National Indigenous People’s Day Celebration!
Join Under the Spire Music Festival and Lennox Island First Nations as we celebrate National Indigenous People’s Day with Strawberries & Bannock, a smudge ceremony led by Lennox Island First Nations, and a free concert featuring Silver Wolf Band!
Silver Wolf Band is a four-piece Indigenous folk pop rock band from Happy Valley Goose Bay, Labrador. Lively, engaging and self-assured performances of honest and sincere lyrical music is what has made Silver Wolf Band one of the most in-demand music groups from Labrador. Their music is shaped and informed by family, community, love, and their home land itself. Their first full length album Pockets Filled With Rocks saw them nominated for Rock Artist of the Year (Music NL, 2018) and First Light Indigenous Artist/Group of the Year (Music NL, 2019). Their most recent album Storms & Prayers (2020) saw them nominated for Group of the Year (Music NL, 2020) and won them Indigenous Artist of the Year (Music NL, 2020) and Indigenous Artist of the Year (ECMA 2021). Silver Wolf Band is Jamie Jackman (guitar, vocals), Matthew Barrett (piano, keyboards), Justin Jackman (drums, percussion), and Brandon Pardy (bass guitar). The band is coming off a successful tour of the Province in support of Storms & Prayers which included 4 sold-out shows in Corner Brook, St. John’s, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, and Wesleyville.
We are grateful for support from Canadian Heritage for this day of celebration and activities, and acknowledge the festival occupies the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq and L’nu in beautiful Kataganek Epekwitk.
