All members of the Cannery are invited to our Members’ Preview on Thursday, April 30. Beginning at 5:30 pm, the evening will feature the opening of the 2009 exhibit What’s Afloat, the launch of the accompanying book, and the opening of Salmon Return. Musical group M’girl will also perform.
M’girl (pronounced Mu girl) is an award winning Aboriginal female vocal assemblage with an inspired infusion of harmonies. They incorporate the sounds of R&B, Blues, Folk/Roots, House, and World Beat, with traditional Aboriginal melodic phrasing song forms and rhythms. The message in the music is an emergence of cultural ideas and worldviews from the perspectives of their Métis/Cree, Anishinabe, Mohawk and Ojibway Nations. For this evening’s performance M’girl is Tiare LaPorte, Jennifer Brousseau, and Tracy Weitzel.
