In this episode, Bryna Link (Peguis First Nation) and Hannah Connelly talk to Metis fiddler, and Manitoba local, Melissa St. Goddard. They discuss Melissa's experience growing up within the Metis fiddling community, her performance and teaching career, as well as the challenges and joys of bringing Metis fiddle music into a more formal opera setting with Li Keur, Riel's Heart of the North.
The music used in this podcast comes directly from the Li Keur, Riel's Heart of the North dramatic musical. In this episode, we also feature fiddler Alex Kusturok for our intro music, playing the Red River Jig. You can visit his website for more: https://alexkusturok.com/bio
