CBC Manitoba

Manitoban singer songwriters and musicians have long been celebrated for their talent. Just think of the Crash Test Dummies, The Guess Who, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Eagle & Hawk or Chantal Kreviazuk. Their songs are heard around the world. There's also a new generation of artists whose music isn't as well known, but certainly deserve recognition.

With that in mind I created the Manitoba Covers Project to give local artists a chance to pat each other on the back, musically speaking.

I asked people to pick two tunes that were important to them and that they could put their own musical stamp on. The final list includes songs from the Guess Who and Neil Young to Greg MacPherson and Keri Latimer. By the way, more new music will be added to the site in October featuring Marco Castillo and Alana Levandoski.

It was a pleasure working with all of the artists and I know you'll enjoy their work as well.

Spread the word.

I chose to record "Moody Manitoba Morning" because it has special meaning for me. I performed it at my good friend Tusa's wedding during the ceremony and Tusa, is Rick Neufeld's daughter. It is an honour to play such a well-crafted song that depicts our province so well.
