Edith Butler to be inducted Friday at the Songwriters Hall of Fame
The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame will perform singer-songwriter Edith Butler on Friday at the Congrès mondial acadien.
Édith Butler, a native of Paquetville, New Brunswick, is a “pioneer and undisputed ambassador of Acadian culture and traditions,” it is argued.
Since its beginnings in 1964, Édith Butler has sung the culture and history of Acadia on multiple stages of the world.
In the mid-1960s, she sang in Folk Festivals in Canada and the United States alongside Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Pete Seeger, the organization said in a statement.
The year 1973 marked the beginning of his career in Quebec thanks to a first album at Columbia titled “Before being distressed”.
Édith Butler was admitted earlier this month to the Order of Arts and Letters of the French Republic. An Officer of the Order of Canada, she has already received an award from the Governor General of Canada for the Performing Arts and a SOCAN Award of Excellence for all of her work. The Canadian Press
