Bike Winnipeg presents Roger Roger with Heartbeat City
November 11, 2017 @ 07:15 - 21:00$15.00
On Saturday, November 11th, Winnipeg folk/roots duo Roger Roger will share their unique combination of exquisite storytelling and shameless sibling harmonies in a fundraising concert supporting Bike Winnipeg. Proceeds from the performance go to Bike Winnipeg to help advance our ongoing advocacy efforts to provide people on bikes with safe, comfortable and convenient ways to get around our city. Indie-folk-rock band Heartbeat City get the night rolling with their blend of deeply personal lyrics and infectious melodies.
In addition to being treated to two of Winnipeg’s premier musical artists, concert goers will also have the opportunity to learn about and comment on Bike Winnipeg’s ongoing advocacy work, including:
- Our continuing efforts to accelerate development of a Downtown Protected Bike Lanes Network;
- Our work ensuring inclusion of protected bike lanes in the Arlington Street Bridge replacement project and our ongoing efforts to see those protected bike lanes extended from Portage to Inkster;
- And much, much more!
Roger Roger is a sibling folk/roots group from Winnipeg, Canada. Twins Lucas and Madeleine Roger are both singer-songwriters who have joined forces, each playing guitar and shamelessly harmonizing all over each others’ songs. The offspring of producer/engineer/musician Lloyd Peterson, the twins have a knack for songwriting that must have something to do with growing up in a recording studio. At times melodic and quirky, lusty and rambunctious, soft and honest, Roger Roger is easily remembered for the blend of their vocals, their genuine vibe, and compelling storytelling. As a special treat for us, Roger Roger will be performing with a full band for this show!
“Two superbly talented and highly original singer-songwriters.” – Greg Leskiw (The Guess Who)
“World-class music.” – The Winnipeg Free Press
Born in ashes under the banners of authenticity and optimism, supporting act Heartbeat City’s indie-folk-rock tunes are a perfect showcase for band leader Ian La Rue’s deeply personal lyrics and infectious melodies.
