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.
