BULLHORN SINGERS IN KENSINGTON // Join us for an unforgettable cultural experience as the award-winning Bullhorn Singers perform on July 3rd and 4th in Kensington. Celebrating their 26th anniversary in 2024, this renowned powwow singing group from the Blood Tribe—a proud nation within the Blackfoot Confederacy—will captivate you with their powerful performances.

Event Details:
Dates: July 3rd and 4th
Time: 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Location: Outdoor Plaza along Kensington Road in front of Trapped (1139 Kensington Rd NW)

@bullhornsingersofficial are celebrated for their mastery in competition powwow singing, travelling extensively across the United States and Canada. Their singing style, deeply rooted in Blackfoot traditions, has garnered them numerous championships over the years. They are particularly famous for their songs accompanying the Kiitoki dance, or the Prairie Chicken dance, earning them recognition throughout North America. In 2023, they triumphed at the world championships in Rapid City, South Dakota, competing against top drums from both the USA and Canada. In their most recent accomplishment, Bullhorn collaborated with the band Reuben and the Dark on a song featured in the trailer for Martin Scorsese’s film, “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

Thank you to the @cityofcalgary micro grant program for supporting this event 💙💚

See you there!
