We are thrilled to announce that Étienne Fletcher will be performing at the 2017 Saskatchewan Book Awards Ceremony! Étienne, a Francophone from Regina, has been recognized with receiving the People's Choice Award and Songwriter's Award at Nouvelle Scene and Chant Ouest in 2015. Uniting his English and French roots in his work, Étienne delves into folk, rock, blues, pop, and dance music. Joining him on our stage will be his guitarist Sean McCannell and drummer Gaelan Malloy. This trio's energy is contagious, and their performance will be a wonderful addition to the Awards Ceremony, celebrating Saskatchewan-grown writers and publishers with Saskatchewan-grown music!
