Connie Kaldor

“Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, something roars in and it turns you about.” Connie Kaldor writes this and more about the unexpected twists and turns of life and love. She could well be writing about her personal artistic complexities. Music pundits have tried to define the essence of the prairie-born acoustic performer for over two decades, but even the most eloquent have fallen short of perfection.

One of Canada’s leading contemporary folk artists, Connie Kaldor uses her gift for songwriting and performing to share a wide range of emotions. While her knack for writing humorous songs inspired one reviewer to call her a cross between Woody Allen and Woody Guthrie, Kaldor has been equally effective reflecting on more serious issues. She has been nominated for multiple Juno awards, and has received three for Best Children’s Album.
