Nashville, TNMulti-award-winning band, The Grascals, will perform at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian on January 21st at 7:00 p.m. for a celebration of the Inauguration of the President of the United States.
The Native Nations Inaugural Ball
will feature music, dancing and native cuisine. Funds raised will
support the educational programs of the National Museum of the American
Indian.
Located
on the National Mall in Washington D.C., the museum is one of three
facilities operated by The National Museum of the American Indian. It
offers exhibition galleries and spaces for performances, lectures and
symposia, research, and education.
Master of Ceremony for the event is Native American actor, Chaske Spencer, who has appeared in numerous films including The Twilight Saga, as werewolf Sam Uley. Other performers include the Murray Porter Band, Martha Redbone, Gabriel Ayala and Gerry Barrett.
Jamie
Johnson, founding member of The Grascals, is a proud member of the
Aamjiwnaang (Chippewa) First Nation of Sarnia, Ontario, where his
cousin, Christopher Plain, serves as tribal chief.
“I
am proud of my Native American ancestry and so honored for the Grascals
to be a part of the Inaugural events,” Johnson says. “Native
communities, past and present, are rich in cultural history and
diversity. It is poignant for Native Nations to join together in
celebrating the inauguration of our 44th President.”
The Grascals are nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album for Life Finds A Way (Mountain Home Music). The Grammy Awards air on CBS February 10th.
