Alexis Normand with Burnstick
Alexis Normand’s music in French and English has been recognized across Canada to critical acclaim. Drawing inspiration from the infinite horizons of her Saskatchewan home, she explores the dualities of a francophone identity on anglophone soil. Formerly of the internationally-touring trio, Rosie & the Riveters, Alexis now uses her velvety voice as the centerpiece of a candid approach to the contemporary folk world that suits her so well.
Burnstick’s folk music is brimming with the kind of chemistry that could only come from a husband and wife. Nadia, a Francophone-Métis singer-songwriter, and Jason, a Plains-Cree guitarist, blend their voices to push the boundaries of contemporary folk music as they weave together the unique sounds of Weissenborns with intriguing vocal harmonies. Their witty banter and delightful stories create magic as they command the stage with their telling performances.
