8:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Diyet was born in a tent and spent her childhood on the ancestral lands of the Kluane First Nation people in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Coming from a family rooted in traditions but tempered with a good sense of adventurous hippie attitudes, Diyet has created a musical presence that is as diverse as her Southern Tutchone, Tlingit, Japanese and Scottish heritage.

During the last decade Diyet has performed nationally in Canada and internationally in Europe. Performance highlights include major folk, jazz, world and multi-disciplinary festivals and theatres in Canada, tour in the UK and upcoming tours in Germany & The Netherlands. TV appearances include APTN Indigenous Day 2019 Live, CTV Atlantic Morning Show and CBC New Years Eve 2020 National Broadcast.

Diyet sings in both English and Southern Tutchone (her native language) and plays bass guitar. Backed by Love Soldiers: husband and collaborator, Robert van Lieshout (acoustic guitar, drums & percussion) and Juno Award winning producer, Bob Hamilton (electric guitar, pedal steel & mandolin); this trio multi-instrumental trio from the Yukon has a sound that can fill a big stage or capture an intimate room.
