The Wilderness of Manitoba is coming to a venue near you.

The Toronto-based folk band performs on Saturday, Feb. 8, at The Hideout, in Gasoline Alley south of Red Deer.

Since forming four year ago, The Wilderness of Manitoba has released three albums, two EPs, and toured Europe, Canada and the US. The group also had a song featured on the NBC series Parenthood.

It’s been an exciting few years — from getting a standing ovation at the End of the Road Festival in the U.K. to playing the Philadelphia Folk Festival and meeting Levon Helm.

The Wilderness of Manitoba kicked off 2014 by performing at the SXSW Festival in Austin, after being nominated for two 2013 Canadian Folk Music Awards — for Pushing the Boundaries and Vocal Group of the Year.

The four members — vocalist Will Whitwham on guitar, piano and ukulele; vocalist Amanda Balsys on violin, vocals and percussion; Wes McClintock on bass; and Sean Lancaric percussion — are recording their fourth album before embarking on a Western Canadian tour.

Fans who see the group at The Hideout are bound to hear some brand-new tunes, as well as older ones, like Echoes.

There’s a $10 cover for the 9 p.m. show. For more information, call 403-348-5309
