Cana­dian singer-song­writer Jann Ar­den brought her hits and wits to the Bad­lands Am­phithe­atre.

On Saturday night, Au­gust 10, Ar­den played to an ap­pre­cia­tive and sold-out crowd. In her trade­mark form, she mixed new and old songs with sto­ries, anec­dotes, and warmth.

The Calgary artist rose to fame with her de­but al­bum Time for Mercy, with the sin­gle I Would Die for You. She fol­lowed it up with Liv­ing un­der June that pro­duced some of her best-loved songs in­clud­ing Good Mother, In­sen­si­tive, and Could I Be Your Girl, which was the sec­ond song she per­formed to the au­di­ence.

To­day she has had a resur­gence with her frank mem­oirs, a pod­cast and her tele­vi­sion show called Jann. Its sec­ond sea­son was re­cently an­nounced.

Open­ing for Ar­den was Luela Charles of Ed­mon­ton. She was nom­i­nated for the Juno for Adult Con­tem­po­rary Al­bum of the year, in 2018 and 2019. In­ter­est­ingly in 2019, she was nom­i­nated along with Ar­den, as well as Michael Bu­ble and Molly John­son. She also won three awards this year at the Ed­mon­ton Mu­sic Awards.

The Bad­lands Am­phithe­ater will be fol­low­ing up Ar­den’s per­for­mance on Au­gust 24 with Walk off the Earth.
