Indigenous Day Live is coming up on Saturday, and they've got a stellar list of artists playing Festival Stage in the evening. The show runs from 7:30 to 10:30, but they have activities like traditional storytelling and games, Indigenous Day Live Pow Wow, a skateboard competition, artisans, food vendors, the Winnipeg “Best Bannock” competition, the APTN Kids tent and much more going on all day.
Some of the artists playing are local and some are from afar. Here's who Indigenous Day Live is treating you to:
EVENING CONCERT – 7:30pm to 10:30pm
WALK OFF THE EARTH WITH WALKING WOLF
Based in Burlington, ON (just outside of Toronto). Unconventional, multi-talented five-piece phenomena. Vocal stylings mesh seamlessly with haunting harmonies. Soaring over epic melodic arrangements fused with prolific percussion work.
Seamlessly mixes roots, classic and modern rock with touches of Mushkegowuk Cree. Pushing musical boundaries and boldly taking new strides. Eight years, three albums, five Top 10 online radio singles, and 200 + media stories later.
Raised on the Peguis First Nation, MB and JUNO-winning singer-songwriter. Full of emotionally charged experiences that linger in memories. Influenced by Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and his preacher/musician father.
SKYLER WITH DANCERS CAMERON FRASER-MONROE AND ANGELA GLADUE
Ojibwe-German rapper from Sandy Bay, Manitoba. Over 100,000 views and four mixtapes, and at only 19 years old, has opened for Grammy nominee Fresh I.E. Debut album “Colourful” features many Canadian rappers in the game.
Soulful indie-pop duo/group based out of Vancouver, fronted by mixed Haida-Tsimshian siblings Gillian and Robert Thomson. Dreamy, eclectic and lyrically rich roots stem from the soul, blues and pop.
OH MY DARLING WITH KADANSE
Some of the hottest players on the Canadian roots scene! The right infusion of emotion and elation with their unique country sound. Prairie roots with bluegrass, Appalachian old-time, southern twang, and Franco-funk.
