Where the Rivers Mix

August 23 & 24: Missouri Headwaters State Park

CHERRY RIVER, Where the Rivers Mix is a live music and art event, located at the glorious Missouri Headwaters State Park. CHERRY RIVER is a collaboration of Indigenous scholar and musician Shane Doyle and artist Mary Ellen Strom.

Acclaimed musicians the Northern Cree Singers from Alberta, Canada, and Jamie Fox and the Fox Family Fiddlers, a renowned Métis group from Fort Belknap, MT, will participate in this live music and art event. The musicians will perform on drift boats floating on the three rivers toward the confluence of the Missouri or where Native Peoples called “Where the Rivers Mix”. Doyle and Strom’s project examines the history and ecology of this significant site. The project CHERRY RIVER uses the flow of the three rivers as a narrative structure and a cultural bridge.
