Métis Youth Wellness Connection: “Let’s Chat About Fiddling and Jigging”

Come join in on our Métis kitchen party to learn, move, and have some fun! The Métis of Canada are guardians of a music and dance style that developed in the early days of contact between European and First Nations people. This session will feature award winning fiddler, Alicia Blore, who will share her expertise on the fiddle, and other traditional instruments. Alicia Blore will be accompanied by Megan Southwell, who will show us her fancy steps in a jigging tutorial.
