Sierra Noble performing at the 90th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge

Posted on

 Accomplished fiddler, Sierra Noble will be traveling to France next month to perform at the 90th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Noble, who specializes in traditional Metis fiddle, will perform the Metis Prayer/Warriors Lament at the monument as a part of the historic ceremony on April 9.

The Veterans Affairs Canada website explains that the victory at Vimy demonstrated the passion and skill of the Canadian Corps and created a momentum that carried the troops through the following three months of Allied victories before the end of World War I. The victory at Vimy Ridge is cited on the website as the main reason why Canada earned a separate signature on the Treaty of Versailles.

A number of events are planned to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, including the dedication of the newly restored Canadian National Vimy Memorial in Vimy, France.

Along with her performance at the ceremony, Noble is also scheduled to perform for the Prime Minister and other dignitaries at an Easter dinner while she’s overseas.
