An important figure in the Manitoba Métis Federation, traditional singer Joe Venne is also a storyteller, dancer, and artisan. A great variety of traditional French song-types appear in his repertoire. All well, details of rhythm, phrasing, and modality indicate a wide spectrum of styles from French tradition as the immediate background for Venne’s singing of the “Louis Riel Song” (considered—among other versions - in the following article by Philip J. Thomas).
