Interviews with Mimi O'Bonsawin, Ian Ferguson of Class of 91 and Charlie A'Court

Mimi shares about the women who have influenced her along the way and to whom she is paying tribute in her song Here's to The Women. We also talk about her connection to the land and how she will be playing as a trio at the National Arts Centre. She also tells us about the special mentoring program she is working with at the NAC.
