For The People: Kym Gouchie, Marcel Gagnon, and Saltwater Hank Live at the Prince George Playhouse
Friday March 16, 2018  |  7:30 PM
Prince George Playhouse, 2833 Recreation Place

Kym Gouchie and Northern Sky will be performing at the Prince George Playhouse on March 16th, 2018. In coordination with Mad Loon Entertainment, 6ix Sigma Productions, and Russell A/V, this performance will be filmed and made into a live concert documentary film featuring 30-45 minutes of original music and exclusive interview content. Intended to be recorded in the same style as the legendary Live at Massey Hall series of recordings, this concert film will be a one of a kind project, not yet completed by any artist in Prince George.

Kym Gouchie’s band, Northern Sky, is comprised of Naomi Kavka, Danny Bell, Jeremy Pahl, Amy Blanding, and Corbin Spensley. This all-star lineup has been developing a sound with Kym that is both large and graceful. Five-part harmonies, strings, and thumping drums provide a beautiful soundscape behind Kym’s powerful voice and message.

The concert will also have the musical support of Juno-nominated recording artist Marcel Gagnon and esteemed local folk artist Saltwater Hank, rounding out the evening to include a full three sets of incredible music. A celebration of three local indigenous artists with nation-wide reach, this event is sure to bring the community together for an evening that won't soon be forgotten.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
