A BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW WITH SARAH HARMER

Hot off the heels of a new album (Oh Little Fire) and last week’s exclusive iTunes Session EP, Sarah Harmer was in Montreal last week to rock out at Cabaret Juste Pour Rire. After her previous offering of folksie-bluegrass, “rocking out” has become a greater priority for the Ontario-based songstress. Her new album  is “a gust of rock more forceful than anything she’s played since her mid-‘90s days with rambunctious Kingston rockers Weeping Tile.” But despite exchanging fiddles for electric guitars and a cooler, grittier soundscape, Harmer is still the introspective, lovelorn woman that Canadians have known to love and appreciate. We caught up with her backstage to talk about the new album, her activism and what she’s growing in her garden.
