Tomson Highway presents Songs in the Key of Cree

Thursday May 11, 2017 – 8:00 PM

Presented by Public Energy

Songs in the Key of Cree is a compilation of songs written over the past thirty years by Cree-Canadian playwright/songwriter/pianist Tomson Highway. The songs in the show are taken from five of his musicals over the years, in order: “Rose,” “The Incredible Adventures of Mary Jane Mosquito,” “The (Post) Mistress,” “The Sage, the Dancer, and the Fool” and a new work in progress as yet to be named. What makes the songs unique is their Cree lyrics. Cree is the most spoken Native language in Canada today. “Winnipeg, Manitoba, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Chicoutimi, Quebec, Ottawa…” that’s all Cree, a very rhythmic language that lends itself very naturally to music and music-making. And the style of the music is “cabaret.” Think Cole Porter and Kurt Weill (two of Tomson’s biggest influences)…with Cree lyrics.  Many songs will be sung in English, and some in French. Mr. Highway is tri-lingual in Cree — his mother tongue — French, and English. Songs in the Key of Cree is touring Europe in spring, 2017, with additional stops in Peterborough and Koerner Hall in Toronto.
