Juno award winner to perform in Thunder Bay

Aysanabee, 2024 Juno Award winner, will be headlining Canada Day on the Waterfront.

The multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter spent his younger years living just north of Thunder Bay. He then went on to make history as the first Indigenous artist to win the Juno Awards for Songwriter of the Year and Alternative Album of the Year.

Supervisor of the event, Louisa Costanzo, says that the show is a significant milestone.

“The event has undergone a transition over the past few years, moving forward in an inclusive and meaningful way,” said Costanzo. “This year’s event will continue that direction, celebrating our culturally diverse community.”

Aysanabee is Oji-Cree and part of the Sucker Clan of Sandy Lake First Nation.

He has performed more than 200 shows across Canada, now adding Thunder Bay to that list. The show will take place at Marina Park on the first of July from 12 to six p.m.
