- The Northern Arts and Cultural Centre (NACC) presents Music from the Edges of Canada, its first live concert series in months.
- The live concert series kicks off this Friday, December 10th, at 7:30 pm.
Music From Canada’s Edges is a national initiative that features 22 artists in 11 live and virtual concerts in four theatres across the country. Unlike the rest of Canada, the Yellowknife concert series will be recorded and aired in February and March 2022.
In October, Carmen Braden takes the stage first at the NACC theatre, having just released her new CD, Seed Songs. Braden’s music is expansive, with tunes and lyrics that feel familiar and familiar even though the music is unique. Carmen spoke with CKLB about her creative process during the pandemic.
Following Carmen on the bill for Friday night is Wesley Hardisty, a Dehcho fiddling prodigy. Hardisty is from Fort Simpson and has so far released two original albums. He has toured extensively throughout Canada and is a regular performer at venues throughout the north.
Andrea Bettger and Digawolf will perform on Saturday, December 11th, at 7:30 pm.
Andrea Bettger, a multi-talented performer, kicks off Saturday’s live performance. Andrea is active in the northern fiddling scene and has successfully incorporated her love of jazz, classical, and bluegrass styles into her musical performances.
Following Bettger, Tlicho musician Diga and his band Digawolf released eight studio albums in Tlicho and English. The band’s love of music from various genres is evident in their music. You won’t be disappointed with a lineup like these four fantastic musicians and their bands! Contact the NACC theatre for tickets to these performances.
