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. Live 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. Musicians on the rivers will include Métis fiddlers, the Fox Family from Fort Belknap, a Native round-dance drum and singing group and traditional string players from European lineages.
