This Child Tour

A personal call to action.

Susan is embarking on her 30th Anniversary of This Child Tour with special guest Angela Amarualik, who is also an Inuk artist who was born and raised in Igloolik, Nunavut and has travelled across Canada performing as a throat singer, folk singer, and pop music artist.

Susan’s writing of This Child brought her to a personal call to action, get on the platform and speak up, learn, heal, share, this has been her work for these 30 years.

Susan is Canada’s first Inuk artist to win a Juno (4 in total), a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for lifetime artistic achievement, and she is an officer of the Order of Canada. Susan holds several Honourary Doctorate degrees and has held command performances.

Susan’s journey as a singer-songwriter began in the early 1990s when she began her writing and recording career. In Susan’s early reflections was the discovery of the platform as learning, sharing and healing, this inspired her major label debut album This Child, released in January 1995.

Susan has since written and recorded 10 albums, founded the Arctic Rose Foundation, authored two children’s books and has a personal memoir in the works.

This performance is part of the Shuman Insurance Presentation Series and is show sponsored by a generous donation from Friends of the Lougheed.
