Jeremy Dutcher to headline Danforth Music Hall

The Polaris Prize winner heads up this week's just announced Toronto concerts. Also: Thom Yorke, Charli XCX, Toro y Moi and more


After recently playing an Indigenous music showcase at Luminato, Jeremy Dutcher will be returning to Toronto this October for his own headlining show – one of his biggest yet. 

He won the Polaris Prize for his album Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, but it’s his live show that will blow you away – his operatic tenor vocals and virtuosic neo-classical piano playing are almost hard to believe in person. And he’s been playing his recent shows with full Canadian orchestras, which just enhances the beauty and grandness of his songs. 

Those songs are rearrangements of songs from the Wolastoq First Nation where Dutcher grew up, a combination of 1900s wax cylinder field recordings from his community and his own distinct artistry. And chances are he’s got some new stuff in the making, too.

October 12 at Danforth Music Hall (147 Danforth), doors 7 pm. $20-$45. On sale Friday (June 21). ticketmaster.ca.
