Why is it that in Winnipeg we can go for weeks at a time with nothing much going on, and then all of a sudden it’s non-stop action? Just when I’m back to school and actually have to be up in the morning and all of that, I’ve got two amazing shows, two days in a row that’ll keep me up late. I’m not complaining, believe me.
Monday, September 20 at Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club, I just have to go and see Geoff Berner, Carolyn Mark, and Ford Pier. That’s an amazing lineup, don’t you think? You’ve heard Geoff Berner on the show before, so I don’t have to tell you how great he is. Recently, I saw Carolyn Mark in concert for the first time and was blown away. She’s been called the most entertaining woman in Canada, and I will not argue. Onstage, she’s wild, wacky, exciting, interesting, sexy, and smart. This week, we’ll get to find out a bit more about her as Carolyn joins us live via the telephone. Once we’ve learned all there is to know about Carolyn, she’ll pass the phone over to her pal Ford Pier. You might have seen Ford as part of Martin Tielli’s backup band. He’s an accomplished songwriter and performer in his own right, and he’s got a great new album to introduce us to.
Tuesday, September 21 at the West End Cultural Centre, my old friend David Francey returns with Kieran Kane & Kevin Welch. I’ve been going on and on about this show for weeks, and for good reason. This is bound to be the most solid night of entertainment this year. With three amazing singer/songwriters being joined by virtuoso multi-instrumentalist Fats Kaplan, this is bound to be a stellar night of music. We’ll catch up with David Francey via the telephone to talk about the new album and touring with those fine folks.
Music & conversation with Carolyn Mark, Ford Pier, and David Francey, this Sunday.
Plus, whatever new music we’ve got time for.
Should be a great show, hope you can tune in!
