Nominated in both Best Female Artist and Best Folk Acoustic Album at this years Aboriginal Music Awards, I came home with an impressive shiny award for the latter.
“Couture impressed with her solo acoustic guitar performance” wrote ChartAttack, but I was backed by the most fabulous house band (thank you Raven et all!) which included Cris Derksen. Who is amazing. And cree also : ) She accompanied, solo, the mind-blowing Tanya Tagaq, who I watched, amazed, from the wings. I’m going to steal Cris for my next gig in February at the Chan Centre…
I must correct the intro I received though – though I was given an Arapaho name as a child, I am not, in fact, Arapaho. I’m part Cree! A small detail, but one to be clarified : )
The awards were divided into two nights – the first of which is where/when I received the Best Folk Album award. The second night, at which I performed, will be televised in the new year on CityTV. I will surely let you all know of the time and date as soon as I myself am aware!
