Join Kate and the Canoe Museum on Thursday April 30th at 8pm. The concert will take place on the Grande Portage in the galleries. Food and cash bar on site.
A bit about Kate:
Eleven years ago, Kate Weekes stood on the Trans-Canada Highway. She stuck out her thumb and headed north to Whitehorse in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Soon, deeply embedded in the Yukon’s music scene, Kate moved into a little orange cabin on Squatter’s Row and became a dog musher. The fall of 2014 saw Kate release her second solo album “Frost on Black Fur”. The album features original songs that weave tales of dog mushing and paddling on remote rivers in the Yukon’s Peel Watershed. Kate’s stories send the listeners as far away as Ireland and China, where she has performed twice at the Nanjing Jazz and World Music Festival. Her music is folk-based and original with hints of swing and driven by bold guitar playing.
Tickets: $15. Tickets can be purchased online, in person at the Canoe Museum or over the phone 705.748.9153
