SIRIUS Canada presents “Canada Comes to Berklee”, a unique all-Canadian concert event on Wednesday, December 12, featuring The New Pornographers, k-os, and Bill King’s Saturday Nite Fish Fry. As part of the 2007-2008 Sovereign Bank Music Series, Canada Comes to Berklee will highlight these acclaimed Canadian musical exports and call attention to the great influence Canadian music has had – and continues to have – on American popular music.
The event will give concertgoers a chance to experience some of the best indie pop, hip-hop, and blues artists to emerge from Canada in recent years. In addition, Saturday Nite Fish Fry will serve as the backing band for a number of Canadian Berklee students, who will open the show with a tribute to Canadian musicians. SIRIUS Canada’s Iceberg 95 host Steve Anthony will host the concert, which will also be broadcast live throughout North America on SIRIUS’ Iceberg 95 channel.
