The Lost Jingle Dress is my first ‘published’ piece of creative nonfiction. The story lauds the small, tight-knit community of Jasper, Alberta. I wrote it in 2014, and it was performed by Stuart McLean in 2016 for the CBC Radio program Vinyl Café. It aired in the story exchange segment of the “Indigenous Music” episode of June 3 & 4, 2016.
Stuart McLean’s performance of The Lost Jingle Dress is archived in the Education and Research Archive of the University of Alberta’s Libraries, here. Forgive the amateurish sound production. This version was recorded from the public radio broadcast onto a private-owned iphone 5 in m4a format.
