Celeigh Cardinal is a prairie girl through and through. Her heartfelt, biographical songs are carried by a voice that harkens to the golden era of jazz and blues. This Métis singer/songwriter is easily one of the finest vocalists to hail from the Peace Country. In May of 2017, Celeigh was the recipient of a “REVEAL Indigenous Arts Award” from the Hnatyshyn Foundation in Manitoba. In 2016, she received an “ATB Listens” grant from ATB Financial and participated in the (Re)Claim program at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Celeigh has received a Youth Role Model Award from the Spirit Seekers Conference in Grande Prairie, and was appointed the Cultural Ambassador for the 2010 Arctic Winter Games. Celeigh has performed across Canada, the United States, and internationally, including the Live at Heart Showcase in Orebro, Sweden. This spring, Celeigh is travelling throughout North America writing with some of the industry’s most respected writers and producers. She is the first Indigenous radio personality on Alberta’s own CKUA, and she’s the first Indigenous member of Edmonton’s Arts Column, the In Crowd. Celeigh resides in Edmonton, Alberta and performs with her trio and band. She is a passionate performer who can draw an emotional response with her deliberate words and rich contralto voice and continues to perform alongside her duo, trio and with her band.
This event is in partnership by the Banff Centre and the Canmore Folk Music Festival.
