“For this concert- it was very different from the concert the night before and the night before,” begins Juno award-winning singer Connie Kaldor.
“I’m here in this spot, I’m here in this place, I’ve got certain people in this crowd, I want to sing songs to connect them to where they are.”
Kaldor presented people in the Crowsnest Pass area with an intimate show at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, Sunday, October 20th.
The vast majority of songs Connie sang practically begged people to think of the mountainous surroundings although it is interesting to note Kaldor isn’t a Crowsnest Pass native but comes from Saskatchewan.
Kaldor says you can almost here the Rocky Mountains mocking a driver who isn’t from the area, Kaldor says.
“And you live somewhere else- are you mental?” Kaldor quotes the region.
“It is awe-inspiring to see what a mountain looks like when it’s fallen down,” she commented to the Pass Herald about her impressions when she was driving up to the Frank Slide area.
Kaldor’s roots with the Crowsnest Pass area go back as far as 1985-when she played a concert at the opening of the Frank Slide Interpretive Center.Her creative process is deeper than observing beautiful scenery.
“I’m literally inspired by everything I listen to,” she begins, “You’re inspired by great writing always and rhythmic influences, I listen to classical music, country music, I’m in the folk tradition.”

“I’m interested stories and I take a character on as if it’s my own form,” she continues.
“I think music is one of the great things in the world.”
Kaldor continued her musical mountain tour in Cranbrook October22nd and plans to play two nights in Fort MacLeod,
Kaldor graduated from the University of Alberta’s theater program in 1975 but, made a return to music when she formed her own record label, Coyote and released a debut album (One of These Days) in 1981 according to Craig Harris on her MySpace page.
Kaldor has since gone on to win three Juno awards for her childrens’ songs albums including Lullaby Berceuse (1988) and two following releases in 2004 and 2005, according to the site.
