The celebrated multi-platinum, award winning artist, Jann Arden, will  perform two concerts in the Kootenays March 22 in Trail at the Charles Bailey Theatre, and March 23 at Cranbrook’s Key City theatre.

“We are very excited to bring an artist of this calibre to an intimate theatre setting, right across the province of B.C.” said F.J. Hurtak, President of the Kootenay Concert Connection. “It will be one very special night for the entire audience because Jann Arden is a Canadian original and a brilliant multi-dimensional talent.”

Jann Arden is a Canadian singer songwriter, broadcaster and author who catapulted onto the Canadian music scene in 1993 with the release of her debut album “Time for Mercy”, featuring the hit single, “I Would Die For You”.  A year later with “Living Under June”, she would have her career breakout hit,” Insensitive”,  that would solidify her position in the music world.

Arden has released 12 albums with 19 top ten singles to her credit. Her most recent recording, “Everything Almost” was released in 2014. With Grammy Award winning producer Bob Rock behind the console, the 11-track disc is considered to be Jann’s finest work-progressive, yet retaining the magic that is distinctly Jann. Recently she just released a much anticipated Christmas album, just in time for the holiday season.

In her career to date she has received eight Juno Awards, 10 SOCAN Awards, four Western Canada Music Awards, a Much Music Video Award, three Prairie Music Awards and an Alberta Recording Industry Association Award.

In addition to being a singer/songwriter, Arden is an author of note. She has written 3 books- If I Knew, Don’t You Think I’d Tell You One Damn Thing, That’s All I Know, and her best selling self-penned memoir, Falling Backwards. Arden is also a much in demand speaker, peppering her words of wisdom with her signature humour.

In 2010, Jann took on broadcast duties as the host of “Being Jann”, an hour long talk show on CBC Radio, and in 2011 she sat in the judge’s chair for Canada Sings on Global TV. She has also made several appearances on television sitcoms including Corner Gas, Ellen, and CBC’s Rick Mercer report.

Arden’s philanthropic work has included World Vision and she has performed in Live 8 and MAC Cosmetics Fashions Cares AIDS Benefits.

Tickets for the Kootenay shows go on sale Oct 29th at the Charles Bailey box office in Trail or can be obtained by calling 1-866-9669. In Cranbrook on the same date, tickets can be purchased at the Key City Theatre box office or online at www.keycitytheatre.com or by phone at 250-426-7006..
