July 24 – Cohen Sieg

At 22 years old, Cohen Sieg has been writing and performing for over half his life. Hailing from Sieg’s Corner, MB, he has become a local favourite, while also making his way to festivals and events across the country. Cohen is a folk/pop singer-songwriter who is known for playing love songs on his acoustic guitar, but he is also a talented multi-instrumentalist playing a full band of instruments including bass, keyboard, ukulele, and percussion, to name a few. Cohen is a solo-musician but with the help of his looper, his captivating performances encompass the sounds and impact of a full band. It’s truly a performance that has to be seen in person.

July 31– Made in the Shade

August 21– Tim Osmond

Tim Osmond does his absolute darnedest to surround himself with music at all times.  As well as being an accomplished Scruggs-style banjoist, his skills are put to work while finger-picking guitar and the Dobro. Tim takes his inspiration from the very roots of bluegrass and old‐time Appalachian music all the way to the variations on those themes he hears from his contemporaries, and brings them to the table each time he plays with the Manitoba bluegrass quintet The Stanley County Cut-Ups, The Spectacles trio, or as a solo performer. Tim has played at festivals and events from coast to coast in Canada since the turn of the century.

August 21– Garth Reid

He has performed and/or recorded with the Muddy River Stringers in St Andrews and the Crash Test Dummies with a banjo track on their first album. Today he does covers of country hits and plays at jams and open mics throughout the Interlake.

United for Literacy Reading Tent

The United for Literacy (formally Frontier College) Reading Tent is back as well with two tents. Reading Tents aim to reduce the loss of knowledge and skills between the end of one school year and the beginning of the next. Focusing on literacy in a broad sense, the staff engage children in fun and inclusive activities based on diverse learning styles and reading levels. Reading Tent sessions engage learners in crafts, reading circles, movement-based activities, and end with participants selecting a free book to take home!
