Orville Peck

Orville Peck

Combining the lulling ambiance of shoegaze with the iconic melodies and vocal prowess of classic American country music, outlaw cowboy, Orville Peck croons about love and loss from the badlands of North America. The resulting sound is one entirely his own - taking the listener down dusty rose-colored desert highways; through a world where worn out gamblers, road-dogs, and lovesick hustlers drift in and out of his masked gaze.

Acoustically Inclined

This year marks 30 years since the beginning of the A.I. adventure and though each member has gone on to make their own successful solo careers, they are flying home from various locations across the world to bring back the music that started their careers. This reuniting concert will not only be a magical recreation and in some case re arrangement of the songs fans came to love, but also a reunion of tribe and Winnipeg pride. This will be a musical party filling the West End Cultural Centre with hundreds of fans the band came to know as family.

Leaf Rapids

It started the way all good things do, with a story, one that emerged from the time-shrouded attics of Keri Latimer’s family history. A tale of the great-grandmother she knew only as tiny and soft-spoken, a gentle soul who only spoke Japanese. Who would have guessed that once, in her youth, that same little old lady stabbed a man with a pair of barbershop shears?

“If I knew what I was doing, I’d be doing it every day,” says Ottawa-based singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Fisher. “Most of the time I’m chasing ghosts and running into walls, so when I get my hands on a song that feels right and provokes emotion in others it can feel like the first time and that’s exciting.”

Off The Wagon & The Duhks

Off The Wagon & The Duhks

GRAMMY and JUNO award winners, seeing The Duhks live is nothing short of a spiritual experience. A syncopated bluesy banjo number seamlessly follows a Cajun two-step; an old-time jaunt nestles comfortably next to a gospel performance. One of the most musically adventurous bands to come from the roots scene in the past decade, The Duhks return to the stage is definitely a cause for celebration.

When he talks about his new album, Undivided Heart & Soul, there’s no glimmer of self-adulation, or even the confidence one might expect of a veteran artist. Instead, there’s a snapshot of McPherson’s creative process bringing the record to life, a journey filled with fear and change, then boldness, and, eventually, catharsis. This record chronicles a series of upheavals, frustrations, roadblocks, and kismet—a cross-country move, failed creative relationships, a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity, and learning to love making music again by letting go.
