Description:

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Kym Gouchie for two live shows.

With the audience seated cabaret-style right on the Performing Arts Centre’s main stage, our SPOTLIGHT OnSTAGE Concert Series allows for audiences to relax and enjoy a socially distanced concert in this popular and more intimate performance format.

In keeping with COVID-19 regulations and restrictions, tables will be sold as a 2, 4 or 6 seat unit, placed safely 2m apart.

With ancestral roots in the Lheidli T’enneh, Cree and Secwépemc Nations, KYM GOUCHIE is fostering change through her music and art. Her music brings awareness to First Nations and women’s issues, promoting reconciliation and community building while reminding us that we are all in this together. Her stories are a testament to the human spirit, weaving together threads of her own journey from personal tragedy to triumph. Kym’s traditional hand drum, clean, crisp acoustic guitar and full-bodied voice make her a powerful solo artist. She also performs as a duo, trio and full band, adding in vocal harmonies, keyboard, electric guitar, mandolin, banjo and cello by talented accompanists. Traditional First Nations, folk, and country tones alongside poignant and inspirational lyrics capture the hearts of young and old — her genuine and heartfelt performances have a profound and sometimes emotional impact on their audience.

A respected elder-in-training of the Lheidli T’enneh Nation, also known as Prince George, BC, Kym is sought after to perform and speak at traditional welcoming ceremonies, cultural gatherings, schools, and conferences.
