Amanda Rheaume in Concert
There were many ways to celebrate National Indigenous People’s Day throughout Simcoe-Grey. In Collingwood, the day brought with it an evening, free, outdoor concert featuring Juno nominee Amanda Rheaume, at the Shipyards Amphitheatre.
Born and raised in Ottawa, Rheaume is a Citizen of the Métis Nation of Ontario with Objiwe/Anishinaabe ancestors from Lac Seul, Ontario. She is the granddaughter of Eugène Rhéaume, one of Canada’s first Métis Members of Parliament. Her music is indeed from the heart, and the land, and was enjoyed by everyone in attendance on a warm summer night at Collingwood’s waterfront.
Rheaume has released 5 full-length albums over a period of 15 years. Her release in 2013, Keep a Fire, was nominated for a JUNO Award and won a Canadian Folk Music Award for Indigenous Songwriter of the Year.
