I'm pleased to announce that the exhibition at The Aurora Cultural Centre has been EXTENDED TO TWO FULL MONTHS, starting October 4 through to November 27, 2011. Opening reception: October 12, 7-9PM.

We're thrilled to have Alicia play traditional Metis fiddle music at the opening reception on October 12. Alicia is one of the talented young aboriginal fiddlers in the Fiddle Stories Elder Youth Ensemble and performed at NAFCO in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Aberdeen, Scotland. She has been studying the fiddle for eleven years and has knowledge of the traditional Métis repertoires. Alicia has also performed at many Métis events across Ontario including Discovery Harbour Métis Festival, Welland Métis Rendez Vous, Oshawa Métis Festival, as well as working to revive traditional fiddling in the Ojibwa community of Garden River, Ontario.
