TUESDAY—OCTOBER—30

 

 

n Saturday November 3rd, alt-country and country-folk singer Sarah Jane Scouten will be returning to Harrison with her band the Black Diamond Studs.

 

The concert will begin at 8:00pm on Saturday, November 3rd inside the Harrison Memorial Hall. Doors will open at 7:30pm. Tickets are available at harrisonfestival.com, by calling 604-796-3664, or at the Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart. 


This will be a return visit for Sarah Jane, who brought the house down at the festival in the summer of 2017. A charismatic, internationally touring performer, her star has been rising in recent years, as she has been gaining attention for her songwriting and strong stage presence, as recognized by her three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.


Some of Sarah Jane’s most obvious influences come from early country music. She counts Hank Williams among her favourites, and you can hear shades of great female country singers like Loretta Lynn in there as well. These honky tonk country influences are combined with that of Canadian folk inspirations like Stan Rogers, whose songs were a staple at Sunday morning pancake breakfasts at her family home in Bowen Island, BC.


These early household musical influences bred a knack for songwriting that is evident on Sarah Jane’s most recent CD “When the Bloom Falls From the Rose”.

 

 

Her songwriting often contains modern themes in an outspoken and edgy way, tackling issues from poverty and midwifery. A traditionalist at heart, Sarah Jane Scouten has a flair for honouring the roots of the music while making them relevant and contemporary.

 

Rockabilly, heart aching ballads, and even traditional western Canadian songs make their way into her repertoire. Live, she is a compelling performer, backed by the top notch players in her band.


The concert will begin at 8:00pm on Saturday, November 3rd inside the Harrison Memorial Hall. Doors will open at 7:30pm. Tickets are available at harrisonfestival.com, by calling 604-796-3664, or at the Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart.
