Summer Museum Exhibit Showcases Manitoba’s Musical Heritage

June 14, 2010 5:56 AM | Entertainment

A new summer exhibit at the Manitoba Museum will have people shakin’ all over.

The museum, in partnership with Manitoba Music Experience, is presenting “Shakin’ All Over,” an interactive and unique exhibit about Manitoba’s rich musical heritage.

The exhibit will be a multi-media celebration of the many facets/genres of music in Manitoba over time. Each genre will have unique pods designed by the Winnipeg-based design firm of Hilderman Thomas Frank Cram. Some of the highlights include the jacket given to Fred Turner for guest-starring in an episode of The Simpsons; Juno awards won by Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Al Simmons’ one-man band and human jukebox, Daniel Lavoie’s piano, and a perfectly restored Rockola jukebox.

Shakin’ All Over will run from June 1 to September 6 at the museum, but will launch Sunday, June 27 at the Red River Exhibition with a special night celebrating some great Manitoba music.
