Tiiu Strutt

Tiiu Strutt

Tiiu Strutt is first-generation Canadian, of Estonian and British descent.  She moved with her small family to Mount Albert, the land of the Anishinaabe and the First Nations of the Williams Treaty, in the fall of 2012.  Tiiu has written and performed songs since her teenage years, and has performed across Canada as a singer-songwriter.  Since becoming a mother to two children, and spending time in the public school system as an educator, Tiiu has turned her focus to creating and sharing songs about the land for children and families.  Her songs cultivate a sense of joy and wonder for the natural world!  She is currently working on her fifth album, which is a collection of songs that follow a child's relationship with the land throughout the seasons.  The album is due to be released in the next year.  Tiiu is also active in East Gwillimbury, in providing outdoor arts programming to our community through the public library. You can find all of Tiiu's work, including videos and songs, on her website.
