Show Notes

I stepped way outside of my musical comfort zone for this interview with mezzo-soprano Rhonda Head, from Opaskwayak Cree Nation in northern Manitoba.

We talked about her journey from taking vocal lessons to becoming an internationally-known opera and classical singer, about her Indigenous Superstars interview series that highlights Indigenous artists from around the world, translating classical music into the Cree language, and so much more.

WR176: 1971

This week features a long conversation with 2/3 (or 2/4, depending how you look at it) of the hard-to-define Winnipeg (via Kenora) rock band 1971.

Stay tuned until the end of the episode for an excellent live, acoustic take on one of the tracks from the upcoming EP. ...
