Cheryl L’Hirondelle

Based In: Toronto, ON

According to many dictionaries the swallow (aka l’hirondelle) is a “migratory swift‐flying songbird.” This describes Cheryl L’Hirondelle accurately ‐ though for this award‐winning singer/songwriter and multi‐disciplinary artist the definition should end with “and so much more.”

She sings in both English and Cree and can one minute be heard crooning an intimate ballad and next loudly belting out a celebratory hand drum song. This Métiss songbird is friendly, animated and comfortable at any community event, festival stage or concert settng where she can be found sharing her original songs.
