WOMEN IN THE ROUND for 11th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2014 in Vancouver on Nov 1 2014
WOMEN IN THE ROUND Indigenous Women’s Voices
Saturday November 1, 7:30pm
InterUrban Gallery, 1 E. Hastings
Women In The Round is a rare and incredible opportunity to celebrate the voices of indigenous women who have travelled the world sharing their lives and stories through their songs. The evening presents Juno award-winning vocalist, actor, director and general powerhouse Renae Morriseau; musicologist, technique expert, teacher and vocalist Sandy Scofield; rising star with loads of talent Niska Napoleon; and Downtown Eastside’s own Dalannah Gail Bowen, a veteran of the Vancouver music scene and recent winner of the right to represent BC at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Accompanied on keyboard by Simon Kendall. Filled with variety and commonalities, the evening promises the sound of rich voices and magical moments.
This event was on Day 4 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!
