Pick Of The Day: Amanda Rheaume

Based in Ottawa, Amanda Rheaume is a roots singer-songwriter with two albums to her credit: Light of Another Day (2011) and Keep A Fire (2013). In the latter album, she has several songs that explore her Metis heritage, including her link to her great great grandfather A.G.B. Bannatyne who was a friend of Louis Riel and is considered to be a founding father of Manitoba.
