Innovative Canadian Song-smith Jane Siberry comes to The Met

 Canada’s iconic singer songwriter Jane Siberry comes to The Met on Thursday 16 May at 8pm.


Often likened to Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell, Jane Siberry has become renowned both for her hauntingly beautiful music and her strength as a creative, innovative artist. Her work has spanned three decades, with the release of 14 studio albums and performances on concert stages around the world.

Siberry’s boundary-pushing body of work ranges from new wave rock and art pop to jazz, folk, gospel and classical and have featured collaborations with the likes of Brian Eno, Nigel Kennedy, Peter Gabriel and Joe Jackson. Her 1985 album The Speckless Sky was a huge critical and commercial success and the follow up albums The Walking, Bound By Beauty, When I Was A Boy and her signature song Calling All Angels cemented her status as one of the world’s foremost performance artists.


Jane is supported at The Met by Del Barber, an independent folk, Americana, and alt-country singer-songwriter and musician. So far, Barber has won two Western Canadian Music Awards (for Independent Album of the Year and Roots Solo Recording of the Year).


Tickets for the event are £17. For further information or to book please phone The Met’s ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
