World Music Series: Fiddling with an Indigenous Dialect with Métis Fiddler Jamie Fox

Wednesday, October 9 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

As part of the UCSB World Music Series, Métis fiddler Jamie Fox will perform on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at 12 pm at the UCSB Music Bowl. Jamie is a Métis fiddler of the Aaniih and Nakoda tribes of Montana. The Métis are members of ethnic groups native to Canada and parts of the United States that trace their descent to both Indigenous North Americans and European settlers. Jamie grew up on the Fort Belknap Reservation of Northern Montana where she was immersed in a lively fiddle and dance tradition. She will perform selections from the tunes played there, derived from a mixture of Celtic, French, and Native American cultures, and some other “popular” Métis tunes that are played throughout Native country.

Admission is free.
