Jeremy Dutcher: 2019 Cramb Lecture and Concert
15 & 16 April 2019
We are thrilled to present Jeremy Dutcher, a classically-trained Canadian indigenous tenor, composer, musicologist, performer and activist, as the 2019 Cramb Resident in Music.
Dutcher is most noted for his album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, which won Canada’s 2018 Polaris Music Prize. He is also a leading activist for indigenous rights, and has provided indigenous outreach at Égale Canada, the country’s only national LGBT human rights organisation. Identifying as both indigenous and two-spirit, Jeremy has called for the indigenization of queer spaces, advocating – with reference to the lack of gendered pronouns in the Maliseet language – a ‘less western’ way of thinking about gender.
You are warmly invited to join us for two special events during his residency:
- The Cramb Lecture: 5.15pm, Monday 15 April
‘Indigenous Resurgence, Language Revitalization, and the Making of Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa’
- The Cramb Concert: 7pm, Tuesday 16 April
Featuring 60 minute set from Wolastoquyik Lintuwakonawa
Both events are free but ticketed. Please make sure to select the relevant event/ticket option when you click on REGISTER above.
These events are presented by the University of Glasgow's School of Culture & Creative Arts as part of its 2018/19 programme on the theme ‘Inclusive/Exclusive’.
