Winnipeg's Culture Days
festivities kick off September 28 and will run through the weekend. But SCENE is celebrating our city's cultural heritage a little bit early.
Thanks to host Janet Stewart and filmmaker Caelum Vatnsdal we're getting the inside scoop on some of Winnipeg's least known cultural secrets.
in Winnipeg's North End got started in 1974 and has built its catalogue around six streams of music, Aboriginal, fiddle, polka, country, Ukranian and trucker's music.
Watch co-owner Linda Michaels tell Janet how this recording studio and record company on Selkirk Avenue ended up with such a cheerful name.
In this second installment of CBC's Cultural Secrets of Winnipeg, host Janet Stewart unearths almost a dozen more cultural and quasi-cultural gems hidden across the city.
In one frantic day, Janet visits and learns about galleries, restaurants, neighbourhoods and other institutions ranging from the not-as-well-known-as-they-should-be to the not-known-at-all.
You can catch it all on September 27 at 6:30 p.m. on CBC Television.
