Saturday, August 12 until August 13th at
805 Broughton St.
k.d. lang has won four GRAMMY® awards, eight Juno Awards, a BRIT, an AMA, a VMA, and four awards from GLAAD. In 1996, she received Canada’s highest civilian honor, the Order of Canada. In 2013, she was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards. She has appeared alongside such musical luminaries as Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Loretta Lynn, and Tony Bennett. “She’s the best singer of her generation,” observed Bennett, who has frequently toured with lang since their 2002 Wonderful World duets album. lang has also contributed to numerous soundtracks, has appeared in many films, and in 2014 made her Broadway debut in the seven time Tony-award nominated musical “After Midnight”. Most recently, she united with indie icon Neko Case and folk star Laura Veirs to create case/lang/veirs, a collaborative record released in June 2016.
“Few singers command such perfection of pitch. Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there.”
Stephen Holden, New York Times
