About the event

Singer-songwriter pianist Jeffery Straker grew up taking piano lessons in a small Saskatchewan farming town on the Canadian prairies, raised by a church organist mother and an auctioneer father. He’s gone on to perform over 100 shows per year across Canada, Europe and Latin America.  Serving up a rootsy-storytelling brand of song with rich narratives, his song writing has the ability to transport a listener - out onto a lake in Canada’s North or to the main street of a prairie town.  

Across 8 albums to date critical comparisons have been drawn to the likes of Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson, & Bill Joel while performances have seen him live on BBC radio in the UK, in concert with symphony orchestras and on festival and theatre stages. Named 'Roots-Folk Artist of the Year' in consecutive Saskatchewan Music Awards Jeffery has also been honoured with a Western Canadian Music Award.  The Saskatchewan Country Music Awards have twice named him keyboard player of the year.  In 2022 he toured 10 shows across the UK (including the Canadian High Commission in London) with return invitations from festivals and venues alike.  

He connects with audiences wherever he performs and to that end CBC Radio recently said: “Straker has a way of drawing us into his world and making us feel like we’re a welcome guest; an old friend he’s ready to catch up with”.   Jeffery is delighted to be returning to the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre.
