Published Dec 13, 2013For the last couple years, Vancouver's Sing It Forward concert has gathered together some noteworthy Canadian acts for an acoustic charity concert to benefit St. James Music Academy. The event will return to the Vogue Theatre on January 9, and the bulk of the performers has now been confirmed.
The artists have been announced over the past week. They include Mother Mother, the Sheepdogs, Hey Ocean!, Kathryn Calder, Dustin Bentall, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald and Hannah Epperson. One more act will apparently be announced on December 30.
Update: Said the Whale has been added to bill.
Tickets cost $25 and they're on sale right here.
Over the past two years, the event has raised over $70,000 to provide underprivileged kids with music education via the Saint James Music Academy, and that number will apparently pass $100,000 this year.
Numerous videos showing past Sing It Forward artists performing with children's choirs can be seen over at the event's website. The 2013 show was turned into a live album, which can be streamed or purchase below.
