Spirit of Rasputin’s presents

Sophie Léger & Kristine St-Pierre in concert

Saturday, February 15 at 8:00 pm
Westboro Masonic Hall

Singer-songwriter Sophie Léger, performing in both English and French, brings to her deeply-felt lyrics a voice that ranges from soprano to tenor. Her songs draw on her Franco-Ontarian roots and broader folk traditions. Her first album was composed in Haiti and recorded in Thailand. She created her second in Yellowknife, where for ten years she was a well-loved performer and teacher. Sophie sang at the Vancouver Winter Olympics as part of a Northwest Territories collective. She is currently working on her third album, which honours her folk roots while weaving in gospel, jazz and blues. She’ll be joined by Nico Siemens (rhythm guitar and bass), Izzy Martinez (lead guitar) and Patrick Duxbury (flute and sax).

Kristine St-Pierre is a folk chansonnière with a soul-searching ballad style and a rollicking bluesy flair. After two bilingual albums, her francophone album La promesse was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in French Songwriter of the Year category, and for Francophone Artist of the Year by the Country Music Association of Ontario. The title track  reached Number 2 on SiriusXM Franco Country. Kristine is also a strong advocate for equality, using her voice and expertise to advance the rights of women and girls. She has performed in several countries in sub-Saharan Africa, and most recently in Ukraine. She’ll be joined by cellist MEA.
