New Night! Folk Fest Thursdays at The Good Will

New Night! Folk Fest Thursdays at The Good Will

We are excited to announce a new night of music and good times at The Good Will - Folk Fest Thursdays with Scott Nolan & Friends.

Folk Fest Thursdays will happen every second and fourth Thursday of the month. The nights will be lead by Winnipeg folk icon, Scott Nolan and an ever-rotating wheel of great musicians and friends on stage. The big kick-off show will happen on January 22 with Joanna Miller, Damon Mitchell, Ashley Au and Aisha Belle.

Artist's Statement from Scott Nolan

I've been a travelling songwriter over the last fifteen years and my band has been Joanna Miller on drums and accompaniment vocals. Folk Fest Thursdays will allow me to work with a larger ensemble. I have Damon Mitchell (The New Meanies/Nathan) – a long time friend, band mate, and gifted musician as well as a couple of my favourite up and comers making a name for themselves. Ashley Au on acoustic and electric bass and Aisha Belle on violin and harmony vocals. I look forward to inviting guests to sit in and front the group and with any luck it will catch on. My songwriting career began in earnest, after hours at the Blue Note Café and it depended greatly on the generosity of many Winnipeg musicians young and old. At Folk Fest Thursdays, we'll see that tradition continue.
