Miranda Currie

Artist Bio: 

Miranda Currie is a northern indigenous artist living and working in Sombe K’e, more widely known, as Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, among the Dene people. She walks in two worlds, with one foot in her Swampy Cree heritage and the other foot in her Euro-Canadian ancestry.

Nominated for aboriginal singer songwriter of the year by the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2015 for Up In the Air, Miranda continued to hone her talents as a fiddle playing songstress while transitioning to the genre of children’s music and entertainment. Her children’s album Bouncing in the Boreal was released in November of 2018, and toured schools in Yellowknife, NT, Thunder Bay, ON and Canmore, AB. 

Miranda has been learning the Dene language of Tli’cho language since 2016. Working in schools she uses music to help students learn their indigenous language and culture. In addition to being a musician, Currie is an author, film-maker, seamstress and is currently in development stages of a northern indigenous children’s television show. Miranda lives in a cozy shack on the shores of the Great Slave Lake with her two sled dogs, Niyanin and Ellesmere.
