Whoop It Up...With UMFM
August 11, 2022: Episode 6: JC Campbell
On Episode 6, Broose is joined soulful Indigenous bluesman JC Campbell!
Growing up with a father who sang the blues and a mother who loved classic soul and country, it seemed as if JC Campbell was predestined for a life of making music. With three albums now under his belt, the Winnipeg, Manitoba-born Campbell has hit his stride with his new release, Lately, a seven-song collection that brings together all of his influences, while offering powerful messages of hope in dark times. As an Indigenous artist, Campbell has a unique perspective on the world, expressed through a soulful voice that would have been right at home in Memphis or Muscle Shoals in the 1960s.
Don’t miss JC as he takes the stage for a performance at this year’s Whoop & Hollar Folk Festival in beautiful Portage La Prairie — Saturday, August 27th at 12PM.
