Back to Her Roots
Mimi O’Bonsawin an award winning roots songstress who we were so delighted to add to the Headwaters stage again this year. She loves nature as much as we do! Her songs are heavily influenced by her French Canadian and Abenaki roots and flow through a centre of love and creativity. Her compositions are nurtured by the beauty of her home landscape, and her performances are honest and raw. If you can embrace the grace and power of our Ontario landscapes, you will feel the music of Mimi.
Mimi’s career has been blossoming. She has received various awards and nominations like Best Pop Record at the Indigenous Music Awards (2019) & Nominated for Best EP at the TRILLE OR Awards (2021). Her release ELLE DANSE is a self-produced french EP that has been gaining momentum with placements on Spotify, Amazon and Apple Music curated playlists. ELLE DANSE was in ELMNT FM’s top 10 Best Albums of 2020 and it was recently nominated for two prizes at the TRILLE OR Awards. Check out her latest album FIDDLEHEADS & FERNS – an instrumental album
Joined on the stage by her partner, co-creater and beat maker Ryan Schurman. Together Mimi & Ryan will bring us on a journey of heartfelt stories and rhythms that will make you dance, as will special guest Amber Hein, a Jingle Dress Dancer who will light up the show.
