A Rebel Named Riel

Acoustic Folk Band based out of Winnipeg Manitoba. We have shared the stage with Juno Award Winning artists and played coffee shops to arenas across the country

Local Metis folk singer Riel – formerly known as A Rebel Named Riel – is on the show to talk all about his new solo persona, more emotional songwriting, upcoming new music, and much more!

We also touch on his rewarding (musical) day job, as well as Manitoba’s Indigenous music scene!

Because his new stuff is coming out imminently, but isn’t quite ready yet, we didn’t include any of the songs on the episode, which means it’s a bit shorter than usual, but it’s a really fun chat – and the songs are worth the wait, based on the previews he shared with me.

This episode brought to you by the Gumshoe Strut’s new Heartbeat EP from Saskatoon Folk Rap Records!

Check out our pals at Devine Shirt Company for your merch needs, and congratulations to the Park Theatre on its 15th anniversary!

Join us at the third annual Manitoba Podcast Festival, which takes place entirely online, Sept. 26-27!
