Canadian First Nations musician and activist at the University of Glasgow, 15-16 April
The University of Glasgow is delighted to present Jeremy Dutcher – indigenous Canadian singer, composer and activist – as the 2019 Cramb Resident in Music.
Dutcher is most noted for his album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, which won Canada’s 2018 Polaris Music Prize. He is a leading activist for indigenous rights, and has provided indigenous outreach at Égale Canada, the country’s only national LGBTQ+ human rights organisation. Identifying as both indigenous and two-spirit, Jeremy has called for the indigenization of queer spaces, advocating – with reference to the lack of gendered pronouns in the Maliseet language – a ‘less western’ way of thinking about gender.
Please join us for two special public events during his residency, both held at the University of Glasgow’s Concert Hall:
The Cramb Lecture | 17:15 – 18:30, Monday 15 April
‘Indigenous Resurgence, Language Revitalization, and the Making of Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa’
Lecture followed by drinks reception
The Cramb Concert | 19:00 – 20:00, Tuesday 16 April
featuring selections from the award-winning Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa
co-presented with Music in the University
Both events are free but ticketed and available through https://jeremy-dutcher-2019-cramb.eventbrite.co.uk
