What makes a perfect week? How ’bout some live music, fishing derbies, or even activities for the kids! The Eastman Region has all of that planned this week and so much more for you to discover!
An Evening with Woody Holler and his Orchestra
January 24 – Pinawa Community Centre – Pinawa
Woody Holler and his Orchestra will invigorate you with their Western cowboy songs of yesteryear by singers such as Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Tex Ritter, and Bob Baker.
Woody Holler grew up on the Canadian prairie hearing the songs of the cowboy. Although classically trained in opera, a sense of nostalgia holds him close to those western roots. Woody has teamed up with some of Winnipeg’s finest jazz musicians to create his own brand of Western Swing. The resulting mix is a show not to be missed! The performance is reminiscent of a 1940s radio show, with a sound that is nostalgic yet thrilling. The repertoire is eclectic, fun and fascinating, featuring a dramatic range from the operatic to show-stopping “extreme” yodelling.
Preteen Winter Camp
January 24 – Roseau River Bible Camp – Roseau River
Head over to Roseau River and enter into a weekend filled with thrilling activities like tubing, broomball for ages 9-12 at the Preteen Winter Camp. Settle down to hear what the speaker has to talk about and then go discuss it as a cabin group.
Live Music Night
January 24 – Hespeler’s Cookhouse & Tavern – Niverville
With a little blast of old school ’80s, some classic rock, and a spit of country twist, The Villains take you on a fun-filled journey back to tunes you love!
