Before the Indigo Girls, before Ani DiFranco, before Tracy Chapman, there was Ferron, whose plaintive, poetic songs provided the soundtrack for a generation of women. One of the most influential writers and performers of music by women, for women and about women, Ferron has released fourteen albums to date and is profiled in films and cultural projects about women, music and queer culture. Ferron has carved a unique path in the Canadian folk scene with her questioning, introspective lyrics. She has the ability to take your breath away with an odd turn of phrase, with her unique voice, with her simple, precise, effective guitar accompaniment. Ferron is a Canadian music icon who will be welcomed by her long-time fans, while undoubtedly gathering many new ones.
