert at the Dave Dunnet Community Theatre in Oak Bay on Jan.14. His show will feature music from his new album Every Soul’s a Sailor.

Fearing delves deep into the idea of The journey – the various paths we take in love, life, after-love, and the after-life. His songs span a wide range of styles from folk to pop to boot-stomping roots.

“I have traveled consistently between the two poles of solo and ensemble work. With this album I wanted to see if I could bring those two worlds together in the studio and then out on the road,” he explains.

One of the most talked-about songs on the album, Blowhard Nation, is a roots-rock anthem inspired by Donald Trump’s con-man campaign of fear. Released in September 2016, Fearing is donating all of his proceeds from the sale of the single to War Child Canada.

“How sweet to send money to the very people the Trumps of this world are throwing onto the trash heap,” Fearing said.

Fearing is a founding member of the Canadian supergroup Blackie and The Rodeo Kings.

Over the course of his career, he has collaborated with Nick Lowe, Shawn Colvin, Richard Thompson, Pam Tillis, Bruce Cockburn, Sarah McLachlan, Tom Wilson, Colin Linden, Margo Timmins, and much more.  Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Doors at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at Ivy’s Bookshop or Long & McQuade.
