Join us in an online performance event featuring beloved Canadian musician, Fred Penner.
Opening for Fred Penner is Northern Canadian duo: P I Q S I Q.

Whether Fred Penner was the soundtrack to your 90s road trip through the Rockies, or you're introducing him now to your kids, Fred Penner's classics are full of nostalgia and heart. Born in Winnipeg, MB, Penner quickly gained notoriety through his 80s and 90s CBC TV series "Fred Penner's Place". After children's hits like "The Cat Came Back" and "Sandwiches", Penner was cemented as a childhood icon for an entire generation.

Opening for Fred Penner is the sister duo PIQSIQ. Born and raised across Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, Tiffany Kuliktana Ayalik and Kayley Inuksuk Mackay have come together to create a modern sound, rooted in Inuit style throat singing, and tradition. Their music celebrates and explores their Inuit culture, and the land they come from. In its short history, PIQSIQ has performed on stages across North America and Europe.

Fred Penner and PIQSIQ were set to perform at Folk On The Rock's 40th anniversary festival this July, in Yellowknife, NT, prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. While we wish we could be welcoming these talented musicians into our community, we are overjoyed that we can celebrate them with you now.
