Under The Harvest Moon
on July 13,2014 by jared

Now that summer’s finally here, the time is right for announcing the Harvest Moon Festival 2014 line-up! With 2014 being the International Year of the Family Farm, we’ll be celebrating the tradition of family farming in a big way. Surrounded by the beauty of the Pembina Valley, this unique three-day festival is a celebration of the harvest season, local food production, the area’s rich cultural heritage, and the bond between rural and urban folks. The town of Clearwater will once again host the 13th perennial festival September 12-14, 2014.

UMFM is proud to be one the major sponsors for this year's festival, which features an unforgettable line-up, set to include the homegrown talents of: Royal Canoe , DJ Co-op & DJ Hunnicutt, Ridley Bent, Peggers Banquet, Del Barber, Heartbeat City, Les Jupes, Shotgun Jimmie, JD & the Sunshine Band, Yes We Mystic, French Press, Human Music, SC Mira, Naysa, SMRT, Kipp Kocay and his Band, Slow Spirit, and more TBA soon!

For the past 13 years, the Harvest Moon Festival has helped support economic development and family farming in Southwestern Manitoba. As well as economic development and great music, education and information has always played a significant role in the event. Festival goers can attend informative and hands-on workshops, which are free with admission. In addition to music and workshops, there will be a children’s area, a free-for-all jam session (bring your favourite instrument!), a fair-trade fair, a farmer’s market, and tasty locally produced food from a variety of exciting food vendors.

Last year’s festival was the first sell out, which means you can expect tickets to go even faster this year. Don’t be disappointed, buy your tickets early! Early bird tickets are available until September 1 in Winnipeg (Organic Planet), in Clearwater (Clearwater Country Market), and Brandon (Two Farm Kids). Weekend Passes ($55 adult/$30 youth ages 12-17). Camping ($10 adult/$5 youth). Friday only ($25 adult/$15 youth). Saturday only ($35 adult/$20 youth). Mooner Pass (1-5 people, max 2 adults): $150 (does not include camping). After September 1, prices of all passes will increase. Camping for adults is $15/person, and $5/person for youth. Kids under 12 get in free!

The Fringe Festival Is Back!
on July 7,2014 by jared

As always, UMFM's intrepid theater reporter Justin Olynyk, host of Play It Again (Wednesday nights at 8PM), and his team of reviewers will be in the middle of the action checking out some of the great plays and telling your all about them here!

Twenty-seven years ago, in the summer of 1988, the WINNIPEG FRINGE THEATRE FESTIVAL took its first bow in the Exchange District with five indoor venues, an outdoor stage and 47 performing companies. The festival has grown exponentially over the last quarter century and when the 2014 Fringe kicks off July 16, festival-goers will have the chance to experience the diversity of more than 170 performing companies from across Canada and around the world.

Comedy, drama, music, improv, dance – there’s something for everyone at the Winnipeg Fringe. With TICKETS starting at $10, it’s inexpensive to take a chance on an unknown play, or pick up tickets to the hot show. Advance tickets are on sale now at Fringe Central (MTC Box Office, 174 Market Ave., 204-942-6537). To see more theatre for less, a FREQUENT FRINGER PASS lets Fringe fans see 10 shows for $94. PROGRAMS are on sale now at Manitoba Liquor Marts, select Safeway stores, McNally Robinson Booksellers and the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre.

As an extra added bonus, this year's Fringe will also feature an amazing lineup of fantastic local music at the CUBE in Old Market Square, with shows running daily starting at noon and running hourly until 10PM!  This year's diverse lineup features the likes of Federal Lights, the Noble Thiefs, Young Pixels, Cannon Bros, Slow Leaves, Yes We Mystic, Atlaas, Mise En Scene, Sc Mira, the Perpatrators and more! Guaranteed, there's no better place to spend these hot summer nights, kicking back and enjoying a beverage or two with your friends!

For more information on the 2014 Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, including Outdoor Stage and Kids Fringe schedules, please visit us at www.winnipegfringe.com. You can also call the Fringe info line at 204-942-6537.

At The Edge Of Canada Special Presentation
on May 29,2014 by jared

An indepth conversation with one of the provinces best new talents!

Join host Liz Przybylski at 11am on Thursday, June 5th as she speaks with with one of Manitoba's most interesting up and coming songwriters, Leonard Sumner.  Sumner is an Anishinaabe MC/Singer-Songwriter from the Little Saskatchewan First Nation located in Interlake Region of Manitoba. He provides perspective from a voice often unheard and over-looked in the traditional music communities: truthful, insightful, and providing a new sound straight from ‘the Rez’. His music is best described as a fusion of Hip-Hop, Country and Rhythm & Blues.

His lyrics are intricate and honest, combine this with his powerful message and heart and listen as they massage into a raspy flow that growls with the bittersweet existential angst of Reserve Anishinaabe. On stage, he captivates crowds with a guitar slung over his shoulder, singing and rhyming to the beats, allowing his style to be enjoyed by people who typically ‘aren’t into rap.’
