About the Artists:
Danielle Boissoneau is an Indigiqueer Anishnaabekwe from the shorelines of the Great Lakes. Published in various magazines from across the country, she sees her words as tools to rebuild possibilities. Danielle is a mother, a writer, a seedkeeper, waterwalker and according to her daughter, quite infamous. She loves the land and the water.
Kahsenniyo Tahnee Williams is part of the Mohawk Nation, wolf clan from Six Nations territory. As an artist, her personal experiences have molded her. She began utilizing her poetry as a tool for social change and community engagement in 2008. Her work is focused around the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (North America). It also aims to educate non-Indigenous peoples to create moments of healing and understanding for Indigenous peoples.
From festival stages to intimate house concerts, Piper & Carson remind us of why we go to see live music. Their songwriting is free and fiercely personal as if it’s been running in the woods, washing in cold water and howling with wolves. The couple’s undeniable chemistry and onstage presence draws the audience into the conversation. In October 2020 they released “a wonderful new recording “Edgewalker’s Remedy” –a concept album specifically designed to provoke reflection about our lives and what we all take for granted.” – Jan Hall, Folk Roots Radio “Piper & Carson definitely walk the talk.”
