Hosted by the Regina Folk Festival, Winterruption is your chance to beat the winter blues! Taking place over five nights from January 23 to 27, Winterruption is a series of concerts designed to breathe warmth into the snowy fields of a prairie winter!


Get ready for the power of the spoken word! Kicking off Winterruption on January 23 is a night of slam poetry at Artesian. Headlining is Shane Koyczan, one of the few people in the world who could credibly be called a rockstar poet! Koyczan is a world slam champion and his words have graced the stage of the opening Olympics ceremony in Vancouver in 2010, as well as a TED Talk! He combines humour with deep emotion, creating a rollercoaster ride of beautiful poetry. If you’ve never seen Koyczan, you must.


A Toronto-based singer-songwriter, Royal Wood combines folk influences with a truly 21st Century sound, penning delicate pop masterpieces that conjure deep feelings and make you want to sing along. He’s been a favourite of the folk festival circuit for years now, and on the 24th you’ll find out why at Artesian!


An incredible talent, Terra Lightfoot is a singer-songwriter with incredible range – both vocally, and in the styles of songs she sings! An old soul, Lightfoot’s songs have incredible wisdom and depth of feeling. She’ll be joined on the 25th at The Exchange by Ndidi O and Ellen Froese. Don’t miss it!


Begonia is led by Winnipeg-based artist Alexa Dirks, whose big, bold voice is the perfect pair for the incredible modern soul sound she has harnessed! Begonia has wow-ed crowds all over the world by making them get up and dance. She’ll be at The Revival Music Room on January 26!


If you know anything about Canadian music then Hawksley Workman needs no introduction. He’ll be at The Exchange January 27 playing his unique brand on intelligent indie pop with fabulous flair!

Wow! All these incredible performers and we haven’t even mentioned the supporting acts! That’s a lot of great music in a short span of time. If you’re looking for a break from the winter humdrum you need Winterruption in your life. Make the most of it by staying at the Days Inn Regina Hotel! With our indoor pool and waterslide, you won’t even notice that it’s winter outside!
