Update: Sarah did not play the 2006 Govenor Gerneral Awards this year. The quote CBC provided for this year's Award show reflected 2004.


Sarah made a second consecutive return to the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Gala that took place on November 4, 2006 at National Arts Center in Ottawa.

"A glittering evening of entertainment honours seven outstanding Canadian performers at the 13th annual Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Gala, hosted by Gregory Charles. The Gala, taped at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa in early November features performances by Emmylou Harris, Jackie Richardson and her daughter Kim Richardson, singer/songwriter Sarah Slean, The Drums of Arashi Daiko, George Gao on the erhu an ancient Chinese instrument accompanied by the National Arts Centre Orchestra, sopranos Marie-Josée Lord and Lyne Fortin with baritone Gino Quilico and Gregory Charles in a rousing finale with a 50-member choir." - CBC

Rockcrew who have promoted some of Sarah's past visits to Kingston, are currently selling tickets for a February 2, 2007 date at the Sydenhem Church, Kingston ON.

Update Jan 12, 2007
I have been advised the following..

*Deleted* - Essentially the show has not been confirmed, for confirmed shows see the official site.

I would recommend people hold off on further ticket purchases until the situation can be clarified. Hope to have some updates Monday evening.

Update Jan 13, 2007
Information has been updated on the promoter's site and the proposed show date will likely change. At this time everything to do with the show should be considered tentative. Visit for confirmed tour dates.

Free Toronto MTV Show - Dec 11, 06

Taken from
Sarah will be playing a free show for MTV Canada on December 11, 2006 in Toronto.

"For free tickets call: 1.888.491.6888

Show up by 5:30pm at the Masonic Temple
888 Yonge St, Toronto"

I currnetly do not get MTV Canada and am unaware if these Live shows are actually broadcasted on it. I do know for earlier live events such as Sam Roberts and K-OS MTV Canada could show excerpts, CTV doing a weekend 1 hr show, and MTV US picking it pieces for a special too. They do archive the shows on (overdrive) that requires Exploer among other requirements.

For those under 18, you can try use this release:

Sarah was recently interviewed in this venue, The Masonic Temple, for CTV's Etalk daily and has played a concert here when the venue was used for the Mike Bullard show.
