Home Routes Concert Series Announced
The Mann Art Gallery is pleased to announce that we will be carrying on the tradition of the Home Routes 'House' concerts during the 2014 - 15 season with six award winning musicians from across the country as well as the United States.

The concert schedule is currently being drafted by the Home Routes crew and will be available later on in the summer.

Home Routes operates 14 house concert touring circuits across Canada, from YT to PE. House concerts are a North American tradition that developed within the folk-roots milieu to introduce artists to wider audiences. During the 1950’s “folk boom” a significant number of young people began to choose “folk singing” as their profession. With the number of talented performers by far exceeding the number of places to play, house concerts remain a significant part of the music scene.

Home Routes brings small communities professional artists of exceptional talent who would otherwise perform only in theatres, concert halls and folk festivals in urban markets. With almost no physical separation between artist and audience, a house concert is an intimate experience for everyone. Casual, comfortable and unpretentious, house concerts are fun and very often, inspirational events that create lasting memories.

Annual General Meeting
The Mann Art Gallery will be holding our 2015 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 at 7:00pm in accordance with Saskatchewan's Not For Profit Act (1995).
