In Conversation With... Robbie Robertson

In celebration of his highly anticipated memoir Testimony, legendary songwriter and guitarist Robbie Robertson joins George Stroumboulopoulos for a unique onstage conversation about his life, music, and artistic influences both with The Band and as a solo artist, as well as his collaborations with award-winning musicians and filmmakers such as Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Dylan, and Martin Scorsese.

Robbie Robertson was the guitarist and principal songwriter in The Band. He grew up in Toronto and on the Brantford Six Nations Reserve before heading to Arkansas to join Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks. He has produced many movie soundtracks for Martin Scorsese, including Raging Bull (80), and released How to Become Clairvoyant (11), his latest record as a solo artist. Robertson is also one of the coauthors of the children's book Legends, Icons & Rebels (13).

Patrons will receive a signed copy of Testimony for each paid ticket to this event.

This event is co-presented with Indigo.
