Times Change(d) throws anniversary bash; Fellows brings Burning Daylight to WECC
Hey there, time traveller!

The motto of Times Change(d) High and Lonesome Club is: “We got a lotta livin’ to do!”
Indeed we do — and denizens of the hole-in-the-wall honky tonk will tell you they’ve done plenty of living for many a year at the corner of St. Mary Avenue and Main Street.
This weekend marks the 14th anniversary of the day John Scoles, Times’ self-described “president and janitor,” took over the club — which was already well-known as home of the city’s Sunday night blues jam — and turned it into the best little roadhouse on the prairie.
To celebrate, Scoles and the club are doing what they do best — throwing a party.
On Fri., Jan. 16, the tiny stage backing onto Main Street will host a Roger Miller tribute show featuring Matt Magura (Magnificent Sevens), Josey Krahn, JD Ormond (Ultra Mega), Eric Lemoine and Evan Friesen (Little Miss Higgins and the Winnipeg Five), plus an opening set by Scott Nolan.
The following night will be a Johnny Cash tribute with Andrew Neville, Grant Siemens (Corb Lund, Del Barber), Joanna Miller and Scoles (yes, the president and janitor also plays bass). The Osmond-Davis Band will open.
Get there early. The place is small and it will be heaving with people by 11, easy.

Christine Fellows has been enchanting and intriguing musical audiences for more than 20 years, first with the Winnipeg band Helen, then with Keri McTighe (now Latimer) in Special Fancy and, finally, as a solo singer/songwriter and multi-media performer.
Her sixth solo offering, Burning Daylight, released last fall, is best described as a ‘project’ rather than an album, as it’s comprised as a collection of songs and a book of poetry, published by ARP Books and illustrated with wonderful collages by visual artist Alicia Smith.
Fellows launched Burning Daylight with a small reception at McNally Robinson Booksellers last fall, but The C Fellows Trio show on Fri., Jan. 16 at the West End Cultural Centre will be her first full performance of these songs in Winnipeg. She’ll be accompanied onstage by Alex McMaster and Leanne Zacharias.
Singer/songwriter Shotgun Jimmie (a.k.a. Jim Kilpatrick, formerly of Shotgun & Jaybird) will open. Doors open at 7:15, showtime is 8 p.m., sharp.
