Pura Fé

Pura Fé, whose name means "Pure Faith," was born in New York City and is an heir to the Tuscarora Indian Nation. Her musical journey, running the gamut from folk to mainstream through an artful use of the blues, reflects the concerns of an artist who grew up in the Motown era, while citing Buffy Sainte-Marie, Charley Patton, and Joni Mitchell as her true mentors. More widely, Pura presents "traditional music from all over the world, wherever the spirit is connected to our roots."

Pura Fé has studied and performed with The American Ballet Theatre Company and has appeared in several Broadway musicals and TV commercials. She has sung for The Mercer Ellington Orchestra and countless jazz, R&B, and rock bands, and she has stamped her distinct vocals on many recordings, demos, music videos, and movie soundtracks throughout her career. Pura is a founding member of the internationally renowned Native women’s a capella trio, Ulali, and is recognized for creating a new genre, bringing Native contemporary music to the forefront of the mainstream music industry. Ulali has shared bills with artists including Buffy Sainte-Marie, Miriam Makeba, John Trudell, Richie Havens, Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and the Neville Brothers. 

Tickets $15 general admission, for sale in advance at aca.tix.com and at door night of show (box office opens 6:30 pm). Call 218-370-1272 for advance phone sales.
