Manitoba Music at The Market

Round 2 of the Weekly Pop-up Concert Series Features Nine Stellar Local Artists Thursday in March 

Manitoba Music is bringing live music back to The Forks this March with a new round of Manitoba Music at The Market! Celebrating the talent and resilience of music communities in Manitoba, the free series of Thursday night pop-up concerts at the EQ3 Lounge and Room 201 features another lineup of phenomenal local artists. 

Kicking off March 2, the series is an opportunity to welcome music fans and market visitors alike to one of the city’s favourite meeting spots to experience live local music at its best. Made possible in part by the Government of Canada and running in partnership with Real Love Winnipeg, each show features artists sharing their original music in an intimate setting. 

Performers include Congolese-born singer/songwriter and music producer Adiyo, electronic jazz/R&B outfit Bluebloods, R&B/soul artist Keisha Booker, solo set from country outlier Boy Golden, husband-and-wife folk duo Burnstick, pop singer/songwriter Cassidy Mann, the powerhouse indie/pop of FONTINE, blind music producer and recording artist Mattmac, and acoustic chamber folk act Raine Hamilton.

“Live music is a powerful part of our prairie culture, and the music scene in Manitoba has never been more exciting,” says Manitoba Music’s executive director, Sean McManus. “The Forks is a natural gathering place and injecting these pop-up performances into that environment is a blast. We can’t wait to be back at The Market celebrating the talent and resilience of local artists again this March.”
