The Queer Arts Festival, in partnership with Full Circle – First Nations Performance Society and the Canadian Music Centre in BC, are pleased to present a free workshop for youth, How Many Ways Can You Sing a Song? on Tuesday, June 26, 4pm, at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre. This session will be led by Jeremy Dutcher, a composer and vocal artist of the Wolastoq nation. Jeremy Dutcher’s music merges aesthetics and influences from traditional, classical and contemporary sound worlds, and his breakout album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa explores his sonic heritage. Come and engage in an intimate, interactive sounds workshop that explores contemporary Indigenous sonic practice. Please click here for further information.

On Wednesday, June 27, as part of the Queer Arts Festival, Jeremy Dutcher performs traditional songs of his Wolastoqiyik ancestors, in duet with recordings that he rediscovered, transcribed from century-old archival wax cylinder recordings, and arranged for voice, electronics and piano.
