Special guest

This year’s special guest is Andrea Menard, a powerhouse Metis performer who bridges cultural and language boundaries by speaking from her heart. Her voice is lyrical, raw, and reminiscent of the jazz and blues singers of the 1940’s, yet captures the depth, humour, and wisdom of her ancestors. Andrea has recorded four critically acclaimed albums, Lift, Sparkle, Simple Steps, and The Velvet Devil, and written and starred in two made-for-television programs: The Velvet Devil, which was adapted from her hit one-woman musical stage play; and Sparkle, which aired on APTN for six consecutive holiday seasons.One of the all-star cast of the soon-to-be-released CTV series, Sullivan’s Crossing, Andrea is a five-time Gemini-nominated actress, a 15-time music award winner, and she was named ACTRA National’s Woman of the Year in 2021.
