Performance Art Saskatchewan
A fiery blend of urban and rural music that is forging a new voice for the prairies. Fafard’s music is world class, but his heart and home are deeply rooted in his home, Saskatchewan’s Qu’Appelle Valley.
The Joël Fafard Band’s latest CD, “Head Smashed In”, is a rich, spontaneous blend of folk, pop and blues; a musical brew of Fafard’s roots. From Canada to New Zealand, Fafard developed his craft traveling the world performing his eclectic verse. Moving across Canada, he settled back into his home in Saskatchewan where he produced his first solo album in 1996, “Fierce Warmth”.
