Saskatoon & Area

Gimme Some Mo'

It's one part study of social media and how it relates to business, and one part rockin' indie music festival.

MoSo Fest is back for another year and after all the workshops and speakers, it's time to kick back.

This festival is a place where you can discover new music, stuff that will be mainstream and you can be on the cutting edge.

Performers this year include the psychedelic vibe of Powder Blue or Atlas Sound as well as the folk styling of Old Cabin or Andy Shauf.

Too many to name but the entire schedule can be yours, just follow the handy link below.

MoSo Fest runs until Saturday at various venues in Saskatoon.

For Olivia

It's a music show and it's for a great cause.

Local musicians The Karpinka Brothers are getting a few friends together for a benefit show. 

It's called Fundraiser for Olivia and along with the live performance you could walk away with an amazing piece of musical gear.

A 3 year old girl from Saskatoon named Olivia is getting some specialized treatment at the STAR Centre in Denver Colorado.

Olivia needs help eating and has a feeding tube.

Along with the Karpinkas, there will be other surprise guests. Aaron Karpinka is giving a little extra, he's putting his Kurt Cobain signature guitar up for auction Sunday with proceeds going to Olivia.

The show is Sunday at Vangelis Tavern.

Vocal Magic

A classic piece with a modern twist, that's Saskatoon Opera's mission with its latest production. 
Saskatoon Opera is bringing the magic of Mozart to life this weekend in Saskatoon.

The company is taking on Mozart's 'The Magic Flute' but setting it in modern times with all the bells and whistles of technology.

The music on stage is some of the most well known operatic pieces out there today.

The cast is very proud to have a pair of local vocalists, Gordon Bintner from Regina and Courtney Atkins from Saskatoon.

Don't worry about a language barrier. As with all Saskatoon Opera productions, there will be surtitles projected above the stage.

'The Magic Flute' opens Thursday and runs until June 21 at the Persephone Theatre.

You can hear it all live at Casino Regina in the show lounge on Friday night.

Dad's Day

JazzFest is in full swing and along with celebrations all weekend, there is the annual Father's Day Brunch.

Swing on down to the Ramada Plaza for a bite to eat and a show by the Brandi Disterheft Trio.

If you'd like a little more music there is a free day in the park.

Lorraine Klaasen is the headliner for that show with her tribute to Nelson Mandela.

This is a multicultural showcase with performances by a steel drum band and the Ugandan Canadian Association.

JazzFest runs tonight until Sunday at various venues in Regina.

One Shot of Happy

A true piece of Canadiana as old time fiddles blend with folk guitars and the occasional djembe. 
The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra brings their blend of eclectic folk to The Exchange this weekend. (

This is the sound of the Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra.

It's eclectic, witty and beautiful music and you can hear this band from British Columbia live this weekend.

The Orchestra will take the stage Sunday night at the Exchange.
