Friday Night Concert: Diyet & The Love Soldiers
Friday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m.–8:45 p.m.
Diyet spent her childhood on the ancestral lands of the Kluane First Nation people in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Coming from a family rooted in traditions but tempered with a good sense of adventurous hippie attitudes, Diyet has created a musical presence as diverse as her Southern Tutchone, Tlingit, Japanese, and Scottish heritage.
Diyet & The Love Soldiers is an alternative country, folk, and traditional band with catchy melodies and stories deeply rooted in Diyet’s Indigenous worldview and northern life. Diyet sings in both English and Southern Tutchone (her native language) and plays bass guitar. Backed by husband and collaborator Robert van Lieshout (acoustic guitar, drums & percussion) and Juno Award-winning producer Bob Hamilton (electric guitar, pedal steel & mandolin), this multi-instrumental trio hails from the Yukon.
This program is part of the Witness Blanket, on view in the Library from January 26 – March 10, thanks to funding from the Province of BC and the WVML Foundation.
This concert is made possible thanks to a generous bequest in support of music at the Library from the estate of Robert Leslie Welsh through the West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation.
