Event Description

Victoria Folk Music Society weekly gathering, Open Stage 7:30pm, Feature Performer Ed Peekeekoot at 9pm, 1110 Hillside Avenue, $8 cash at the door, Everyone welcome!

Performer Details: Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and storyteller, Ed Peekeekoot is a skilled and seasoned performer with a timeless kind of cool that appeals to audiences of all ages! Ed's performances go from blazing guitar work to foot stomping fiddle to haunting Native flute – all sprinkled with his Cree sense of humour and philosophy. He takes people on a wildly varied musical journey from country folk to a touch of classical and jazz.

From the Ahtahkakoop Cree First Nation in Saskatchewan where he grew up in a musical and supportive family, Ed now lives on Vancouver Island. He has been a solo musician for over four decades, appearing in concerts, festivals, school performances, corporate events, dances, and retreat gatherings across western Canada and into the US.

Ed has released 5 CDs and did many of the illustrations for a Cree history book that led him to explore the history of his people more deeply. He has been nominated twice as the BC Country Music Association's 'Instrumentalist of the Year' and his CD 'In the Key of Cree' was nominated as 'Best Country CD' in the Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards.

The VFMS is thrilled to welcome Ed back to our stage -- this is a show you definitely don’t want to miss!   https://www.peekeekoot.ca/
