IV. SEPTEMBER 24, 7-9 pm Craig Ginn
Craig Ginn, academic and musician, has recently released a 10-song album, Songs of Justice (2021). The lyrics inform current and historical relations between Canada and its Indigenous peoples, also drawing attention to the political and spiritual significance of Louis Riel. As a research fellow with Evolve to Innovate (e2i) Craig is currently writing music for the Animal Kinship Project. Informed by Indigenous understandings of relationality and his own observations and experiences, the songs will portray the presence and impact of animals, including songs about the polar bear, the wolf, the eagle, and the raven. Two songs address the historical slaughters of animals, the plains bison in the late-19th century and Inuit sled dogs from 1950-1975. Craig’s performance at the Martha Retreat Centre will feature songs from both projects.
Tickets for $20 each or purchase the series of 4 for $70.00
