THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+

Fast rising northern stars, The Jerry Cans, create music inspired by their hometown of Iqaluit, Nunavut in Canada's frozen far north. They fuse their unique mix of Inuktitut alt-country, throat singing, and reggae with a combination of musical influences from their roots in the Arctic where, the first European explorers from Scotland and Scandinavia brought their traditional instruments including accordions, fiddles and bodhrans into the region.

The Jerry Cans are a distinctly a, 'one-of-a-kind group', Nancy Mike, the only Inuk member, featured throat singer and accordionist, grew up in Pangnirtung, a hub for Inuktitut folk music. With the exception of violinist Gina Burgess, who travels between Halifax and Iqaluit, the rest of the Jerry Cans are all from Iqaluit, Nunavut’s fast-changing capital, where people from all over the Arctic and the world collide. Andrew Morrison, the band’s singer, main songwriter and engaging front man is a former Northern CBC Radio producer who’s lived in Iqaluit almost all his life. Morrison, the band’s main songwriter, has become fluent in Inuktitut.
