Throw Another Manitoban On The Barbie

Posted on

Nathan, the Wailin Jennys, the Duhks and House of Doc are down in Austin, TX, representing Manitoba at the 2004 South by Southwest music conference and festival. The Wailin Jennys and House of Doc will be joined by BCs Oh Susanna at the Canadian BBQ and Shindig March 19, and Nathan will get in on the action later in the evening at the Roots, Boots and Toques party. Everything kicks off March 18 with a showcase from Juno-nominated quintet the Duhks.

The Manitoba BBQ held every year at Torontos North by Northeast music conference and festival is renowned as an it party full of great music, fabulous food and plenty of networking opportunities to get tangled in. Seven years ago organizers launched a similar party in Austin at SXSW (NXNEs sister conference) and the success of the Canadian BBQ and Shindig gets bigger every year.

Roots, Boots and Toques takes the party down the block and opens the club to the hot Austin night and even hotter Manitoban acts. For more information about SXSW 2004, visit
