Diyet returns to the Yukon Arts Centre Mainstage with her Love Soldiers (Robert van Lieshout and Bob Hamilton) for Yukon first sneak-peek of brand new catchy alt-folk music.

Opening for her is Igloolik, NU singer-songwriter Lazarus Qattalik, in his first performance outside of Nunavut!

Join us for an evening of unforgettable northern music!


Born in a tent, raised in a cabin on the shores of a glacial lake in the Kluane region of Canada’s Yukon Territory, Diyet embodies her Southern Tutchone, Japanese, Tlingit and Scottish roots with a musical presence that is equally diverse and unique.

Diyet is Alternative Folk, Roots, Country and Traditional Aboriginal with melodies and stories deeply rooted in her Indigenous world view and northern life. Her songs are an interpretation of a northern reality: hard, raw and will break you if it can but at the same time, always beautiful, gentle, strange and intensely alive. She performs as a trio, Diyet & the Love Soldiers, with husband and collaborator, Robert van Lieshout on guitar and foot percussion and multi- instrumentalist Bob Hamilton on mandolin, guitar, and pedal steel. Continuing to live with feet firmly planted in two worlds, Diyet’s adventurous and sometimes chaotic life is on full display in her music. She often says, “yesterday, fishing for our dinner on the ice, the next day, on the stage singing for you!


This event is a part of the N3 Arts Presenters Summit, Generously supported by The Government of Canada, The Yukon Department of Tourism and Culture and Canada Council for the Arts.
