Manitoba Music is packing up its banners and hitting the road with a series of showcases in three important North American music markets next month. Eight buzz-worthy Manitoba acts will make the trip to perform for top industry players and savvy music fans in Minneapolis, Toronto, and Montreal.
Showcasing acts include acclaimed rock songsmith Greg MacPherson; post-punk indie band Les Jupes; pop rock outfit Mise en Scene; indie folk/rock act Sc Mira; Americana-tinged singer/songwriter Slow Leaves; electro rockers The Revival; folk powerhouse pair The Small Glories (Cara Luft and JD Edwards); and indie pop upstarts Yes We Mystic.
Manitoba Music will be presenting a showcase in Winnipeg for guest speakers from our upcoming Understanding A&R panel (November 22, 2014). These showcases offer artists a unique opportunity to perform for and network with influential music industry professionals from outside Manitoba. DEADLINE: November 3, 2014
One of Manitoba's most celebrated cultural treasures is turning 40.
Centre culturel franco-manitobain has been presenting, promoting, and fostering cultural and artistic activities in Manitoba's Francophone communities since it opened its doors in 1974. From music to theatre to visual art and beyond, the venerable St. Boniface establishment has been home to many artists and musicians, and a vibrant community integral to our province's cultural fabric.
