THEiR LATEST ALBUM BROKEN
Back in May,
ROCKWIRED was invited to Winnipeg, Manitoba for the first ever
INDIGENOUS MUSIC CONFERENCE which was a part of the MANITO AHBEE
FESTIVAL. It was at this conference that we had to
opportunity to meet the Opaskwayak Cree rock band DEE ERIN BAND who
were both attendees of the conference as well as performers for the
CELEBRATE NATIVE MUSIC CONCERT.
We'd be remiss if we didn't add that this was the
band that kicked off the proceedings with their straight ahead, driving
rock n roll approach to music which is all perfectly captured on latest
album BROKEN ROAD.
