Songbird North: Where Writers Sing and Tell

Tuesday November 17, 2020
6pm PST | 9pm EST via Zoom

Featuring: Ian Foster, James Keelaghan, Raine Hamilton, Shari Ulrich (host)

SongBird North is back, and it’s going digital! Over the past 25 years, audiences have followed this beloved songwriters showcase through 100+ performances in a succession of venues, from bars to churches to its most recent (and favourite) home at the Roundhouse. Now we’re adding a virtual Zoom stage to the list! On November 17, host Shari Ulrich will be joined online by songwriters from across Canada: Ian Foster from Newfoundland; James Keelaghan from Ontario; and Raine Hamilton from Manitoba. Although we cannot gather in person, audiences can still expect great songs, great stories, and unique insights into the creative process and an opportunity to get up close and personal with the music and the artists in a new and different way, from the comfort of home!

SongBird North: Where Writers Sing and Tell is produced by Shari Ulrich for the Songwriters Association of Canada. The SAC gratefully acknowledges the support of the SOCAN Foundation. For more information on the SAC’s mandate, activities and membership programs, please visit
