  • Tickle My Fancy

    Pop/Rock, Roots, World

    A summer fill-in music show featuring artists and bands that I have enjoyed while volunteering at the many Manitoba summertime festivals over the past 20+ years. Many of these artists and bands would have performed at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the Winnipeg Jazz Festival, the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, the World Next Door Festival, the West End Cultural Centre, Garbage Hill Metal Fest, the Back Forty Festival, the Great Woods Blues Festival and others. For additional variety, I would also cue up tracks from music festivals in other parts of Canada, the United States and the world.
