Music at MERA – Twin Flames

SOLD OUT-Twin Flames

Sunday September 19, 2:00pm

This multi-award-winning husband and wife duo is made up of Chelsey June and Jaaji, both of Indigenous backgrounds. Jaaji is Inuk and Mohawk from Nunavik and Chelsey June métis (Algonquin Cree) from Ottawa. Twin Flames push the boundaries of “Contemporary Folk” with songs that incorporate both Western and traditional instruments. Despite polar opposite backgrounds Twin Flames found a common musical language. Honouring their ancestors, they sing songs in English, Inuttitut and French. Consecutive year winners 2016 and 2017 of The Canadian Folk Music Award; Aboriginal Songwriters of the year, three time Native Music Award winners and most recently three time winners for the Inaugural Summer Solstice Indigenous Music Awards.

Since we first contacted Twin Flames in the spring of 2020, they have continued to expand their catalogue and their audience. We are thrilled to be able to finally bring them to the MERA Schoolhouse.

Unfortunately, we can only accommodate 25 ticket holders for this performance.  While they last, tickets are available online through Tickets Please. The cost is $25 plus service fee.

Stay tuned, as we have several irons in the fire for more Music at MERA this fall.
