About the Artists:

Dale Mac is a Singer/Songwriter from White Bear First Nation in Saskatchewan. The storytelling in his lyrics and driving music are both backed by his soulful and energetic guitars. Whether performing acoustic roots in intimate venues, amp driven blues, or rock based stage shows, Dale’s guitar writing is also the energy behind his range of songwriting. He has two releases under his belt and a third on the way that blends his threatened Nakota language, hand drumming, with contemporary guitar driven storytelling.
