The Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority is privileged to present “Sisters of All Nations Singers” at the Tastes of Fall event on Sunday, October 4. They will be sharing their stories through songs inspired by traditional teachings and experiences at Longwoods Road Conservation Area.
The Sisters of All Nations Singers are a women’s drum group based out of London Ontario and Western University. The group formed after taking a Cayuga music class taught by Sadie Buck of Six Nations. After learning about Haudenosaunee music and culture, a group of ladies from the class decided to perform the songs they learned at Kings University College. Ever since that event the group has been together, singing, performing as well as learning. All of the singers in the group are students at Western and also from different nations and communities. It is because of the diversity of the group that the name Sisters of All Nations Singers came about. They have performed at many Western University events and throughout the community.
Also providing entertainment throughout the afternoon is folk rock duo Jerry and Chris, local favourites back by popular demand. This is a family friendly event with food sampling, wagon rides, local crafts and artisans. The event runs from Noon to 4:00 p.m. Longwoods Road Conservation Area is located at 8348 Longwoods Road, southwest of Mount Brydges, 6.5 km west of Delaware or 10 km east of Melbourne.
