About this Event

Kiinniksiikaiks Saamoopaipiitaa. Kiitoowahsiinoon Anok’iitsiipahtapiiyopaa

We acknowledge that this event is taking place on the traditional lands of the nations of Treaty 7

The fast rising northern stars, The Jerry Cans, create music inspired by their hometown of Iqaluit, Nunavut. With their unique mix of Inuktitut alt-country, throat singing, and reggae, the Jerry Cans are a distinctly northern, one-of-a-kind group. The band perform many of their songs in Inuktitut and are passionate about preserving the language even as the north and their home community of Iqaluit evolve. They are committed to representing northerners and to challenging common misperceptions they have encountered about life in the Arctic; their music evokes the contemporary north and the spirited people that reside there. It is not only the political motives, but their rapidly developing reputation for getting elders and young people dancing, that has forced people to start noticing this high-energy group. This truly unique band will take you on a stroll through the streets of Iqaluit to share a glimpse of life in Arctic. Andrew Morrison (Vocals/Guitar) Nancy Mike (Accordion/Throat Singing) Gina Burgess (Violin) Brendan Doherty (Bass) Steve Rigby (Drums)
