Kym Gouchie (Due to Covid-19 this will be a virtual show. The date to be decided. This show will be free to members who get or renew their 2021/22 memberships.)
With ancestral roots in the Lheidli T’enneh, Cree and Secwépemc Nations, Singer/Songwriter 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 who also performs as a duo, trio and full band. 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 often emotional impact on her audience.
A respected elder-in-training of the Lheidli T’enneh Nation, also known as Prince George, BC, Kym is also sought after to perform and speak at traditional welcoming ceremonies, cultural gatherings, schools, and conferences.
“Kym Gouchie is an artist who has the ability to momentarily
make us feel that time can stand still. Performing with a
combination of soulful expression, focused intent, integrity, and
artistic depth, Gouchie embraces and holds audiences while
imparting messages and truths in songs that need to be heard.
Kym Gouchie is a force... As artistic director of the Salmon Arm
Roots & Blues Festival I have witnessed Kym Gouchie mesmerize
an audience and inspire fellow artists. Kym is a truly unique artist
who seamlessly blends the contemporary with the traditional.”
~ Peter North, Artistic Director/Salmon Arm Roots & Blues
