Sarah to play 8th Annual White Ribbon Concert

Image hosted by

Sarah will be returning back to the Phoenix concert hall in Toronto on June 7th to play cover songs in support of the White Ribbon Campaign. Thanks to Jareed for finding this news in Chart Attack.

Update, May 27:
Maple Music has worked with the promoter of the White Ribbon Concert to set up tickets and they are waiving ticketing fees with the hopes of raising as much awareness and money for this great cause. To purchase tickets through Maple Music, visit the Boutique page at and click on the tickets link there.

The NXNE Music And Film Festival and the White Ribbon Campaign have announced the lineup for the 8th Annual White Ribbon Concert, to be held on Tuesday, June 7, 2005.

Confirmed participants include guitarist Alex Lifeson of Rush, All Systems Go's lead vocalist and guitarist John Kastner, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, singer-songwriters Bruce Cockburn , Ron Sexsmith, Sarah Slean and Emm Gryner and Alexisonfire guitarist/vocalist Dallas Green, who will perform with singer Jully Black . NXNE's 2004 Fan Choice award winner Shawn Hewitt And The National Strike will start the evening off. More names will be announced shortly.

The all-ages concert will follow the traditional, cover-songs-only format, but there will be no house band — a change that one publicity agent “is sure to result in even more musical minglings than before.”

Another change in this year's event will be the absence of the Tea Party's Jeff Martin. He was one of the White Ribbon Concert's main Toronto organizers, but this year he's letting some new blood run the show.

The event will be held at The Phoenix in Toronto. The first 100 NXNE 2005 wristband holders in line will be admitted free of charge. Otherwise, tickets for the event are $25 and go on sale on May 6, 2005 at The Phoenix Box Office, Rotate This, Soundscapes and through Ticketmaster.

For $75 a pop, VIP tickets entitle the bearer to goodie bags, free food, cocktails and better opportunities to meet the musicians. All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the White Ribbon Campaign.

The White Ribbon Campaign was established in 1991 when a group of Canadian men decided to speak out against violence against women. It has since become the largest effort in the world of its kind. The white ribbon is a symbol of men's opposition to men's violence against women.

Back to the River's Edge Festival, Almonte ON

It appears that Sarah may be playing the River Edge Festival in Almonte Ontario on Saturday June 11th. Almonte was given a 'thank you' in the Day One liner notes as it was the area of the cottage she has taken refuge in. Sarah's appearance can't be confirmed at the moment as the source of the information has just updated the year from 2004, to reflect 2005.

During the credits of Wednesday's E-Talk Daily, a first glimpse of the Mary video was available. The style looked simular to the animation of the Day One video mixed with live action from Sarah. Nothing else is known about the video at this point but thanks to Flare for the heads up about the clip being on E-talk.

Here is glimpse of the 3 scenes shown in the 20 second clip:
