Show Notes

For a decade straight, Winnipeg's Dirty Catfish Brass Band has been entertaining audiences and moving dancefloors.

I sat down with four members to talk about their upcoming record, the challenges and logistics of being an eight-piece band during the pandemic, determining their set lists for their radically different types of shows (even funerals!) and more.

(BONUS) Incognito Johnson: Murder, Madness and Madrigals

Happy Halloween! This isn't a regular episode of Witchpolice Radio. It's not even an episode of Witchpolice Radio at all. At various points over the past couple of years, I've been recording episodes for a potential second podcast called 'Incognito Johnson' with my pal Alex Seville, who now lives out in San Francisco.Here's a sample episode, about a 16th Century composer known for murder, witchcraft, and other spooooky stuff. It's not an interview, but more of a "listen to this crazy shit" story about a historical (musical) figure.|If you're some kind of expert on the life of Carlo Gesualdo and I got a bunch of stuff wrong... sorry. Blame the authors of the articles I read as background! I cite at least one or two of them in the episode and when I get time will add links to this page.If you like this episode, please let me know. We have more of these recorded, and I'm trying to figure out how (or if) I should properly release ...

WR332: Jesse Matas

Singer-songwriter [Jesse Matas](http://jessematas.com/) is best known as one-third of roots sensations the Crooked Brothers, but he's also one of my oldest pals. Having heard his music in all of its various forms for over two decades, I can safely say his new solo LP "Tamarock" (which comes out this Friday with a Winnipeg release show at the WECC) is the definitive Jesse Matas record. We talk about the record's natural inspirations, working as a solo artist after years in an acclaimed group, and much, much more. This episode brought to you by our friends at the [Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far.
