Upcoming Concerts

Just a reminder that has announced new concerts for Sarah in Toronto in addition to her concerts this weekend in Newfoundland posted under the tour page.

After the War (More info)

Thanks to Jan and the good people at for a few more details are available on the song titled After the War. It was written and released on the album "Two Houses' by Paul Gross 10 years ago and inspired by the events of Passchendaele.

In interview from 2005 Paul was asked about using the song in the film.
Not sure that we'll use any contemporary music in the movie at the moment. I've been leaning toward using compositions from the period. I think I'm going to use Alina, Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Part for the last 5-10 minutes of the movie. I'm pretty sure that will guarantee there won't be a dry eye in the house.
- Pual Gross, 2005,
In 200y he was asked about the use of After the War in Passchendaele again. He responded;

I don't think I'll be putting any contemporary music into Passchendaele - in fact, we're planning to do a big orchestral score which doesn't sit so well with strumming guitars. On the song-writing front, David Keeley and I are discussing doing another recording session when we both have the time clear on our schedules.
- Paul Gross, 2007,

You can sample the original song on youtube.

Sarah Sings for the Movie Theme of Passchendaele

Sarah Slean sings a new song titled, After The War, for the Canadian made film Passchendaele. The film premiered at this year's Toronto International Film Festival and may be released across Canada later this Fall. Thanks to Yen on for pointing out that the song is played over the final credits. It has been mentioned that film director Paul Gross co-wrote the song but I have yet to find a solid confirmation that.

MSN/Sympatico caught up with Sarah during the film festival to gather her thoughts on the after parties and who she might be voting for in the next federal election. You can read that article and funny headline here. Toronto Life also indicates that Sarah attended the Hello Couples party.

The new pictures of Sarah shown in recent editorials were taken at this year's Film Fest and can be found on GettyImages.

Update 2008/10/14 - An image of Sarah at the Hello party on the red carpet can be found here.

Daria is a huge Sarah Slean fan and she got chills when she heard the song "No Place At All" as it captures the heart of the book and the struggles of the main character.

Chart Magazine writes more about the artcile including a new picture of Sarah and a poll against Feist to who would be more attractive to elves.

If you missed the announcement on Sarah's official site, her second poetry book the Baroness is now available at selected book stores.
