BATTLEFORDS - Award-winning Métis country music artist, Donny Parenteau, will be taking the stage in the Battlefords on Feb. 23 at the Dekker Centre.
According to the Dekker Center's website, Parenteau was born and raised in Prince Albert.
With musical roots going back generations to his grandfather, who was a talented fiddle player and supported his family through musical performances, at the age of 14, Parenteau picked up the fiddle himself and began his journey as a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter.
Parenteau's Métis heritage, tracing back to Louis Riel and the Northwest Rebellion of 1885, is a significant part of his music and identity.
Today, he is one of the highest-nominated independent acts in Canada.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 23, with tickets available now at the Dekker Centre box office, over the phone, or in person.
