Show Notes

Roots/folk/bluegrass ensemble [Hay Fever](http://www.hayfeverband.com/) may have come to their genre of choice via a different route than most bands. While their excellent debut album is steeped in roots tradition, vocalist Zohreh Gervais and multi-instrumentalist Greg Hay sat down to talk about the five-piece's deep classical background (Greg, for example, is a member of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra), and the way that has impacted their sound. This episode brought to you by the Park Theatre, which is host to [Prairie Diva presents Spring Fever: Burlesque Fusion Cabaret](http://www.facebook.com/events/1597646643653916/), April 27-28... and by our friends in Winnipeg's finest rap group, [3Peat](http://https://threepeatmusic.bandcamp.com/), who are playing a [fundraising show](http://www.facebook.com/events/395512404256728/) for their upcoming European tour on April 27 at the Good Will. Stay tuned for an interview with 3Peat on next week's podcast! We also wanted to give a huge shoutout to everyone who has supported the podcast so far this month -- whether that's through sharing a link, subscribing to the show, following us on social media, or by supporting the podcast financially via [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice). Big hugs go out to Anthony Valade (oh man, I hope I pronounced your last name correctly!) and Omar Kinnarath, as well as =CF= and another new patron who chose to donate without a reward (i.e. without getting a shoutout on the show or the website). There are no words for what this support means. Thank you so much.
