Les Après-Midis Gratuits #2

The second free showcase, this afternoon features a spotlight on indigenous artists, a big part of the Indigenous Sounds Series, which is proudly supported by Slaight Music and FACTOR.

15h30 Amanda Rheaume
16h10 Lacey Hill
17h00 William Prince Music
Amanda Rheaume is an award-winning Métis singer-songwriter with a powerful, slightly gritty, deeply personal, and instantly accessible roots-pop Americana sound. She delivers her unique and soulful blend of folk-country-pop twinged tracks internationally at major country and folk/roots festivals, theatres and clubs in Canada, Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, England, Scotland and Ireland.

Auteure-compositrice-interprète de musique chargée en émotions, Lacey Hill compose sa musique au cœur du territoire Six Nations de la réserve Grand River en Ontario. Elle a grandi sur la réserve – ou comme elle le dit « down the bush », où sa passion pour le chant est née alors qu’elle était toute petite.

JUNO Award-winner William Prince is singer-songwriter from Peguis First Nation who sidesteps clichés and creates emotionally-charged experiences that linger in memories. His rich baritone vocals and acoustic melodies offer warmth and hope so that we might forgive life’s shortcomings, as he relates them through his songs.
