OLD MARKET SQUARE
Don’t let their tongue-in-cheek name fool you, rather let their raucous live performance be a testament to their unique blend of country, dixieland, and Manitoba roots music. Since forming in Winnipeg in 2004, the F-Holes have shared the stage with the likes of Gord Downie, Johnny Winter, Martha Wainwright, Fred Eaglesmith and Edgar Winter. They’ve performed over 250 shows from BC to Nova Scotia, including gigs at the Kitchener Blues Festival and the Trout Forest Music Festival. Their unmistakable vintage-inspired sound and zeal for live performance has garnered them acclaim from an array of critics and audiences alike. Their most recent album is 2012’s Red Hot.
