Countryfest Is Coming!
Did you know we're 117 Days until Dauphin's Countryfest!? It'll be a great line-up of talent including The Band Perry, Tim Hicks, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Rascal Flatts, and oh yeah some artist named Blake Shelton! There's also a great list of other artists who will be performing over the 4 days.
Now I know tickets are sold out, which is sad news for anyone wanting to go to Canada's longest running country show. However here at CFRY we won't let that stand as we'll be giving away tickets this spring leading up to June 26th. Haven't completely figured out how the contest will work just yet, but stay tuned in to find out!
Curious of all things Countryfest? Check out the full line-up and what they have planned for their 25th Anniversary HERE!
Meanwhile check out this gallery from last year!
Famous Lady "A's"
It's one week to go until Lady Antebellum brings their "A" game to the MTS Centre and we just got handed some last minute tickets for you to win! Be listening to CFRY for your cue to call and be ready to play famous Lady “A's”. How it works is we'll give you hints on a famous woman who's first or last name starts with the letter A.
If you guess correctly you'll be an instant winner. You'll then be entered into our grand prize draw set for Monday during the CFRY Morning Show. The odds are a bit better this week as well since we have 2 pairs to give away. So be listening for your chance to qualify!
Only a few tickets remains for the Lady Antebellum concert set for Wednesday March 5th at the MTS Centre. Get them before they're gone HERE!
Eriksdale Talent Show
10 year old Koralee Foster sings Rolling In The Deep
A 10 year old singer from Winnipeg was a double winner at last night's CFRY Radio Amateur Talent Show in Eriksdale.
Koralee Foster was named the CFRY Most Promising Performer, and also received a $100.00 cheque as the show's judges' pick for top talent. Maija Kaartinen got $75.00, while Lindsey Imlah took home $50.00.
Their efforts were part of the reason the show netted $12,730.00 to be used to replace the floor in the Eriksdale Community Club's east wing.

Jeanette Ryden brought in the most pledges, with $1570.00, but declined the $100.00 that went with that. Instead, the cheque was given to the Ericksdale School Choir, who raised $1540.00. $75.00 went to Nolan Smith for his total of $1015.00. Maija Kaartinen raised $880.00, and received $50.00.
Cheques can be sent to the Eriksdale Community Club, PO Box 320, Eriksdale, R0C 0W0. They can also be dropped off at Noventis Credit Union in Eriksdale, no later than March 7.
