Event Archive - Kinnie Starr, Leela Gilday

Kinnie Starr is one of Canada’s most adored and critically acclaimed underground musicians of our time. Widely known as an artist with an original, authentic voice, Kinnie relies on “raw feral talent” (Globe and Mail), solid groove, and a love for wordplay whether performing sensual and literate hip-hop, heartfelt guitar songs or spoken word. The New Yorker describes this proud mixed blood Mohawk as “edgy and enchanting”.

Performing with her band, the passionate and soulful singer/songwriter, Leela Gilday confesses stories to the audience with an open stage presence and gutsy voice that comes straight from her heart. She weaves her experiences as a northerner, a member of the Dene nation, and a traveler into a beautiful world that transports the listener.
