- Richard Inman
- Morden Legion Hall
- 285 North Railway Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Richard Inman is quickly becoming a staple of Winnipeg’s folk and country scene. With a butter-rich voice and delicate musical touch, he crafts mature songs that feel at once deeply familiar and bracingly fresh.
The country/folk singer-songwriter grew up on a cattle farm in southwestern Manitoba, faithfully tuning in every week to CFRY radio’s Sunday request program with his dad. And every Sunday, Richard remembered, the radio would play Johnny Cash’s Sunday Morning Coming Down. His passion for music ignited, Richard’s dad taught his son a few chords, and slowly but surely, Richard learned to write songs for himself.
Between relentless gigging and a residency at the legendary Times Change(d) High and Lonesome Club, Richard has proven himself a savvy songwriter and true prairie gem. Catch him at this next show and he’ll make you a believer.
Patrick Simeons (Lakes & Pines)
Singer-songwriter of Morden Manitoba's folk-rock group Lakes and Pines, Patrick Simoens' engaging voice tends to the softer side, getting quite confessional at times. The indie quintet released their debut album "Peace Comes at Last" in May of 2017. This confident first album is not for the absent-minded listener. Songs like “Boy Scout Jamboree” and “Big Change Coming” can provoke some rumination; the album will leave you thinking deep thoughts whilst simultaneously appreciating the musical package in which they are wrapped.
