First Nations Juno winners, nominees showcased
The band fronted by Jay Bodner says its foundation is "good old Canadian rock music," but its competition for a Juno Award on Sunday ranges from hip hop to roots music.
They shared the stage Thursday with last year's Juno winners Digging Roots, Dene singer-songwriter Leela Gilday, folk singer-songwriter Christa Couture and classically trained cello player Cris Derksen, who is half-Cree.
