Roll up for the 6th annual tour season of the Magical Musical History Tour! Join local music historian and author John Einarson as he guides you through the streets of Winnipeg on a very unique one-of-a-kind tour of the city’s illustrious rock ‘n’ roll history.
See the house where Neil Young lived and began his song writing career, where he made his first recordings and played his first live performances; see the house where Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman of The Guess Who wrote These Eyes, No Time, and others, as well as where Burton Cummings composed Share The Land, Rain Dance, and more. You'll also see the school where Neil Young sat on the steps and “dreamed of being a star”; where Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) was first conceived; the house Terry ‘Seasons in the Sun’ Jack grew up in; the spot where Neil Young met Joni Mitchell; plus much, much more.
The tour features a video of vintage photos and music as well as John’s colourful stories and points of interest. In the 1960’s Winnipeg was the rock ‘n’ roll capital of Canada.
See and hear why on this exciting tour.
