A rock music legend, Robbie Robertson is one of Canada's most inspirational artists. He began his rise to stardom as a member of The Band, later embarking on a successful solo career that broadened to include film scores, acting, producing and musical collaborations. Through a fertile blending of diverse musical styles, he has introduced Native music to a much wider audience. His album Music for the Native Americans helped to showcase the work of other Native artists on the international music scene. By transcending cultural and geographical barriers, he stands as a model for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists alike.
