Building Bridges: Paths to Reconciliation

With a continuing interest in the power of music to build community, and the value of music education for young people, Playing for Change Saskatchewan presents an engaging evening of music, dance and stories to explore perspectives and shared experiences between Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures in Saskatchewan.

Organizers hope the evening will acknowledge the need to speak truth about the long-standing challenges facing many of Canada’s Indigenous communities and their allies before our country can hope for any real reconciliation.

PFC veteran Erroll Kinistino, from Ochapowace First Nation, hosts an eclectic mix of new and traditional sounds, featuring young musicians sharing the stage with seasoned veterans.

Singer/songwriter Shannon Rae McNabb , from Pepeekesis, performs a mix of roots rock, classic and contemporary country. Joelle Fuller takes a break from work on a new album to perform, joined by her guitar students from the North Central Kids Music program.

Kristy and Roberto (Buzzroc) Apodaca with the Seven Stones drum group create a sense of community with steady beats and rhythms. Indigenous roots/rock/blues songwriter Dale Mac will shake the tent with songs from his new EP American Horse.

To top things off, Regina’s irrepressible belly-dancing troupe Yalla Habibi Dancers will improvise dance moves with some of the evening’s performers.

Concert organizers want to make this a collaborative and respectful event, in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s call for action where possible. The goal is to use music and stories for community-building and explore some creative, intercultural ways to build bridges. 

Detailed Performance times: (will be announced soon)
