The West End Cultural Centre is pleased to present local singer/songwriter Heidi Wright. Taking the stage with her band on Friday January 24th, Wright will present her debut headlining performance including her recent single ‘The Boys of Valour Road’.
Born in Quebec in 2002, Heidi Wright currently lives in Winnipeg. She began writing music when she was only 12 years old after receiving a guitar from her Father. In the fall of 2018, Wright’s single "The Boys of Valour Road” received National Recognition as a Remembrance Day song that connects our current generation to Canadian War Veterans. The song received airplay on numerous radio stations across Canada and was televised by CBC and CTV.
Along with the airplay, Wright was honoured by MLA Andrew Swan with an award presented in the Manitoba Legislature for "The Boys of Valour Road”. In 2019 she was invited to perform at the Valour Road Remembrance Day Ceremony where she had the opportunity to meet relatives of the soldiers she wrote about.
Heidi performs regularly and has played diverse venues including the Winnipeg Folk Festival Stingray Young Performers Stage, Manitoba Music Showcase at the Goodwill Social Club, Bluebird Café, and Tootsie's in Nashville Tennessee, as well as the CANO Conference.
