Aboriginal Country Music Hall of Fame to recognize local, grassroots musicians – Manitoulin Expositor

February 7, 2014

SERPENT RIVER—The new Aboriginal Country Music Association and Hall of Fame will soon be holding induction ceremonies for Manitoulin Island at the M’Chigeeng First Nation.

“Our next induction ceremony will take place in M’Chigeeng,” said Roger Daybutch of the new organization, prior to an Aboriginal Country Music Hall of Fame event held in Serpent River First Nation this past Saturday. “In talking to various community groups, we have communities from North Bay to Sault Ste. Marie, including Manitoulin Island that we want to hold similar events in. Our window of opportunity takes in the period from now until June when the powwow season begins, so we are hoping to hold as many events as we can.”

The initial induction ceremonies into the Aboriginal Country Music Association Hall of Fame was held in Serpent River last Saturday. Along with entertainment provided by some of the best local country music entertainers in the business during the evening, several musicians were inducted into the association’s hall of fame. This past weekend’s association inductees included Taylor Armstrong of Mississauga First Nation, Rod and Terry Lantain of Serpent River First Nation, and the hall of fame inductee’s included Leo Day of Serpent River and Thomas Daybutch of the Mississauga First Nation.
