SIX SHOOTER RECORDS AND INTERSTELLAR RODEO WELCOME VANESSA KUZINA AS COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT MANAGER IN WINNIPEG.

Interstellar Rodeo Winnipeg is thrilled to announce that Vanessa Kuzina has joined the team as Community Development Manager. Kuzina will be Six Shooter and Interstellar Rodeo’s woman on the ground in Manitoba, taking the reins on local partnerships, volunteer coordination and outreach initiatives.

“The depth of awesomeness in the Winnipeg arts scene is something to behold,” says Rodeo Boss Shauna de Cartier. “We have such an amazing team of people working to make Interstellar Rodeo great, and Vanessa has been a shining star in our constellation. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Vanessa bring her incredible energy and heart to the festival in a bigger way as she works to deepen our ties within the Winnipeg community.”

Kuzina has acted as Interstellar Rodeo’s Volunteer Services Coordinator since the festival launched in 2015. In addition to her experience as a musician (a member of the award-winning band Oh My Darling), Kuzina brings extensive non-profit and neighbourhood activism experience to Interstellar Rodeo’s team. Safety, diversity and sustainability have been Kuzina’s driving principles throughout her career, and her integrity, enthusiasm and creativity are welcomed with enthusiasm.

“Working for Interstellar Rodeo as Volunteer Services Coordinator for the past two summers has been a thrilling adventure,” says Kuzina. “I’m inspired by the awesome experience and culture that has been created and I am thrilled to be a part of Interstellar Rodeo as it grows. It is a fantastic event and atmosphere to be take in, I am absolutely delighted to come aboard the Interstellar Rodeo team as Community Development Manager for Winnipeg.”

COUNTRY SENSATION + RADIO DOMINATION: INTERSTELLAR RODEO WINNIPEG ADDS MARGO PRICE AND WINTERSLEEP TO THE BILL. LOCAL TALENT SHINES BRIGHT IN THIS YEAR’S INTERLUDE LINEUP.

Winnipeg is already buzzing about this year’s Interstellar Rodeo lineup, and now the festival announces two more major lineup additions: MARGO PRICE and WINTERSLEEP, as well as this year’s Interlude performers.

Songbird. Thunderbird. Jailbird: Margo Price is one of the biggest stories in country music this year, with a new album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, out on Third Man Records now, a recent performance on SNL and a history-making highest chart debut by any solo female artist. Price will play Winnipeg for the very first time on the Interstellar Rodeo stage.

Wintersleep is burning up the radio charts with “Amerika,” a new #1 single described by the Wall St. Journal as, “a big, bold song, revolving like a slow-motion tornado around huge guitars.” Wintersleep is a Juno-winning rock band from Halifax, NS that has performed on Letterman, among other triumphs.

This year’s Interludes include a number of incredible Winnipeg artists, including Begonia (a new solo project from Chic Gamine’s Alexa Dirks), electric Americana band Blond(e) Goth, Juno-nominee Del Barber and cowboy-meets-hip hop poet Leonard Sumner. The Interlude lineup is the place to look for new talent bubbling up in Western Canada: in addition to the homegrown faces, this year welcomes confessional songwriter Joe Nolan and country newcomer Sykamore both from Alberta. Toronto’s roots stalwarts NQ Arbuckle and piano boogie wizard, France’s Henri Hebert, will also perform.

SHINE ON: SARAH MCLACHLAN TO HEADLINE INTERSTELLAR RODEO WINNIPEG.

Interstellar Rodeo Winnipeg is over the moon to announce that Grammy and Juno Award winning singer and songwriter SARAH McLACHLAN, has generously and enthusiastically stepped up to the plate to perform on Friday, August 14, the opening night of the festival. McLachlan’s most recent album is the Gold-certified Shine On.

Six Shooter Records’ Whitehorse will join the stage as Sarah’s backing band for a rare and unique trio performance. Over the course of their careers, Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland have been prominent members of McLachlan’s touring band. In fact, Doucet, a proud Winnipegger, sent McLachlan the initial invitation to join the lineup. Interstellar Rodeo is proud to be a place where an exceptional community of artists can come together in a pinch.

“This show will be divine,” say Winnipeg’s own Sara Stasiuk, Festival Producer. “This is our first Interstellar Rodeo in Winnipeg; we want to demonstrate to present and future audiences how dedicated we are to making this festival something Winnipeggers love and can be proud of year after year.”

McLachlan joins two of Six Shooter Records’ own, iconic wildcard Hawksley Workman and Polaris Music Prize winner Tanya Tagaq, to make a truly world class lineup.

Interstellar Rodeo was saddened by the news of Sinéad O’Connor’s cancellation, and we wish her well. Regarding refunds, our stated policy on the website is: “Tickets are refundable only in the instance of the event being cancelled. Individual artist cancellations will not trigger event cancellation. If one occurs, we will do our best to bring in a replacement artist of similar marquee value.” This policy will remain in place for weekend pass holders. However, if Friday night only ticket holders are not happy with this lineup change, Interstellar Rodeo will issue a refund.
