We are about to launch our cool new video series “An Empty Room”.  The series showcases some of Saskatchewan’s most promising artists, such as Megan Nash, Colter Wall, and Rosie & the Riveters.  Why look beyond our borders when Saskatchewan has so much to offer?  Exactly… that’s why we didn’t.

Twelve Saskatchewan acts have been hand picked to perform two songs each to an empty room in the Hague Gallery at Creative City Centre.  We will be posting one video a week for 24 weeks, starting this Monday with Megan Nash!  The audio from these live performances will be broadcast on CBC Radio’s Morning Edition with Stefani Langenagger.  (This week, the audio will be on CBC on Tuesday morning, due to the long weekend.)  Stay tuned for the first video or subscribe to our YouTube channel to make sure you don’t miss any of these great performances!

Thirst Youth Slam is Regina’s only youth-specific spoken word performance series… and we cannot wait to share with our community.  So, in anticipation of a full season of things to come… we are soft-launching NOW — with a full 2015/16 season launch in the fall. Celebrate with us!

A poetry slam is a dialogue between audience and performer. It is a competitive event wherein spoken word artists share their work in a high-spirited, fast-paced environment to an often uproarious crowd. We’ll also follow up the slam with an open mic, time permitting.

Behind The Songs is a monthly concert series that features Canadian songwriters in a songwriters circle format.  We take songwriters from various backgrounds, put them on stage, and encourage them to share with the audience their songs, the stories behind the songs, and a bit about their writing process.  This intimate format enables the audience to feel closer to the songwriters and to learn more about them and their creative process.  You don’t have to be a songwriter to enjoy this, as long as you enjoy music, this event is for you!

Each month features three or four songwriters on stage, and this month, we’ve got Keiffer Mclean, Colter Wall and Judith Morrissey.  Following their performance, there will be an open stage, where anyone is welcome to share one or two of their own songs.  Join us for this special night of music and story-telling, and in welcoming these three talented songwriters and performers to the stage… they will be on from 8:30pm to 9:45pm, with our open mic session to follow.  (Next month’s “Behind the Songs” is on June 20.)

Heritage Tours is an ongoing tour of various Heritage sites in Regina by musician Dagan Harding and others and is intended to engage crowds with art and music at weird, random, up-close and intimate Heritage sites throughout Regina.  By combining a fun evening of live music with beautiful Heritage sites, these shows create a new, more intimate way for people to experience heritage buildings and their history.  This April 11th show features performances by Kristina Hedlund, Riva Feeling Experience, Dagan Harding, and Tiny, with live images by Colby Richardson.

After a successful career with indie band Despistado (Jade Tree) in the early 2000s, and rock ensemble Geronimo in the late 2000s, Dagan Harding has spent the last four years honing his next project in Montreal, Que. Upon his recent return to the prairies he has brought with him a new batch of songs and a unique approach to writing, singing and playing — all influenced by his neighbour Leonard Cohen, bands The Smiths, The Sonics and Fugazi.
