Dauphin’s Countryfest and the Indigenous Music Development Program at Manitoba Music are shining a spotlight on featured Indigenous artists in Manitoba at the second edition of the Nipin (Summer) Showcase. Running June 28 – 30 at the country music festival, the longest running country music festival in Canada, the artistic programming features 11 acts including musicians and dancers.

The genre-spanning lineup includes established and up-and-coming artists including hard rock band Ash and the Arsonists, the legendary C-Weed Band, JUNO nominated singer/songwriters Desiree Dorion and Renee Lamoureux, Indie-folk/pop artist FONTINE, country roots/rocker Jerry Sereda, fiddle champion and recording artist Jason Lepine & The Metis Spirit Band, and singer/radio broadcaster/actor/author Kimberley Dawn. Three-time JUNO nominated singer/songwriter Don Amero will be a featured act on Main Stage on June 30. Acclaimed “hip hop jig” group the Ivan Flett Memorial Dancers and dynamic square dance group United Thunder Square Dancers will also perform.

“Indigenous artists continue to make important contributions to the country music scene in Manitoba and beyond. We’re excited to be partnering once again with Dauphin’s Countryfest to amplify some of these incredibly talented Indigenous artists at the 35th anniversary of this venerable festival,” says Cassidy Mann, the Indigenous Music Development Coordinator at Manitoba Music.
