Singer/songwriter, storyteller, and ukulele master Kate Ferris is ready to share her latest work and labour of love, Marie's Forest. Produced by music vet Dan Donahue, the album gets its release party at The Park Theatre on September 10, with some help from opener Erin Shorten. Before that, you can also catch Ferris live at the Matlock Festival of Music, Art & Nature on August 29, while uke fans can learn a thing or two from her via her upcoming classes through the Winnipeg Folk Festival's Folk School. Ferris' fun tune "I Want a Viking Funeral" is our featured download this week. Grab it and head to the Park to celebrate the album launch.
