Art Napoleon is host and co-producer of APTN’s popular show Moosemeat & Marmalade, an international food series that showcases Indigenous foods, traditional knowledge and outdoor cooking techniques.

 

This former chief is as comfortable on a big city stage or boardroom as he is skinning a moose in a hailstorm with a pocketknife. Art grew up in the boreal forests and mountains of Northern BC where he learned bush-skills including traditional plant use and outdoor cooking.

 

Art holds an MA in Language Revitalization from the University of Victoria, is a language educator and practices subsistence activities on a seasonal basis. Based in Victoria BC, Art remains connected to his home territory and his Cree and Dane Zaa roots.

 

When he is not producing TV, he tours regularly as a performer and speaker and also serves as a juror on arts & culture organizations across Canada. His moose stew has been known to cure hangovers and his campfire tales have mended broken hearts…or so the stories go.

Avalene is a quirky, lyrically driven song about dysfunctional fatal attraction in rural Canada; an addictive small-town love affair that leads to regrets and realizations later in life.

 

This gritty but upbeat lament is laced with catchy dobro, twangy baritone guitar and a trumpet section that kind of sneaks in from a side door. Fans of off-beat songwriters like Skip Taylor, Todd Snider, Ray Wylie Hubbard or Hayes Carll might want to give this a listen.
