Canadian singer-songwriters Dallas Green andSarah Harmer are teaming up for a special tribute performance honouring Gord Downie at the 2018 JUNO Awards on March 25th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
Two-time JUNO winner Harmer and four-time JUNO winner Green (also known as City and Colour and member of Alexisonfire) will pay homage to the Tragically Hip frontman who died in late 2017, after devoting over three decades to entertaining fans across the globe. One of Canada’s most celebrated artists, Downie also had an incredible solo career, with five albums released to date including the 2018 JUNO nominated album Introduce Yerself and the critically acclaimed Secret Path (2016), which explores elements of Canada’s indigenous history. Recognized for this inspiring solo project, Downie was awarded Songwriter of The Year and Group of the Year as frontman for the 16-time JUNO winning band The Tragically Hip at the 2017 JUNO Awards.
“The last time I performed at the JUNO Awards in Vancouver, Gord was standing by my side singing with me,” said Green. “This performance will be with a heavy heart, but also a very proud and honoured one. Gord was the gold standard and everything that I hope to be.”
