VIDEO: Casati closes out Music in the Forest series with rousing performance

Winnipeg based folk trio brings their style of indie folk music to the amphitheatre of Sir Winston Churchill Park on Saturday.

LAC LA BICHE - It’s been a great summer for the Music in the Forest concert series, which began in June and concluded for the season on Aug. 26 with a rousing performance by the Winnipeg – based indie folk trio Casati.

A near capacity crowd gathered inside the amphitheatre at Sir Winston Churchill Provincial Park for the concert. Casati, which consists of bassist and background vocalist Quintin Bart, lead singer and ukulele player Grace Hrabi, and guitarist and singer Jesse Popeski, entertained their audience with songs filled with insightful and funny lyrics, most of which were inspired by the members’ various life experiences.

One of these events took place a few years ago when the band, whose music has been described as ‘folk music with an open mind’, embarked on a roots tour, playing small venues throughout parts of rural Alberta, and staying at farms along the way. This tour became the muse for the song ‘Country Roses,’ which the trio played during the show to the merriment of the fans in attendance.

It's been a busy summer for Casati, who has been playing gigs while working on a new album.
