Co-presented by Dawson City Music Festival & Klondike Institute of Art & Culture
DCMF is thrilled to announce Cherrie Laurel as our 2024 Songwriter in Residence. Cherrie Laurel is the solo project of Edmonton-based artist Brittney Rand.
Brittney is an accomplished electronic music artist, sound recordist, and composer trained in digital music production. In 2013, Brittney co-founded electronic duo Mu, gaining international acclaim with their album ‘II’. After several years with Mu, Rand established her solo project, Cherrie Laurel, releasing ‘A Furnace, A Fire’ in 2018.
Dawson City’s favourite “singer drone-writer” Bird Feet will open the evening.
An amazing double-bill of boundary-pushing electronic song. Not to be missed!

Youth Art Enrichment

Youth Art Enrichment is an annual four-day art program for Yukon youth hosted by the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture in Dawson City. Artistically-inclined youth ages 14 – 18 travel from across the Yukon to take part in intensive workshops led by professional artists. Students choose one of three mediums to study for the duration of the program, learning new skills, techniques, and ways to creatively make artwork for the world to see. The mediums change every year: we have offered printmaking, animation, painting, carving, stained glass, illustration, improv, and much more over the last two decades.
