Show Notes

Things mellow right out this week with Anne-Marie and Patrick from the excellent franco-folk group Chez Willi, who showed up with accordion and upright bass for one of the best live performances we’ve had on the show (see video below) and a good discussion. This week’s theme is “snow,” determined, as usual, by our trusty random word generator.

WR292: Project: Constellation

We've gone international for this episode... kind of. The guests, Santiago and Christina of folk duo [Project: Constellation](http://www.facebook.com/projectconstellation), are based in North Dakota but have strong Winnipeg connections. They're joined by Chanelle, one of their collaborators when they perform and record on this side of the border. They talk about touring, finding their sound, Santiago's former gig as a Winnipeg-based Buddy Holly impersonator (for real!), plus they perform three songs live! This episode brought to you by our friends at the Park Theatre, who are presenting '[Buffy Prom](http://www.facebook.com/events/222171375002264/)' on June 17!
