Everyone Can Sing: Workshop in Summerland, Sept. 2, 2016

Everyone Can Sing

The inaugural Marginal Arts Festival, inspired by George Ryga, is taking place in beautiful Summerland, BC, September 1 to 4. I hope you can join us!
George was the gifted playwright who gave the world THE ECSTASY OF RITA JOE. His seminal play opened peoples’ eyes to the reality that Canada’s First Nations faced in Canadian society. Performing in the world premiere of ‘RITA JOE’, and co-writing the music with Willie Dunn, took my social awareness and my singing and to a deeper level. I am honoured to be presenting a singing workshop at this very special event.
