Sierra Noble joins the Canadian Pacific Spirit Train

Posted on

Sierra Noble will be joining the Canadian Pacific Spirit Train on its Canadian tour starting in September of 2008 in honor of the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver. The tour will start in the host city, and will have 10 stops across the country. The train will feature six time Juno award Winnipeg guitarist Colin James and his band, as well as Olympic and Paralympic athletes. The Winnipeg stop of the tour is scheduled for October 4, 2008.

Noble will be singing and performing at each stop with a house band, and will be joined by various local and First Nations musicians, which will be announced at a later date. At each of the stops you will have the chance to meet and greet with the athletes and participate in Olympic themed events. It will include an interactive sports display.

This is a notable step in 18 year old Noble’s career, similar to being asked to play at the 90th anniversary of Vimy Ridge in France as an ambassador for Canada. Noble’s agent pitched the idea to the producers of the tour to include Noble on the bill and the producers of the tour agreed that Noble would be a great addition to the team as Noble can personally relate to the athletes on the tour. “Though we come from completely different worlds, sports and music, we all share a common relentless dedication to what we love. I think that the bringing together of musicians and athletes on this tour will be really special for that reason,” says Noble.

Noble also played at the Pan Am Games in Winnipeg in 1999. “I was asked to play at different places around the city for the games, places like Old Market Square, and at the Forks in front of the "Canada House" that they had set up in support of the Canadian athletes for the games,” says Noble. “I remembered one day I was playing at the Forks and a man from the Vancouver 2010 organizers came up to me and got my business card and said, ‘I'm going to keep your card, I know you're young now but by 2010, you're going to be the perfect age, and I know you're going to go somewhere one day.’ I never forgot that, and especially now that I've been asked to be on this tour, that memory really made me smile,” says Noble.

Noble and James have plans to jam during the off hours of the tour.
