Music Food & Friends with Richard Inman

Métis means a person who self-identifies as Métis, is distinct from other Indigenous peoples, is of Historic Nation ancestry, and is accepted by the Métis Nation.”

What does it mean to be of Historic Métis Nation ancestry? One must have an ancestral connection to the historic Métis community.  This is more than proving that one has an ever-so-great “Indian” ancestor.  The requirement is for an ancestral connection to a “Métis” ancestor.  Further, that Métis ancestor must have lived, used and occupied the Historic Métis Nation Homeland.

Borrowed from the document “Who are the Métis in the Métis National Council? By Jean Teillet

We look forward to showing you around the guest house.  You will appreciate the details in the rooms and décor.  Wonder around the land with us, along the Whitemouth River and learn about medicinal plants and wild edibles.

Coming in the fall of 2020, the river round house and teaching lodge will be an exclusive off-grid experience for those who truly want to disconnect.  The round house sits adjacent to the sweat lodge that was gifted to the land by Creator under the guidance of elder, Dennis Morrison (Bebahmoytung)

Spiritual Caregiver, Muskrat-Ode-dam (Clan).

THE MUSIC

Featuring Richard Inman

“People ask me what music I find on tour. Check out Richard Inman. Great writer. Deft and sophisticated heartbreak is his specialty. Also a very funny guy. He lives the songwriter’s life with the highest intensity.”

– Geoff Berner, Vancouver, BC

“Richard Inman’s songs are so good they don’t need choruses, turning uncomfortable truths to poetry and back again. One of the truest songwriters and storytellers around.”

– Scott Nolan, Winnipeg, MB

“Richard Inman is a timeless and tireless champion of song. I hear 100 years of Canadian songwriting tradition in the words, melodies and voice of Richard Inman. One of Winnipeg’s most compelling musical talents.”

– Jaxon Haldane, Winnipeg, MB

Richard Inman is quickly becoming a staple of Winnipeg’s folk and country scene. With a rich baritone voice and delicate musical touch, he crafts mature songs that feel at once deeply familiar and bracingly fresh.

Splitting his time between south eastern Manitoba and central Alberta, Richard shares authentic stories and songs about the everyday people and places he comes across.

He has released three full length albums to date 2015’s 30 Days, his self-titled CD Richard Inman produced by Winnipeg’s singer songwriter Scott Nolan, and his latest project Hasta La Vista released in November 2019.

Between relentless touring and a residency at the legendary Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club, Richard has proven himself a gifted songwriter and true prairie gem.
