Regina Folk Festival Presents: Winterruption 2020 Little Miss Higgins with Ellen Forese ------------ LITTLE MISS HIGGINS From the Great Northern Plains of Western Canada, Little Miss Higgins struts and serenades her way, guitar in hand, lips blazoned red, onto any stage. As if she just drove in off the back-road of another time with gravel dust and a sunset trailing behind her, this pocket-sized powerhouse plays music brewed up in old-time country blues sprinkled with a little jazz and maybe a hint of folk. Music entered her life early. “When I was about four my dad bought this old piano at a local bar,” she recalls. “It was a mini grand piano. He brought it home and told me it was mine. I carved my name in the side and started taking piano lessons.” Growing up playing piano, Higgins now uses guitar and voice as her main instruments. Her stage name, Little Miss Higgins suits the undeniably inflammatory mix of her blues and country music repertoire but the moniker was largely accidental. “When I moved to Saskatchewan in 2002 I started hanging out with this Greek guy,” she recalls “He started calling me Little Miss Higgins so I used it on poster for a gig I was doing and it just stuck.” Get ready to be charmed! ----------- ELLEN FROESE Hailing from a dairy farm in the heart of Saskatchewan, young folk singer Ellen Froese is swiftly making her presence known in the Canadian music scene. As a folk artist performing both solo and with her backing band, The Hot Toddies, as well as being a past member of bluegrass/folk group In With The Old, Froese has been balancing multiple projects for the last few years. Whether performing a folk traditional, a rock 'n' roll classic, or the songs she writes, Froese does it with an air of authenticity – all tempered with a healthy dose of humour and self-deprecation. Ellen Froese is the real deal. ------------ Bar @ 7:00 Doors @ 7:30, Show @ 8:00 Advance Tickets $22, Door Tickets $30 This show will offer a mix of seats and standing room. ------------ WE WILL RETURN TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED WINTER IN JUST A MOMENT ------------ Win-ter-rup-tion /?win(t)?r’r?pSH(?)n/ 1. 45+ artists, 13 groups, 5 super cool days, 6 musical shows, 2 venues 2. stop the continuous progress of the coldest season of the year 3. a frosty good time In 2020, the magical beast that is Winterruption turns 5!

Sunday, January 26, 2020 | 7:30PM Lynn Harrison Advance $20.00 / Door $25.00 * Lynn Harrison makes a triumphant return to Hugh’s Room for the release of Something More, her sixth solo album. Lynn’s latest recording is powerful, poetic, and irresistibly listenable. As singer-songwriter Allan Fraser says, Lynn writes and performs songs of “empathy and intelligence… that engage on multiple levels simultaneously.” Something More was produced by acclaimed guitarist, and singer-songwriter in his own right, Noah Zacharin, who joins Lynn for a concert that promises to be warm, intimate, and moving. They’re joined by bass player and multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire David Woodhead, who has frequently, and brilliantly, collaborated with Lynn for several years. Concertgoers can expect to hear all of the new songs from Something More, along with many additional and beloved favourites from Lynn’s extensive catalogue. One listener aptly describes Lynn’s music as “a brightly ringing sound-bite in an uncertain world.” With the release of Something More, she interrupts, even disrupts, the currently chaotic world, to bring us even more of her unique and timeless inspiration, hope, courage, and joy. website: http://www.lynoleum.com/home/ youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZP6_26lK44 * Advertised pricing excludes taxes and ticketing feesFind out more »
