Charlie Major & Shayne Yellowbird
Friday night, Charlie Major and Shayne Yellowbird graced the stage of the Open Air Hall in Peguis First Nation.
The Peguis Treaty Days Concert entertained the crowd that gathered to watch both Charlie Major and Shayne Yellowbird. Hosts Carl Bird, Chyanne Bear and Redsky Bird kept the fans laughing during the intermissions.
Rising to the forefront of the Canadian Music scene in the early to mid-nineties, Charlie had a heyday at radio as he became the first Canadian artist in history to score six BDS #1 hits off of his debut album. Nine more chart topping hits would follow, and Charlie would crisscross the world headlining tours and connecting with his fans at fairs and festivals.
Yellowbird burst onto the country music scene in 2006 with the release of his debut album Life Is Calling My Name. Garnering four Top-10 radio singles and videos, the CD led Yellowbird to countless awards and accolades, including the coveted CCMA award for "Rising Star of the Year," the "Best Country Recording" award at the Native American Music Awards (for North America), and the "Aboriginal Entertainer of the Year" award at the Aboriginal People's Choice Awards (for North America).
