A new song by Brian Tate, Make Us Free, is the inspiration for our upcoming performance. With all the strife and heartache in today’s world, we need songs like this one that urge us to “shake off the chains that bind us, break down the walls that divide us, bring out the love inside us, and make us free.”

You will be treated to our usual blend of gospel, spiritual, pop, civil rights, African and Afro-Cuban songs, and for the first time, we will be performing a First Nations song written by multi-award winning composer Sandy Scofield, a Métis from the Saulteaux and Cree Nations. We were especially appreciative that Sandy took time out of her busy schedule to come to the island to teach us her song as well as some of the traditions of First Nations music.
