Show Notes

For a decade straight, Winnipeg's Dirty Catfish Brass Band has been entertaining audiences and moving dancefloors.

I sat down with four members to talk about their upcoming record, the challenges and logistics of being an eight-piece band during the pandemic, determining their set lists for their radically different types of shows (even funerals!) and more.
