“Their music weaves acoustic and electric rock styles with world beat, rhythm and blues and funk. These styles are accentuated with the rhythms and music of Native North America, creating a very eclectic and engaging live show,” said World Beat Festival Magazine.

Founded in 1994, by alumnus Vince Fontaine (BA ’93), Eagle & Hawk has combined modern rock with Aboriginal elements. With numerous awards under their wing, including two Junos, this popular Winnipeg band has taken their show on the road to play in major cities across Europe and towns in between and across our continent.
