Performance Notes

× The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents William Prince on Wednesday and Thursday, November 29 and 30 2017 at 7:30pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. William Prince is the first performer in the Society's 2017/18 On Stage Concert Series. With the audience seated cabaret style on stage, our On Stage Concert Series allows for audiences to relax and enjoy an up-close and personal concert in this intimate venue.

Winner of the Contemporary Roots Album of the Year at the 2017 Juno Awards for his debut album Earthly Days, William Prince has taken the Canadian music scene by storm. Having also received the Western Canadian Music Award for Aboriginal Artist of the Year in 2016, and a nomination for Aboriginal Songwriter of the Year at the 12th Canadian Folk Music Awards, his accolades are building up - and this is just the beginning.

From Peguis First Nation in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Prince is an honest storyteller at heart. Delivered with smooth baritone vocals, his powerful lyrics communicate personal histories as well as the First Nations' seven sacred teachings. Heavily influenced by Johnny Cash, stating "Tennessee Flat Top Box is the reason I learned to play guitar" (CBC Radio), Prince evokes a variety of voices from Leonard Cohen to Barry White. But it's his own unique style that makes him a rising star on the Indigenous music scene.

Prince spent his summer touring at various festivals across North America including the Winnipeg Folk Festival and the La Casita Out of Doors Festival at the Lincoln Centre in New York. His single "The Carny" has topped the charts on the Sirius XM National Aboriginal Music Countdown Top 40, and his new single "You Got Me" is making its way there now.
