Brown Town Muddy Water

Saturday May 28, 2016 – 12:00PM – BMO Sports Lounge

Synopsis
‘Brown Town Muddy Water’ honours the ancient relationship between Indigenous people and the meeting place known as The Forks. This television special chronicles musicians who shaped Winnipeg’s main street in the 1960’s like the late Percy Tuesday, Errol Ranville and Billy Joe Green. For the emerging urban Aboriginal community, echoes of home sounded through music, dance, story and gatherings. Peoples lived experiences of emergence, segregation, racism, camaraderie and resistance are as resilient as the downtown streets of Winnipeg. The professional musicians that grew up on this notorious strip paved the road to success for forthcoming generations of Aboriginal artists. Join us as local music and memory reverberate throughout the decades!
