Dejah Léger


Take a trip back in time to a winter living room, where modern-day technology is replaced by the wonder of traditional art and music. Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Dejah Léger brings traditional French-Canadian and Appalachian songs and stories to new life with her “crankies”, a unique folk art tradition. For her crankies, Dejah hand-cuts black construction paper into intricate silhouettes, and then scrolls those original images across a backlit screen – to musical accompaniment. The show is nothing less than magic! Performing with Dejah is her father-in-law, New Brunswick-born button accordion player and patriarch of La Famille Léger band, Louis Léger.
