concert 1: Ollabelle, recorded at The West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg, MB
Ollabelle is a New York-based band that celebrates American roots music. It started out as a side project for the musicians, but became a bona fide group named in honour of country singer and songwriter Ola Belle Reed. The repertoire is a mix of traditional songs along with originals, which have a timeless sound to them. Singer Amy Helm comes to the music honestly. Her father is Levon Helm of the Band and the rest of Ollabelle includes singing instrumentalists. This concert was recorded as part of the 2011 TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival.

concert 1: Flatlander Blues featuring Big Dave McLean, Suzie Vinnick and Shaun Verreault, recorded at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg
The blues know no boundaries. No matter where you live and what you do, it's just part of the human condition. And when it comes to expressing those feelings through music, two artists from the prairies do it very well: Suzie Vinnick and Big Dave McLean. Big Dave, the veteran of the two, is a lifelong Winnipegger, while Suzie is originally from Saskatoon and now based in Toronto. Both have received many awards and accolades over the years and have fans around the world. Flatlander Blues was an event designed to allow these two artists to collaborate on each other's material, play some blues standards and have some fun with the musical give and take. They also added guitar slinger Shaun Verreault to the mix. He's originally from Saskatoon and is a long time member of the band Wide Mouth Mason, and also manages a successful solo career. The band also included a Winnipeg-based rhythm section, featuring Gilles Fournier on bass and Daniel Roa on drums.
