Juno-award winning Canadian duo Crown Lands performs in a free concert in Brampton this weekend.

Crown Lands with Kevin Comeau (guitar, bass and keys) and Cody Bowles (vocals and drums) will be on stage at Garden Square in Brampton for a free outdoor concert on Saturday (Oct. 1) at 7 p.m. Metis singer-songwriter Amanda Rheaume will be the opener.

“Seamless musicianship and authentic selves are two powerful qualities Crown Lands utilize to engage and inspire audiences,” said Steven Schipper, executive artistic director of Performing Arts Brampton.

Recently Crown Lands received their first Juno Awards nominations, for Rock Album of the Year and Breakthrough Group of the Year, taking home the award for Breakthrough Group.

Crown Lands say their influences range from folk and blues to psychedelic to prog-rock.

The group’s name is indicative of its identification with marginalized people and interest in the troublesome history of Canada; “Crown Land,” also known as royal domain, is a territorial area belonging to the monarch—or, as Bowles puts it, “Crown Land is stolen land and we are reclaiming it.”

In addition to the concert there will be opportunities to shop an Indigenous-owned vendor market from local artisans and stores including: beadwork, jewellery, children’s books, candles and more.
