Celeigh Cardinal

Celeigh Cardinal is a prairie girl through and through. Her heartfelt, biographical songs are carried by a voice that harkens to the golden era of jazz and blues. This Métis singer/songwriter is easily one of the finest vocalists to hail from the Peace Country. A Celeigh Cardinal performance is a profound, soulful triumph of songs that blend roots, folk, rock and pop. Her voice at once evokes a gentleness and control which can turn to raucous, gut wrenching, twisted, turn-yourself-inside-out blues within a single phrase.  In May of 2017, Celeigh was the recipient of a “REVEAL Indigenous Arts Award” from the Hnatyshyn Foundation in Manitoba.  In 2016, she received an “ATB Listens” grant from ATB Financial and participated in the (Re)Claim program at the Banff Centre for the Arts.  Celeigh has also received a Youth Role Model Award from the Spirit Seekers Conference in Grande Prairie, and was appointed the Cultural Ambassador for the 2010 Arctic Winter Games.  She is a passionate performer who can draw an emotional response with her deliberate words and rich contralto voice. She is currently based out of Edmonton, Alberta and continues to perform alongside her duo, trio and with her band.
