    As a registered non-profit Society, Full Circles Talking Stick Festival, now in its 18th year, began as a way to showcase and celebrate Indigenous art and performance to a wider audience. From its humble beginnings, this unique and exciting event has grown into a full 2-week Festival held annually in February at locations across Vancouver. Now attracting over 20,000 attendees each year and still growing, we are noted as being the premier, multi-disciplinary Indigenous arts festival in North America. With a desire to appeal to Indigenous and non-Indigenous attendees alike, our programming focuses on the diversity of visual arts, dance, theatre, music, powwow and film in both traditional and contemporary formats. This year's #TSF2019 theme is hən̓əm̓stəmxw tə syəθ" (pronounced huh-num-stoh teh see-yahl), which translates to "Using Tradition".

    Blue Moon Marquee:
    Stemming from the Badlands of the Rocky Mountain prairies, Blue Moon Marquee is a self-styled gypsy blues band. This authentic duo writes and performs original compositions influenced by early blues, swing, and ragtime. A.W. Cardinal, a Metis of Cree heritage, howls with a distinctive thick and smoky vocal while playing a jazz tinged blues guitar. Jasmine Colette, aka Badlands Jazz, is the rhythm section who not only commands the upright bass but also keeps the swing with both feet while singing harmonies. Blue Moon Marquee's passionate performances and smouldering onstage chemistry is their trademark, and the way Colette's honey tones lift A.W.'s beaten down "bukowski-esque" mystique is something that enthrals audiences from the back room bar to the public square.

    Murray Porter:
    Blues Man Murray Porter’s music career has taken him all over the world for the last 40 years. He’s a proud Mohawk man from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory in southern Ontario, who now lives on Squamish Nation territory in North Vancouver, British Columbia.

    Murray may have a blues soul to the core, but he also grew up on rock and roll, R & B and country music. Porter’s first CD since his 2012 JUNO Award for ‘Aboriginal Album of the Year’is titled, “STAND UP!”and reflects these early musical influences. He strongly feels that this next album is some of his best music to date.

    Whether he is playing an intimate venue for local blues fans, as a solo, duo, trio or with his four-piece band, or on a festival stage to thousands of music aficionados, Porter’s love of performing comes across clear and strong. He has been compared to Dr. John, Joe Cocker and even Elton John! Robbie Robertson has called Porter “a master bluesman.” He captivates audiences wherever he performs and makes new fans…and they never leave his show disappointed.

    Shaped by the two oceans on the shores of South Africa, JPson has ridden the wave of life to Europe and defined a musical style that can best be described as "Fresh Folk". Music that let’s you open up to the groove of the moment, whilst forgetting the troubles of daily life.

    Having taught himself to play the guitar on the beaches of Cape Town, South Africa, JPson spent his youth surfing the Atlantic Ocean and exploring vast musical territory, yielding his very own sunbaked infusion of Folk & Roots music. Through his lyrics JPson shares the essence of life that drives him around the world and the lessons he learns whilst traveling.

    Not only is his music incredibly uplifting but his rhythms and beats will get you grooving in a festive and unifying spirit, bound to inspire reflection and new connection. His latest single “Hope for Change” which was co produced by the award winning songwriter, Thomas Oliver, is the first single off of the 2nd official EP written by young South African talent, JPson.

    The song cleverly combines fresh roots elements with modern day folk progressions, whilst adding an old school hip hop beat to the mix. JP wanted to infuse his love for reggae, folk and hip hop into one song without pushing it over the top and in the end succeeded with another addition to his “Fresh Folk” Repertoire.

    The perfect combination between a slight sea breeze gliding over a warm log fire and golden leaves skipping through Autumn forests.

    Marlie Collins is a diverse vocalist. Over the past 6 years, she’s performed multiple genres of music, including: classical, musical theatre, rock, soul and pop on stages across the globe. Now, Marlie is taking her original music back to her roots, gospel soul with an infusion of ‘70s funk.

    It has taken some time for Marlie to truly find her sound and style. Born and raised in Saskatoon SK, as the youngest of five, Marlie learned to sing and dance around the house with her brothers and sisters. She became heavily involved in musical theatre; always the goofy performer and began taking voice lessons at the age of 15 (Lord knows she was pitchy.) Musical theatre became her life but the sweet sounds of soul always had her heart.
