In partnership with Manitoba Music, the diverse showcase -- dubbed Scène Manitobaine -- features performances by globe-trotting folk/roots quartet Oh My Darling, genre-defying singer/songwriter marijosée, hip hop outfit Namwira Folks, and punk/rockers Les Sexy.
Beyond an a stellar night of live music, Scène Manitobaine will host key local industry players as well as a Québec booker to bring attention to Manitoba's strong francophone music community. The event also offers the artists a chance to get valuable feedback from expers and gain more showcasing experience.
