Sierra Noble, another great Canadian music talent

I made it to the Paul McCartney concert in Halifax yesterday. Sir Paul’s show was impressive, and a great experience, but a surprise was the last minute addition of Sierra Noble from Winnipeg. This 19-year old M├ętis fiddler wowed the crowd with both her fiddling and her songs. Reminded me of another Manitoba musical talent, Eagle and Hawk.

BTW, not bad for a 19-year old to be asked on a Monday if she wants to open up for Sir Paul on the weekend, in front of about 20,000 people!

Eagle and Hawk

I recently was fortunate enough to see a performance by Winnipeg’s Eagle and Hawk. They blew us all away – amazing blend of modern rock and traditional First Nations sounds. Another great Canadian gem!

Inspiring Icelandic music

This music video reminded me very much of this year’s Newfoundland and Labrador tourism ads. Since I love Newfoundland, I know I will love Iceland…
