Magic Is Afoot

11.07.2013

Native American singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie performed in Helsinki at the Savoy. Finnish folk singer Hector introduced Buffy and anticipated that we were about to experience a magical evening. Indeed! Buffy Sainte-Marie is a legend and I can’t believe my luck that I got to see her perform live. This lady is so talented and smart! She talks about the rights of indigenous peoples and also environmental issues. And she has a singing voice like no other. She had a band with her but I liked it best when she just sang and played her guitar without the band backing. Beautiful! Universal Soldier, Little Wheel Spin and Spin, I’m Gonna Be a Country Girl Again and Cripple Creek were among my favourites. Thank you Buffy!
