The award-winning folk duo Twin Flames will bring their talent to the Regent Picton Theater on Saturday 24th June at 2pm to celebrate National Aboriginal Day.
Husband and wife duo Jaaji and Chelsey June, from Nunavik and Ottawa respectively, combine traditional Aboriginal storytelling and music with Western harmonies to entertain and educate family audiences. This co-production with Prince Edward County Public Library and Archives will be presented live to the public and broadcast live for those who cannot attend in person.
The event is supported by Provincial Museums, whose staff will run Aboriginal history tours for the PEC exhibit at Macaulay Heritage Park between 10am and 4pm.
“County Museums is pleased to partner with the Regent Theater to offer free admission to the Prince Edward County Indigenous History Gallery in Macaulay Heritage Park for Twin Flames concert ticket holders,” said Jessica Chase, Site/Museum Curator. “Community partnerships like these work in pursuit of reconciliation by ensuring that county residents have consistent opportunities to engage with the stories of the indigenous peoples of this region, past and present.” »
This concert marks the return of live entertainment for family audiences to the Regent Theatre.
“We are delighted to partner with the PEC Library and area museums to provide accessible, educational entertainment for audiences of all ages,” said Alexandra C., Executive Director of the Regent Theatre. “We are especially proud to offer programs that reflect and amplify the diversity of voices in our community.”
Twin Flames’ music includes a range of different styles and genres as the artists believe that music can help create a sense of unity and cooperation between different cultures. The duo perform original songs written in English, English and French about courage and survival that honor their ancestors and their cultural history.
Their award-winning music offers a unique blend of different musical styles and traditions. Twin Flames have released three full-length albums and have been nominated for 41 different music awards over the course of their seven years.
This ceremony will include an introduction shared by Grandma Cathy Brant, a Haudenosaunee (grandfather), a traditional teacher and educator, from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, which is directly adjacent to the county.
Brant said, “I believe it is an honor to impart the teachings of the Great Law of Peace and to teach how to achieve these concepts of philosophy, well-being, respect, and living in balance with all elements of creation.” The performing arts are a great way for people of all ages to learn about cultures and ideas. »
“Prince Edward County Public Library and Archives appreciates the opportunity to work with community partners, including our neighbor the Regent Theatre, to expand our offerings for families in our community. This show will provide a unique opportunity for young and old to experience transcendence,” said Barbara Sweet, executive director of the Prince Edward County Public Library and Archives.
