Imagine the squeal and squeak of wooden wheels turning on wooden axles. Louis Riel’s Manitoba was filled with the sound of Red River carts, fiddles and voices. Join Camerata Nova and violinist/fiddler Claudine St-Arnauld in a celebration of poetry, music and wood-on-wood technology of the 1870s featuring the songs of Métis bard Pierre Falcon with tales of the buffalo hunt and the Battle of Seven Oaks. Camerata Nova has also commissioned a new work by Manitoba Métis composer Eliot Britton. Well known for his innovative soundscapes, Eliot is sure to bring new colours to our celebration of all things Métis! Plus, a surprise guest is in the works…
