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!
