Blue Rodeo

Alt-country darlings Blue Rodeo are a gem from the Great White North. They have never let up since they released

“Lost Together” was hauntingly beautiful. Their music resonates with all age groups as it is both warm and contemplative. Vocalists Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor are two of the best Canada ever produced.

Claire Morrison – Summer Sunday Music Series

August 10, 3pm – Trinity Square

Folk songwriter Claire Morrison was born where two rivers meet, and makes music because she must. Spurred by a fierce devotion to beauty and tempered by sharp realism, hers are songs characterized by both light and dark, sweetness and melancholy. Breaking onto the scene in 2010 with Winnipeg-based duo Fire & Smoke, the 22-year-old poet delivers haunting solo numbers with fearless intimacy. Her rich, resonant voice can take you away and bring you home, her words can cut you deep and lift you up. Whatever the case may be, this Manitoban songstress offers up spare, stormy folk with a lot of heart.
