Lone Cry Singers
Lone Cry Singers are Mi’kmaq from Prince Edward Island. We sing at Powwows all over Eastern Canada and the New England States. We work hard as a drum group to bring a ‘comp’ feeling to our songs but still believe in our traditional songs given to us from our elders and ancestors of the past. Our group stands strong in support of the rights of First Nations Peoples and have sang at many actions such as the Idle No More events and the protests in Elsipogtog to support our Environment Protectors as they fought shale gas development (fracking).
Lone Cry Singers came out of a vision to see our crew grow on the powwow trail. To share with our people and youth especially, to exist in an honourable way by showing an all traditional/Comp sober and clean drum group.
Lone Cry Singers work at bringing our drumming and culture to the schools and other events to showcase our style and traditions. During our trails we have met so many people and have formed strong bonds to what we call our Powwow Family. The group was formed in 2009 by Timothy Sock, Dresmond Cudmore, Charles (CJ) Cleal, Parker Larkin, Koady Sock and Stephanie Sock and later joined by, Branden Langley, John Quimby, Dason Knockwood.
