Whoop It Up...With UMFM

On our 11th and final episode, Broose is joined by up and com­ing Portage singer-song­writer Rhea Goertzen!

Rhea Goertzen, return­ing to the Whoop & Hol­lar stage, is an emerg­ing, young singer-song­writer from Portage la Prairie, Man­i­to­ba. Rhea, along with her father Ed Goertzen, have been gain­ing a lot of atten­tion in the Man­i­to­ba music scene as they cap­ture audi­ences with their unique acoustic style. 

Recent­ly, they have opened for Juno Award win­ner George Canyon and Rhea claimed 1st place in the Man­i­to­ba Coun­try Voice com­pe­ti­tion. While per­form­ing at a vari­ety of venues and fes­ti­vals such as Dauphin’s Coun­tryfest, they have wowed the crit­ics with their poet­ic blend of clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary. There is noth­ing like the obvi­ous con­nec­tion and har­mo­ny that is found when fam­i­ly makes music together. 

Don’t miss Rhea Goertzen as part of this year’s Whoop & Hol­lar Folk Fes­ti­val in beau­ti­ful Portage La Prairie on Sat­ur­day, August 26th as she per­forms 3 shows at the Red Barn/​Harlequin Hang­out stage — at 1, 2:15 and 3:30PM!
