A Tribe Called Red Adds Free Shows on First Nations Reserves to Summer Tour

A Tribe Called Red‘s already packed summer festival tour will now be making a few stops at the rez.

The group announced today a handful of free appearances at various First Nations this summer. The stops will also include youth-oriented workshops.

“The goal is to present top quality shows directly on reserve, by partnering with communities and bringing a mobile stage and lighting on site,” says the press release and we’re stoked to hear they’re bringing the music into the community, an initiative that’s being presented with help from the Ontario Arts Council.
