About the event

For more info and tickets

Madeleine Roger is a folk  singer-songwriter from Winnipeg, Canada. While skillfully accompanying  herself on acoustic guitar, it is her artistry as a songwriter and  storyteller that can silence a room, uniting her lyrical prowess with  breathtaking melodies that linger long after they are sung. Her  critically-acclaimed debut album Cottonwood combines the  elegant storytelling of folk traditions with the grounded vibe of roots  music. It is a collection of songs that reflect on femininity and  equality, the majesty of the wilderness, and the beautiful awkwardness  of trying to love another person. Cottonwood reached the No. 1  spot on the National folk/roots charts in Canada, and also saw Madeleine  nominated for both “English Songwriter of the Year” at the 2020  Canadian Folk Music Awards and “Producer of the Year” at the 2019  Western Canadian Music Awards.

Laren Main, a young local musician, is impressing audiences wherever he performs. 

His love of music comes from being in a musical family where he was constantly surrounded by different sounds. The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash are also big influences.  He loves rock, folk and country  as well as other genres of music. He would like to try and make a living out of music or at least keep it as a skill he will always use.

Laren's performance on October 21 will itself be worth the price of admission and a fitting opening for the amazing Madeleine Roger.
