Massey Hall presents

The Jerry Cans create music inspired by their hometown of Iqaluit, Nunavut, and life in the Canadian Arctic. With a unique mix of traditional Inuit throat singing and folk-rock sung in the Indigenous language of Inuktitut, The Jerry Cans are a distinctly Northern sound. The band is passionate about helping to preserve the Inuktitut language and are committed to challenging common misconceptions about life in the North. Their reputation for infectious, high-energy performances has audiences across the globe catching catch a glimpse of life in Arctic. The band has toured extensively, released three albums and garnered fans and media attention from around the world.

The Jerry Cans are Canadian Folk Music Award winners and have been nominated for two 2018 JUNO Awards, Breakthrough Group Of The Year and Contemporary Roots Album of The Year.

In addition to keeping busy with the band, three of the members (Andrew Morrison, Nancy Mike & Steve Rigby) founded Nunavut Music Week and Aakuluk Music, a label the helps record, market, and distribute Inuktitut music nationally and internationally now, and for future generations of Inuit musicians.

"Robust roots-rock, gruff Inuk throat singing, beery Celtic punk... There's plenty in this ensemble's tank"
