The Wilderness of Manitoba
Listen to Echoes
In its four year existence, Toronto-based the Wilderness of Manitoba has released three albums, two EPs and toured the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada and the US. One critic described them as blending the sounds of “indie champions like the Civil Wars and Band of Horses with the early 70’s magic of Neil Young’s Harvest era”. Highlights range from their UK live debut at the End of the Road Festival where they received a standing ovation to playing the Philadelphia Folk Festival and meeting Levon Helm to performing the WOMAD festival in the UK with artists like Robert Plant. This year, they were nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards; one for the Pushing the Boundaries Award and one for Vocal Group of the Year.
