Sleat, Isle of Skye
The storytelling/fiddling performance of a journey from present to past, through the cultures, Native and Euro-Canadian, that permeate and intertwine on the Canadian prairies. Through one woman’s eyes, it is the story of a music and of the people who created it, and who, against all odds, continue to play it. The music is like no other, embodying aspects of Ojibwa, Cree, Scottish, French, English, American and eastern European traditions, a uniquely Canadian music played on a small box with four strings.
Manitoba-born Anne Lederman is a fiddler, singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, researcher, teacher and ‘national treasure’.
She is joined by actor and musician Capucie Onn, playing the young Anne.
“Vivid, layered, intimate and, at points, mystical. . .The musicians she meets and the complexity and pathos of their experiences as individuals and as First Nations people are beautifully brought to life. The two actors navigate time, space, clashes of identity, culture and musical tradition into one skillfully woven performance.” Allison Jones, The View
