If ever there was an official soundtrack for the Canadian Prairies, Connie Kaldor’s music would be featured on it. Connie Kaldor is a veteran Canadian folk singer-songwriter. For over 30 years, she has toured the country constantly, and released over 14 albums. If you get a chance to catch her live, don’t hesitate. Her live shows are an entertaining mix of humour, stories, and Connie’s beautiful voice singing the stories of our country. This summer we our roads crossed once again at the Live from the Rock festival in Red Rock, Ontario on the shores of Lake Superior. It was my pleasure to have a conversation with Connie about her career, the art of songwriting, and her receiving the Order of Canada.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
