Jeremy Dutcher: Songs of the Beautiful River
Lucas Waldin, conductor
Jeremy Dutcher, vocals
Vocalist, pianist, composer and musicologist Jeremy Dutcher exploded onto the Canadian music scene following his sensational debut album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa which won the Polaris Music Award in 2018. Based on century old traditional Indigenous melodies from the Wolastoqiyik Nation (“People of the Beautiful River”), the songs have been re-imagined and reinvigorated with elements of pop, rock and opera to create a dramatic and unique musical experience.
