The second 100th Meridian Concert event will take place in the heart of downtown Brandon.

The free event, set for Thursday, will feature Winnipeg-based Métis singer-songwriter Sonia Eidse and Manitoba-born Cree/Métis singer and recent Juno nominee, Iskwé.

The city has partnered with the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba to present the event, which will also serve as the launch for the AGSM’s next billboard unveiling of Indigenous art. The concert will take place at the corner of Seventh Street and Rosser Avenue.

“Working with community groups to bring musical performances into the heart of the community is one of the main goals of the City of Brandon 100th Meridian Concerts program, so partnering with the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba to add an Indigenous music element to its next artist billboard launch was a very natural fit,” said Richard Greer, community development co-ordinator. “We’re very excited to feature two such talented female Indigenous musical acts, Sonia Eidse and Iskwé, against the backdrop of another display of compelling Indigenous art.”
