Jay Gilday in the LDSS MPR

The second performance in the Lakes District Arts Council’s 14th season takes place on Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at Lakes District Secondary School. Jay Gilday threads together strands of his ancestral traditions: Dene spirituals, Irish ballads, and Canadian folk and rock. He was raised in a family of accomplished musicians on the tundra of Yellowknife, where music electrified never-ending days and nights. His second album, Faster than Light (2016) earned Gilday Indigenous Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards. He is based in Edmonton, where fans have learned what the rest of the country is about to find out: Jay Gilday owns one of the most important voices in Canadian music today.

Tickets are now on sale for the Jay Gilday performance at Process 4 Gallery, LDFC Printing and Stationery and the Lakes Artisan Centre. Look for our ads in Lakes District News.
