Celeigh Cardinal

Regular $39 | Big Ticket $33 | $29 Big Ticket Plus

Discovery is the beauty of music. It reveals itself in layers. Such is the evolution of 2020 JUNO Award winner, Celeigh Cardinal. Following a time-tested path from singing in church to performing in cover bands to writing original material, Cardinal has reinvented herself with each new chapter in her career. With a confident voice and boundless energy, Cardinal owns a stage, connecting deeply with her audience through humour, passion and love. Whether sweetly strumming an acoustic guitar or leading her band in a rocking rave-up, she commands our attention. Her singing is rich and deep with a burnished maturity and a nimble technical virtuosity that wraps itself around notes with a purr, a snarl or something in the middle. With two full-length albums completed, and a future release in the planning stages, Cardinal is poised to expand her profile which already includes awards from the 2020 Juno Awards, the 2018 Western Canadian Music Awards, multiple Edmonton Music Awards, and recently she received two nominations for the 2020 Western Canadian Music Awards for Indigenous Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.
