Feist and Sexsmith Welcome 2010 Winter Olympics
Published Jan 24, 2008Feist is set to kindle pre-emptive Olympic fever in British Columbia. To build excitement for the 2010 Winter Olympics, a "Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad Countdown Concert" is being hosted at the Orpheum Theatre on February 12. Performers joining Feist include Ron Sexsmith, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Juno-winning aboriginal artist Leela Gilday, Montreal singer/cellist Jorane, and Suzie McNeil whose "Believe" video was inspired by the Olympics and Paralympics. Feist and the Vancouver Symphony will collaborate on five songs with orchestral arrangements commissioned by the Cultural Olympiad.
Escaping the rest of the cold Canadian winter, the omnipresent chanteuse will be in Australia as part of St. Jerome's Laneway Festival in late February before heading to Europe in May and June to support the February 11 Polydor digital release of her "My Moon, My Man" single in the UK.
