Winnipeg Folk Festival Launch featuring The Duhks
Noon, Tuesday, July 6
Old Market Square
Long local favorite, The Duhks are a rollicking roots act filled with some of Manitoba’s finest musicians such as banjo demon Leonard Podoluk, serene singer Sarah Dugas, drummer Christian Dugas, and guitarist Jordan McConnell. Diving deep through North American folk and soul, the Duhks deliver a show that’s hard to pigeonhole, and even hard to resist.
