Hearing k.d. lang perform at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival reveals an inspired artist having the time of her life. Songs from her new album ‘Sing it Loud’ literally vibrate with energy, and her new band invigorate songs from k.d.’s back catalogue.
k.d. lang first appeared on the music scene in 1983, playing the local Edmonton community halls, pubs and bars. She immediately garnered a huge following and in less than two short years she walked in front of her biggest crowd at this very festival.
Her talent is undeniable and her career has gone global, but for one night, k.d. came home to sing, and dance, and celebrate with the old gang.
This concert wrapped up the 2011 Edmonton Folk Music Festival, and it was truly a k.d. lang lovefest.
