There’s a cinematic quality to the beautiful lyrics...Simply and directly, this is lovely music” (Americana-UK.com)

The West End Cultural Centre is pleased to be partnering with the National Arts Centre to present a livestream with Jeffery Straker on Wednesday, May 12, 2021. Tickets are available online now at various prices to hear Straker performing songs from his new album, ‘Just Before Sunrise’.

Jeffery Straker grew up taking piano lessons in small-town Saskatchewan and swears he was born under the piano on the family farm. Since then he’s gone on to perform over 100 shows per year across Canada, Europe and Latin America and was named the 2020 Saskatchewan Music Awards Roots/Folk Artist of the Year. The storytelling nature of his songs has the power to transport a listener - out onto a lake in Canada’s North or to the main street of a prairie town. Described as “a clever lyricist with an energetic piano style” his songwriting has drawn critical comparisons to the likes of Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson & Billy Joel.

“The songs on this album are a soundtrack of reflection and I think they reach an optimistic conclusion,” says Straker. “In a way, the listener is asked: ‘Where are you headed?...and...Where would you like to be headed’? (often those are two different places). The victories and losses we experience in life inevitably shape our viewpoint and our path and in that sense the last few years of my life informed this record. A significant part of that was 2 years ago, suddenly & unexpectedly having my mom pass away. The result of the grieving, questioning, revelation and resolution I experienced has been a deep gratitude for the optimistic outlook on life that I hold. I really hope you like these songs.”

Tickets for the livestream are available now online at https://www.gign.ca/jeffery-straker- winnipeg/. Ticket-buyers have the option of various prices depending on the number attendees.
