Helping Shingoose

A couple of months back, Curtis 'Shingoose' Jonnie, native Canadian music pioneer, had a massive stroke.

And come they will. Eagle & Hawk, Ray St. Germain, Mark Nabess, Dustin Harder, Jesse Green of Bruthers of Different Muthers and Don Amero have all signed up to play the fundraiser on May 26 at Winnipeg’s Pyramid Cabaret.

“Shingoose is a musical elder in our music community and it’s always been my belief to acknowledge those folks who have helped blaze the trail,” says Vince Fontaine, co-founder of the multi-award winning group Eagle & Hawk.
