Chipewyan musician, Tony Buggins, found his passion for music at house dances and fiddle parties in his home community of Fort Resolution, NT in the late 1950s and early 1960s. One of the founding members of “The Native Cousins”, he toured throughout the NT and northern Canada.  Settling back in the north, Tony works as a Chipewyan interpreter and through the years, has always kept his guitar and his music close to his heart.
