Juno award-winning singer songwriter Stephen Fearing returns to Errington War Memorial Hall on Saturday, May 13 with a tour of his latest album, Every Soul’s a Sailor.

Fearing was born in 1963 in Vancouver and grew up in Dublin, Ireland where his schoolmates included future members of U2. In 1981, he moved to Minneapolis, Minn., and immersed himself in the music scene, learning the fundamentals of songwriting and performing while washing dishes to stay alive.

By 1984, he was back in Vancouver, determined to become a professional musician. In the years since, he’s been named as one of the finest songwriters in Canada and has built a national and international audience for his music, doing it old-school through countless performances at intimate venues and on the concert stages of festivals and theatres across Canada, the U.S., the U.K., and Europe, with appearances at major events like the Reading Festival and WOMAD, to name just a few.

Fearing has released 11 albums as a solo artist, featuring musical guests including: Bruce Cockburn, Margo Timmons, Richard Thompson, Shawn Colvin, and Sarah McLachlan. When not working behind the microphone, Fearing spends time producing records, including Suzie Vinnick’s JUNO Award-nominated album Happy Here.

“With producing, I really enjoy collaborating with other artists. It’s a blast and, as a bonus, gives me a chance to learn and expand my skill set,” he said.

Like the guests on his albums, the many awards and nominations that have come his way over the years speak to the respect he has earned among his peers, presenters, and critics.

Fearing’s show at Errington hall opens at 7:30 p.m. with Qualicum Beach singer songwriter Bev Finch opening the evening’s entertainment.

Doors are at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 at Cranky Dog Music, Heaven on Earth, and the Errington General Store.
