The Rise and Fall of Dan Hill
Each Miijidaa Life Story is like a perfectly mixed cocktail. Two parts conversation, one part live music (or video clips in the case of Santee Smith), one part question and answer and splashed with a dash of the unexpected. Each evening includes 2 – 40 minute interview sets and ends with a post-show meet and greet. And, everyone comes away with the story behind the person.
Dan Hill has played a role in creating multiple gold and platinum recordings. His classic hit Sometimes When We Touch has been played on radio close to five million times. The Grammy and Juno Award winner will discuss his rise and fall in life and the beauty of overcoming it all in an inspiring interview with host Cameron Smillie.
