Hungry Bears 
Over the past few years, the town of Churchill, Manitoba has suffered some crucial blows. the decline and cease of the Port with a hundred workers losing their employment. two successive blizzards and a consequential flood that has affected the entire town, degrading and destroying the sole rail line that connected Churchill to the rest of the province. This phenomenon abruptly turned Churchill into a fly in community, sending produce prices sky high and the town’s morale to a disheartening low. Churchill is an extreme place to live at the best of times, with polar bears that stalk the town’s outskirts along the Hudson Bay and temperatures that plummet below -40, a temperature that is respectively frigid in both gauges.

The Hungry Bears Food Bank is in place to supply some support and cheer to Churchillians in need of valuable food resources over the long winter months. Please bring cash to this free event so we can send some Christmas cheer to subarctic this year. 

Rob Knaggs, an Australian cellist who has been living seasonally in Churchill since 2014, will be returning to Winnipeg to perform at Little Brown Jug in support of the Hungry Bears Food Bank. Knaggs’ debut record Up the Middle is an instrumental ode to Churchill, Manitoba that captures the spirit of Churchill’s seasons. Audiences across Australia and North America have been captivated by Rob Knaggs’ performance of cinematic soundtrack, post-rock, and ethereal whale song.

Performing in support is one of Winnipeg’s craftiest songsmiths, Ryan Stanley Shodine. Ryan's been performing his brand of clever, haunting folk music across the prairies for the past year.
