Coeur de Pirate is Playing Folk Fest!

Coeur de Pirate is Playing Folk Fest!

We are thrilled to share with you the first artist we’re announcing as part of our 2016 lineup - Coeur de pirate!

This past weekend's Coeur de pirate concert at the Centre culturel franco-manitobain sold out just hours after tickets went on sale in November and many fans were left wishing to get in the door. We are thrilled to be able to give Winnipeggers another opportunity to see the award-winning artist on stage at Birds Hill Provincial Park in July.

"We discovered that Coeur de pirate had a huge following here in the city when her February show was announced," said Winnipeg Folk Festival Artistic Director, Chris Frayer. "Giving festival fans what they want by booking the artists they love and allowing others to discover their new favourites is what we do best. Having an amazing young artist like Coeur de pirate play our festival will satisfy everyone enjoying the show on the Main Stage field."

Coeur de pirate is Québécois singer-songwriter Béatrice Martin and a superstar in the French community. Her latest album Roses came out in August 2015 and features stunning tracks in both English and French. The album propelled her up the pop and alternative charts and became one of the biggest Canadian releases of the year. 

The full 2016 Winnipeg Folk Fest performer lineup will be announced March 10 and tickets will go on sale March 11. Day schedules will be announced prior to July.
