The Town of Huntsville is excited to announce a free public event in River Mill Park, on National Indigenous Peoples Day June 21, 2019 — the longest day of the year — and the start of summer in Muskoka.

With funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Juno award-winning Digging Roots — Raven Kanatakta and ShoShona Kish and their band — will mix a wide range of musical styles from folk, rock, blues and even hip hop, to create unique and powerful sounds. Digging Roots won the Canadian Aboriginal Award for best group in 2007, and more recently, ShoShona won the Spirit of Folk Award at the International Folk Music Awards. In April 2019, ShoShona Kish became the first artist in Canada to receive the prestigious WOMEX Professional Excellence Award. Digging Roots continue to share their culture and their talent to the delight of audiences all around the globe.

The free concert is suitable for all ages, and everyone is welcome. John Rice, Zahgausgai/Mukwa, 3rd Degree Midewiwin will act as the Master of Ceremonies. Wasauksing’s Little Spirit Singers led by Deina Bomberry will perform at 6:30 pm, with Digging Roots on stage from 7 to 8 pm. River Mill Park is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Huntsville, on Dara Howell Way.
