Whoop It Up...With UMFM

On episode 3, Broose is joined by Fes­ti­val Co-Founders Lin­da Omichin­s­ki (Pres­i­dent) and Josh Wright (Vice-Pres­i­dent / Artis­tic Direc­tor)!

Whoop & Hol­lar Folk Fes­ti­val is an award-win­ning, non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion and annu­al fes­ti­val in Portage la Prairie, Man­i­to­ba that cre­ates and cel­e­brates com­mu­ni­ty through music, art, and nature.

By means of its year-round pro­gram­ming, Whoop & Hol­lar is focused on pro­mot­ing, sup­port­ing, and expand­ing the unique iden­ti­ty of its local arts and cul­ture scene. The grass­roots orga­ni­za­tion is 100% vol­un­teer-dri­ven.

The fes­ti­val was recent­ly named the Rur­al Munic­i­pal­i­ty of Portage la Prairie’s sig­na­ture event for 2019, and aims to revive the spir­it of the music and dance scene that exist­ed in the his­toric Hoop & Holler Dis­trict (hence the name), near­ly a cen­tu­ry ago.
