Authenticity is a problem, and I will solve it. I will outline the historical trajectories of the concept, I will consider how authenticity might be essayed within hyper-mediated or ‘postmodern’ societies, and I will demonstrate it. It is going to involve a guitar and a particular way of singing.

Henry Adam Svec’s performances blend a variety of forms, including the academic lecture, singer-songwriter stage banter, and folk music. His recent projects (Peter Mansbridge and the CBCs, The CFL Sessions) have toured all over Canada. He currently is working on a PhD at the University of Western Ontario.
