Manitoba MusicThe West End Cultural Centre would like to thank Manitoba Music for supporting our 25th anniversary celebration.

In 1987 a group of folk music enthusiasts set about renovating an old church into a community arts facility. 25 years later the West End Cultural Centre (WECC) has become an iconic Winnipeg institution committed to presenting out-of-the mainstream music, supporting artistic development, and increasing community access to the arts.

To kick-off its 25th Anniversary season the WECC has returned to its roots and created a two day celebration that will honour the artists and audiences who helped shape its vision for the past 25 years.

 

On Saturday, October 20th the celebration continues with a collaborative performance that will showcase members of the folk and roots community.

Featured performers include Nicky Mehta (The Wailin’ Jennys), Nancy Reinhold (formerly of Wyrd Sisters), Nathan Rogers & JD Edwards (Dry Bones), Daniel Roa, Ismaila Alfa, Keri Latimer (Nathan), Sam Baardman, Cara Luft, Lloyd Peterson, Scott Nolan, Vanessa Kuzina & MJ Dandenau (Oh My Darling), Andrina Turenne, Alexa Dirks and Ariane Jean (Chic Gamine), Red Moon Road, The Magnificent 7s, and more.

Saturday’s festival performance will celebrate the music, culture and community of Winnipeg. The variety of artists showcases the many emerging and established performers that are presented at the WECC each year. Performing artists are collaborating to select and rehearse songs that honour the breadth and diversity of Manitoba songwriters and the home that the WECC has provided for them over the past 25 years.
