John K. Samson celebrates the release of second solo album Winter Wheat 
Inspired by the search for connection and community, his hometown of Winnipeg, and our individual and collective struggles with addictions, John K. Samson’s Winter Wheat is a sprawling, masterful and timely work by a writer at the peak of his powers. 

Winter Wheat was produced in garages and homes through a challenging Winnipeg winter by Samson’s partner and collaborator, Christine Fellows, and his Weakerthans co-founder and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jason Tait, and mixed in the spring in Toronto by Robbie Lackritz (Bahamas, Feist). The spare and thoughtful arrangements also feature Greg Smith of The Weakerthans on electric bass, Ashley Au on double and electric bass, Leanne Zacharias on cello, and Shotgun Jimmie on electric guitar.

Songwriter Christine Fellows will be opening. Christine and John were recently named Writers-in-Residence at the Winnipeg Public Library for 2016-2017.
Christine released Burning Daylight in 2014; this beautiful album and its companion book were her sixth full-length album and first collection of poetry respectively.

Quicksilver Halo, who sold hand crafted necklaces and charms at the United Kingdom Pavilion #@ukpavilion during the 2016 Folklorama, will be selling their artwork at the following events.

"Sounding Thunder: The Stories of Francis Pegahmagabow"
Dr. Brian McInnes
Department of Native Studies 2016-2017 Colloquium Series

Francis Pegahmagabow (1889–1952) was an Anishinaabe born in Shawanaga, Ontario. Enlisting in the First World War, he became the most decorated Canadian Indigenous soldier for bravery and the most accomplished sniper in North American military history. 

After the war, Pegahmagabow settled in Wasauksing, Ontario. He served his community as both chief and councillor and belonged to the Brotherhood of Canadian Indians. Francis also recorded many stories describing many parts of his life in a classic Ojibwe narrative.

Join scholar and Indigenous language advocate Brian McInnes as he provides valuable insights on Francis’s words and world. Presented in their original Ojibwe, as well as in English translation, the stories also reveal a rich and evocative relationship to the lands and waters of Georgian Bay. Buy a copy of the book

Brian D. McInnes, a faculty member in the Department of Education at the University of Minnesota Duluth, is an advocate for and speaker of Anishinaabemowin. A member of the Wasauksing First Nation, Brian is a great-grandson of Francis Pegahmagabow. Sounding Thunder is his first book.

This is an entirely pop up event. Dress warmly and bring anything you need: folding chairs, drums, instruments. We will be providing hot chocolate and cookies. Bakers welcome to contribute. Festival dress and costume encouraged. 

This year we combine our celebration with public outreach. We will set out from the park before ritual to sweep the neighbourhood in the four directions. We are preparing a hand out scroll that will be informative. It will be available for you for download and printing if you'd like to use it at your family parties, or at the door for trick and treaters. 

There will be a broom making workshop the weekend before. Collect plant materials to use to make brooms. Masks and lanterns may be included in the workshop and volunteers to help with children’s craft making for ritual are encouraged to contact the planning group. Craft supplies (ribbon, twine, flexible cardboard, glue, feathers) are being collected. 

Brooms will be used in a dance during circle. Simple steps will be demonstrated. There will be safe space for those who are not dancing. If you aren't able to come make a broom bring one from home. Decorate it if you want, or just bring it as is.

We call on you to remember and honour the ancestors of this land, the Anishinaabe, along with your departed. Blessed be

“Honest & affectionate, with a little bit of whimsy,” is the sentiment behind songstress Lauren Mann’s latest album Dearestly. The songs are a poignant narrative of dark and light set against the backdrop of different landscapes, and chronicle years of touring and personal joys and struggles. 

Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, West My Friend has an acoustic blend of instruments and four-part harmonies that challenges the conventions of popular music. West My Friend’s new album Quiet Hum is out now.
