[Editor’s note: To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Encyclopedia of Music in Canada, we’ve asked our EMC staff to tell us about their favourite Canadian musician.]
One of my favourite Canadian artists is Sarah Harmer. As a subject editor for the Encyclopedia of Music in Canada, I was asked to write an article about Harmer in summer 2010. To get myself started, I visited her playlist on CBC Radio 3’s website. I was immediately drawn to her playful songwriting, expansive vocal range and memorable lyrics.
