Big Fun Fest 2018: Free Afternoon at Forth

15:00 - 18:30

 Facebook event page
171 McDermot Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 0S1
Big Fun Festival is proud to present:

​Gimli-born singer-songwriter Skye Callow presents Ciel: bedroom-folk that fills the room with smoke and deliciously romanticizes the dark. It's like baby-pink wet cement that you just want to squish your face into.

​Trenton Burton
​With a voice as rich as butter, Trenton Burton blends electronic ambience with honest bedroomer lyrics. Still rooted in the idea of folk and rock stylings, he twists the pages into his own version of elegant pop music.

Family Injera (Edmonton, AB)
​Mustafa Rafiq is Family Injera — tending to forgotten family roots through sound. Blending traditional guitar style with spiritual field recordings cloaked in abrasive ambient noise, meditative psychedelia is born.

​Respectfulchild (敬兒) (Saskatoon, SK)
​The solo instrumental project of Gan, who hails from Saskatoon on Treaty 6 Territory, builds experimental ambient soundscapes through slow progressions of meticulous improvisation. With a sound that has been likened to Brian Eno, Nils Frahm, and Owen Pallett, the lone presence of respectfulchild is able to bring quiet to even the noisiest of rooms.
