ZEEGWON SHILLING PERFORMS AT THE GCHI DEWIN FESTIVAL

ZEEGWON SHILLING PERFORMS AT THE GCHI DEWIN FESTIVAL

Back at the beginning of winter biboon, MUSKRAT Magazine and ReZ Radio 91.3 FM co-presented the well-attended 5th Annual Gchi Dewin Indigenous Storytellers Festival in Wasauksing First Nation (Lighting the 7th Fire at the Gchi Dewin Indigenous Storytelling Festival) and Parry Sound, Ontario.

Over the next weeks of social distancing, MUSKRAT will be sharing some of our amazing festival highlights. This year we were more than ecstatic to showcase our very own Anishinaabe teen talent: Zeegwon Shilling. (Zeegwon means spring or fast flowing water in Anishinaabemowin) At the time of his performance of Neil Young’s Heart of Gold, Zeegwon had picked up the harmonica, only three days earlier. We are so grateful to his fabulous guitar teacher and music mentor Ruth Downs for gifting him that!

Enjoy …and remember #WeAreAllInThisTogether!  #SafeAtHome #MiigwetchtotheFrontline @Zeegwon

Zeegwon Shilling is a 14 year old, up and coming Anishinabe singer and musician expanding his knowledge and love of performing music. In November 2018, a video featuring him performing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah went viral on Facebook with over 100,000 views in 3 days. Zeegwon recently made his acting debut guest starring on CBC Televisions’ The Coroner (Episode 5) written by and starring amazing Indigenous talent of Shannon Masters and Tamara Podemski. Available for steaming on-line at CBC GEM.
