The Manitoba Underground Opera will be joining us to talk (and sing) about music hall and operettas from the early 1900s, and Métis fiddler Melissa St. Goddard will talk about where the metis fiddle sound came from, the uniqueness of The Red River Jig in musical terms, and will play some examples for us. These mini talks will happen at the museum and guests can stay for one or stay for them all!
