Jeremy DutcherTHE MOTEWOLONUWOK ᒣᑏᐧᐁᓓᓄᐧᐁᒃ TOUR
with U.S. Girls
Massey Hall presents
Five years after rising to international acclaim with his seminal, award-winning album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, Jeremy Dutcher returns to the stage with a new band and pivotal new music. On the Motewolonuwok tour, Dutcher invites audiences to be transformed by music that is more personal and intimate than ever, yet pushes the boundaries of his unique sonic landscape.
This next sonic journey is rooted in an ancestor quote:
Tan qiniw iyuwok wasis kpomawsuwinuwok, 'tankeyutomon-oc kihtahkomikomon.
As long as there is a child among our people, we will protect the land.
Jeremy Dutcher is a Two-Spirit song carrier, composer, activist, and ethnomusicologist from Tobique First Nation in Eastern Canada. Dutcher’s 2018 debut — Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa — vaulted him into the upper echelons of Canadian performance, from the Polaris Music Prize and JUNO Award stages to the judges’ panel on Canada’s Drag Race. It led to collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Buffy St. Marie, and Beverly Glenn Copeland, and an NPR Tiny Desk performance.
This event will be filmed and recorded for later broadcast on CBC.
