Headlining the 3rd annual Kingsville Folk Music Festival, at Lakeside Park in Kingsville, Ontario Canada on August 12-14, 2016 is Buffy Sainte-Marie!
A Cree activist, Oscar and Polaris winner, perhaps you know Sainte-Marie from her 1960s protest anthems Universal Soldier, open-hearted love songs Until Its Time for You to Go, incendiary powwow rock Starwalker, or the juggernaut pop hit Up Where We Belong, which Sainte-Marie co-wrote and Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes sang for the soundtrack to An Officer and a Gentleman.
