Jamie Fox

Métis Fiddle Concert with Jamie Fox

In conjunction with the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center’s current exhibition, “The Seventh Fire: A Decolonizing Experience,” the Center will be presenting a performance by the the Métis fiddling master Jamie Fox and her father Jim on guitar.

Jamie Fox is a Métis fiddler of the Aaniih and Nakoda tribes of Montana. The Métis are members of ethnic groups native to Canada and parts of the United States that trace their descent to both Indigenous North Americans and European settlers. Jamie grew up on the Fort Belknap Reservation of Northern Montana where she was immersed in a lively fiddle and dance tradition. She will perform selections from the tunes played there, derived from a mixture of Celtic, French, and Native American cultures, and some other “popular” Métis tunes that are played throughout Native country. She will be accompanied on guitar by her father, Jim Fox. 

This event is co-sponsored by the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center and the Hiawatha Music Co-op, which both strive to celebrate and preserve the folk music traditions of the region.
