Buffy Sainte-Marie joins the 3rd JUNOs 365 Songwriters’ Circle, presented by CBC Music and SOCAN, in association with Music Publishers Canada.

This virtual jam session will stream online Friday, May 29 at 8pm ET, and will be hosted by Halifax’s own Joel Plaskett, joined by Buffy, City and Colour, and Sarah Harmer.

Normally a highlight of JUNO Week, which was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the JUNOs Songwriters’ Circle has traditionally gathered some of Canada’s finest singer-songwriters for an informal jam session of songs and stories. In the absence of that perennially popular event, CBC Music has decided to produce something similar, but with musicians and their guests performing in their homes rather than onstage.

Be sure to tune in!

On Sunday, May 17, Buffy Sainte-Marie reads her brand new children’s book Hey Little Rockabye – A Lullaby For Pet Adoption on Facebook Live for a special #HappyEveryDay session with AIR MILES Canada.

Tune in Sunday at 4:00pm ET, don’t miss it!

Hey Little Rockabye shares lyrics from a new song Buffy wrote to comfort her rescue animals when they first arrive home from the shelter. When you have your copy of the book, you can read along to the song “Hey Little Rockabye”, available on streaming services. You can also read along to the acapella performance of “Hey Little Rockabye” by Buffy, in the video below!

Accompanied by lovable illustrations by award-winning illustrator Ben Hodson, Hey Little Rockabye is perfect for reading—and singing—to your furry friends while curled up at home—and a fun way to teach kids the power of love and caring for all Earth’s creatures.

On Wednesday, May 13, Buffy Sainte-Marie will perform on the final installment of the Whiskey Sour Happy Hour, presented by Ed Helms and The Bluegrass Situation.
