Friday, Feb 21, 2020 at 1:22pm

McNally Robinson Booksellers is thrilled to officially join the Winnipeg Folk Fest family with our new store at the festival: Music, Merch, and More by McNally Robinson Booksellers.

We're proud to partner with the renowned festival by offering artist and festival merchandise along with a selection of music, books, toys, games, and other items that will complement your Folk Fest experience. We'll be filling a tent that's more than twice the size of our shop at The Forks, so we'll have plenty of items to browse! And as a bonus, your Reader Reward Card will apply like it does in the bookstore, meaning you can enjoy a 10% discount on most items in the tent.

More details on our involvement are to come, so check back on this page soon or follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay up-to-date.

The Winnipeg Folk Fest runs from July 9 to 12, 2020. For more information on the festival and to purchase tickets, please visit their website.

Our Sights & Sounds: Sept. & Oct. 2017

Saturday, Aug 26, 2017 at 10:47am

Music CDs & Records

Liona Boyd. No Remedy for Love. CD $14.99. The winner of five Juno Awards and known the world over as “The First Lady of the Guitar,” Boyd has released twenty-eight albums, spanning a wide range of styles. The central theme of her new album is love in its many incarnations, from love for the planet and animals to romantic love and love for the place she now calls home. No Remedy for Love was inspired by the melodic folk, pop and classical music she grew up with and embraces a variety of influences across its seventeen tracks. (Universal. August)

Vijay Iyer Sextet. Far From Over. CD $16.99. His fifth release for ECM since 2014 finds the keyboardist-composer and his dynamic sextet reaching a new peak. Furthering an artistry that led The Guardian to call Iyer "one of the world's most inventive new-generation jazz pianists" Far From Over features a wealth of jazz history even as it pushes boldly forward.The music ranges from the thrillingly explosive to the cathartically elegiac, with melodic hooks, entrancing atmosphere, rhythmic muscle and an elemental spirit all part of the allure. (Universal. August)

Record Store Day 2016

Thursday, Mar 10, 2016 at 4:27pm

This year, Record Store Day falls on Saturday, April 16th.

And yes, McNally Robinson will be taking part in the festivities. Just like in years past, we will be featuring dozens of special LPs that are available exclusively at independent RSD retailers like us and only on RSD.

Stock will be limited for most titles, so we suggest you join us early. Depending on the crowd, we may limit your selection just so that others can have a chance to pick up some unique albums.

If you're curious about which titles we're expecting, feel free to give us a call and ask for our Music staff (Winnipeg 204-475-0483, Saskatoon 306-955-3599). We'll point out that we don't always receive every RSD album that we expect, but we can let you know what we've ordered.
