Artists from the worlds of music, theatre, dance and visual and media arts will gather for the National Arts Centre’s Canada Scene festivals – as a complement to Canada 150 commemorations.

The NAC has unveiled its full programming lineup for Canada Scene – taking place in Ottawa and Gatineau, Quebec – and featuring more than 1,000 artists in 100 events – from June 15th to July 23rd.

Cape Breton Celtic fiddler Natalie MacMaster is among the musical performers – as well as Acadian singer-songwriter Edith Butler and Quebec singer-songwriters Ariane Moffatt and Yves Lambert.

Polaris Prize winner Tanya Tagaq will be among a collective of female indigenous artists performing during “Anishinabekwe” on July 22nd – along with Canadian Folk Music Award winner Amanda Rheaume and award-winning Metis musician Sandy Scofield – and ShoShona Kish of Juno-winning Digging Roots.

Winnipeg’s Camerata Nova choir has also commissioned a trio of indigenous artists to create works on the theme of being “taken,” – which will be showcased June 17th.
