Coastal First Nations Dance Festival : February 28 - March 5, 2017

  • Museum of Anthropology 6393 Northwest Marine Drive Vancouver, BC, V6T 1Z1 Canada (map)

Special Opening Performance with Bill Henderson and Claire Lawrence. 

Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson will perform songs from her upcoming album (to be released this summer), and will be joined by Canadian music icons Bill Henderson and Claire Lawrence. This album contains music in the endangered Haida language and will be accompanied by blues, jazz and rock instrumentation.

She will also be performing with the Rainbow Creek Dancers. The Festival is a celebration of the stories, songs and dances of the Indigenous peoples of the northwest coast of North America. The festival presents the rich cultural traditions practiced by dance groups from British Columbia, the Yukon, Alaska and Washington State as well as guest international artists and demonstrates that these traditions are very much alive, vibrant and relevant today.
