Celeigh Cardinal is a prairie girl through and through. Blues and Jazz roots dig deep through her heartfelt folk songs. This Métis singer/songwriter is easily one of the finest vocalists to hail from the Peace Country. She has received many accolades in her musical journey. Celeigh was named the Cultural Ambassador for Arctic Winter Games 2010 for her artistic and cultural contributions. She was awarded with an Aboriginal Youth Role Model Award in 2010 in Grande Prairie for her dedication to Arts, music and creativity. Celeigh has just recently worked at the Banff Centre for the Arts as part of the “ReClaim” program and in October, 2016, Celeigh was chosen to receive a grant from ATB Financial and Alberta Music as part of a program to encourage to Alberta musicians.
A Celeigh Cardinal performance is a heartfelt, soulful triumph of songs that are a concoction of folkstyle blues, rock and pop. Her voice is a blend of gentleness and control which turns to raunchy, gut wrenching, twisting-and-turning-yourself-inside-out blues within a single phrase. She is a passionate performer who can evoke a plethora of emotions with her deliberate words and her rich contralto voice. Singing is what this woman was born to do, and it is evident in every performance. She is currently based out of Edmonton, Alberta and continues to perform solo, duo or with her band.
