FOLK ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL; MONTREAL, QUEBEC
Hosted on the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka of Kahnawà:ke

Heading to the beautiful city of Montreal this upcoming week and I couldn’t be more excited! This will be my first time at FAI and I’ll be pulling double duty as an artist and in my role as the Coordinator for the Indigenous Music Development Program.

As an artist I’ll be meeting and networking with national and international delegates and artists and focusing on expanding my western connections. I’ll also be showcasing (yay!)

Many of you who know me personally know how much I value sleep and how I often go to bed way too early for a 24 year old, hah! Sooo that said I’m so thankful that all of my shows some how ended up being fairly early in the night!

As a delegate I’ll be hosting the #IndigenousVoicesSummit room on Thursday and Friday night, and attending the inaugural International Indigenous Music Summit. I’m excited to connect with all sorts of different folks as the coordinator of IMDP and think some incredible relationships will be started next week.
