It’s Junofest weekend in Winnipeg, and there’s so much going on that today’s show had to be pre-recorded, but I had to make sure that there was something on to celebrate great Canadian music and a couple of exciting upcoming events.
Upcoming shows! New music! Fun stuff! Oh my!
The new NQ Arbuckle album is on its way, so we see what we think. We've also got a new one from Whitehorse that's got us in the mood to parlez francais (or something like that.) Sunparlour Players and New Country Rehab are coming up, and Del Barber's doing release shows. Phew, that's a show!
A couple of long-awaited new releases to kick off the show, from Ridley Bent and Sunparlour Players. We also got the Folk Fest lineup and the Junofest schedule this week, so plenty to chat about there. Lastly, there are a couple of great shows coming up this week, including the two night CD release for Del Barber’s new one, Prairieography!
Live music, new music, and some rockin' classics from the 90s. Huh? It'll make sense if you listen. I think.
It’s a busy week for shows, and there are some great ones in the weeks to come, so plenty to preview and celebrate today. We also pay tribute to the late great Jeff Healey, a day after the anniversary of his untimely death.
