6 Beats Apart - Kym Gouchie Trio

Saturday March 20 5:00 to 6:00 pm
Saturday March 20 7:30 to 8:30 pm

Trail & District Arts Council presents the Kym Gouchie Trio as part of the 6 Beats Apart series.

Kym Gouchie’s ancestral roots are in the Lheidli T’enneh, Cree and Secwépemc Nations, Kym Gouchie is fostering change through her music and art. Kym’s traditional hand drum, clean, crisp acoustic guitar and full-bodied voice make her a powerful artist. Traditional First Nations, folk, and country tones alongside poignant and inspirational lyrics capture the hearts of young and old — her genuine and heartfelt performances in her trio have a profound and often emotional impact on her audience.

Her music brings awareness to First Nations and women’s issues, promoting reconciliation and community building while reminding us that we are all in this together. Her stories are a testament to the human spirit, weaving together threads of her own journey from personal tragedy to triumph.

Highlights in recent years include: being one of four featured performers on BC Premier John Horgan’s LIVE online concert at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown; receiving Stingray Music’s “Rising Star” award; performing her songs and interviewing LIVE on CBC Radio’s The Current during a special broadcast on the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls; having her song “Sister Rain” hit #1 on National Indigenous Music’s Top 40 Countdown; having her song “For the People” chosen and featured on a national CD produced by Canada’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission to educate Canadians about the Residential School Legacy.

Kym is currently working on various projects which include a Children’s Album geared towards resurrecting and teaching her Indigenous language, and she’s writing a one-woman play titled ‘Her Blood Runs Through My Braids’ which is an expose honouring her four Grandmothers and how their lives have taught and inspired her.

A respected artist and elder-in-training of the Lheidli T’enneh Nation, also known as Prince George, BC, Kym is sought after to perform and speak at traditional welcoming ceremonies, cultural gatherings, schools, and conferences.

“Performing with a combination of soulful expression, focused intent, integrity, and artistic depth, Gouchie embraces and holds audiences while imparting messages and truths in songs that need to be heard. Kym Gouchie is a force.”- Salmon Arm Roots & Blues
