Manitoba Live Music Event

The Cube
133 Albert Street, Old Market Square, Winnipeg, MB, Canada



We're closing out our 2018 season at the Cube with a wonderful early evening of music on Sunday, September 23. Joining us will be Rob Knaggs, Noah Derksen, and Eldur (Jensen Fridfinnson).


Australia's Rob Knaggs is a cellist and composer living in Canada's sub-arctic. Taking inspiration from the fascinating and freezing environment that is alive with wild polar bears, beluga whales, and northern lights, Rob uses his cello and live looping technology to create chilling oceanic soundscapes.

Rob is currently the musician in residence at Churchill Wild's internationally recognised NatGeo lodge, Seal River.


Born and raised in the heart of the Canadian prairies and maturing on the west coast of British Columbia, Noah Derksen writes with the groundedness of harsh Manitoba winters mixed with the optimism of British Columbia's coastline. Ever seeking motion and progression, Noah has spent the past three years honing his live performance skills across Canada and in select regions of the United States, playing concerts from BC to Nova Scotia, and Ohio to California. In 2018 alone, Noah played at renowned venues and events such as the National Arts Centre (Ottawa, ON), Northwest Folklife Festival (Seattle, WA), Trout Forest Music Festival (Ear Falls, ON), and the Winnipeg Folk Festival (Winnipeg, MB). 

With a self-described genre of "contemplative folk", Noah's introspective nature is immediately apparent, felt through honest and poetic lyricism alongside aesthetic musical arrangements.




As this is an outdoor show at Old Market Square, we'll be taking PWYC donations throughout the night for the performers (suggested donation of $5 or digital/physical music purchase). This event also couldn't happen without our wonderful sponsors of our entire summer series at the Cube: Smoke's Poutinerie Winnipeg and Depressed Rabbits.
