A Tribe Called Red will hit Union Sound Hall on Feb. 16, 2014.

THE Winnipeg Folk Festival is bringing a 2013 festival favourite back to the city in the new year.

A Tribe Called Red will hit Union Sound Hall on Feb. 16, 2014. Tickets are $20 plus fees in advance and go on sale Friday, Nov. 22 at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store and through Ticketmaster.

Since exploding onto the music scene in 2010, the Ottawa-based group -- which includes two-time Canadian DMC Champion DJ Shub, DJ NDN and DJ Bear Witness -- has been mixing traditional powwow vocals and drumming with electronic music for an incendiary live show that has earned it fans coast to coast. The trio's second full-length album, Nation II Nation, was shortlisted for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize.

The Winnipeg Folk Festival is also presenting the much buzzed-about Australian indie folk act Boy & Bear on April 1 at the Park Theatre. Tickets are $17 plus fees in advance and go on sale Friday, Nov. 22 at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store and through Ticketmaster.

Boy & Bear is touring in support of its latest, Harlequin Dream, which has already been certified gold in Australia. The band is up for three 2013 Australian Recording Industry Association Awards, including Best Group, Best Rock Album And Producer Of The Year, which will be handed out on Dec. 1.
