Jeremy Dutcher

Synopsis

The Arts & Culture Centre is proud to present Jeremy Dutcher in November 2019 as part of the #ACCPresents series. This tour is in partnership with First Light, and in St. John’s the performance will take place as part of the 2019 Spirit Song Festival.

Jeremy Dutcher is a classically trained operatic tenor and composer who takes every opportunity to blend his Wolastoq First Nation roots into the music he creates, blending distinct musical aesthetics that shape-shift between classical, traditional, and pop to form something entirely new. Dutcher’s debut release, Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa (2018 Polaris Music Prize winner), involves the rearrangement of early 1900s wax cylinder field recordings from his community.

“Many of the songs were lost because our musical tradition was suppressed by the Canadian government. I'm doing this work as there's only about a hundred Wolastoqey speakers left. It's crucial that we're using our language because, if you lose the language, you're losing an entire distinct way of experiencing the world.”

"This is really one of the best things we’ve ever heard on the history of the show." -Tom Power on CBC Q

"The future meets the past as Dutcher’s resonant operatic voice is paired with a recording made over 110 years ago of a speech. Layered with crystalline strings and booming horns, the result sounds grandiose yet intimate." - NOISEY
