Featured track, available from September 29 to October 6
The second annual Culture Days celebration is about to take over Manitoba for a weekend of events, September 30 - October 2. To get in on the party, Manitoba Music has teamed up with the Songwriters Association of Canada and Culture Days Manitoba for a unique workshop for songwriters on September 30. WritersConnect: A Guided Introduction to Co-Writing offers the public a free, behind-the-scenes look at collaborative songwriting, featuring acclaimed mentors Chris Burke-Gaffney, Keith MacPherson, and Jaylene Johnson. All three will also play a concert at The Forks on October 1. For a sneak preview of the festivities, we're featuring the title track off Johnson's latest album, Happiness, as our free download this week. Johnson recently landed a Western Canadian Music Award nod for Happiness and the song made its way into hit TV show, Degrassi: The Next Generation. Johnson will head to Winkler for Manitoba Contact on October 14 and then up to Whitehorse to showcase at BreakOut West on October 21 and 22. Grab some "Happiness", catch Johnson et al live, and check out the Live Music Calendar for other great music during Culture Days.
Every week, Manitoba Music offers free a downloadable music track by a great local artist. Available for a limited time from Thursday to Thursday, be sure to grab these songs while you can... and to check back for more!
