“Two-spirit musicians show with RSO a beacon to Indigenous, queer youth Social Sharing “


When the Buffalo Girls took the stage in Regina Saturday night, the show wasn’t just about their music. Alongside their songs were anecdotes about life and about their experience as a musically talented, two-spirit couple to provide comfort to two-spirit youth walking the same path. The Buffalo Girls are a trio of musicians: Cris Derksen, a Cree Juno-nominated cellist and composer, her wife Rebecca Benson on vocals and Jesse Baird on the drums. The three took the stage at the mâmawêyatitân centre Saturday night as part of the LGBTQ2S+ aspect of the Regina Symphony Orchestra’s (RSO) Forward Currents Festival.
