Once again this year, we are excited to bring you the Home Routes concert series! Six concerts featuring musicians from across Canada and beyond! See below for a schedule and links to all of the artists’ websites. or visit the Home Routes website below!
Being that some of the shows are on weeknights, they will be starting earlier, at 7:30pm instead of 8:00. Doors open at 7:00. As always we will have a cash bar and desserts!
Tickets are $20 in advance or at the door.

[Winnipeg, March 20, 2020] Home Routes/ Chemin Chez Nous is keeping the music alive by presenting our Season 13 Artists’ concerts online, via Facebook live and YouTube, in place of the previously scheduled tours. Having to cancel the balance of our Season 13 tours due to COVID-19 left our artists, hosts and patrons wondering what we could do to continue to support and entertain, so we decided to bring the artists digitally to our patrons and to an even larger audience, instead of canceling the shows.
“To support artists and bring fresh entertainment to folks during this time was an obvious win/win, and doing live streaming concerts has been something we have been talking about for a while, so we decided that this was the perfect time to launch it,” says Artistic Director Tim Osmond. “Rick Fines was one of our pioneering artists in our very first season in 2007, so it’s only fitting that he kick off our online version too!”
Instead of touring from house to house, we will present an artist nightly on Home Routes / Chemin Chez Nous Facebook page - presenting a National Folk Festival online. Audiences will be treated to performers who were previously booked by Home Routes to tour rural and urban areas of Canada, and to date we have confirmed the schedule until Apr 1st. Additional programming is being confirmed to continue these shows beyond the Apr 1 date, and will be announced as schedules are finalized. The schedule of performers is below, all shows start at 8pm CT, and run for 30 minutes.So gather your family, your pizza, your storm chips and get ready to enjoy an evening of Canadian Folk music and stories, from our home, to yours.
For financial support in these difficult times, our performers will be sharing a ‘tip jar” during their live concert, so viewers can “pay what they want.” By adding this virtual tip jar it will be easy for anyone to support.
