Friday Night Live! Music by Jeremy Dutcher

From the event description:

Performer, composer, musicologist and activist Jeremy Dutcher is at the forefront of what some are calling Canada's Indigenous Renaissance. A classically-trained operatic tenor and composer who takes every opportunity to merge his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates, Dutcher blends distinct musical aesthetics that shift between classical, traditional and pop to form something entirely new. A member of Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick, Dutcher worked in the archives at the Canadian Museum of History, painstakingly transcribing Wolastoq songs from 1907 wax cylinders. Dutcher heard ancestral voices singing forgotten songs and stories that had been taken from the Wolastoqiyik generations ago. As he listened to each recording, he felt his own musical impulses stirring from deep within.

When: Friday, Oct. 11, 8-10 p.m.
Where: Detroit Institute of Arts, 5200 Woodward Ave.
Admission: Free
