With spring upon us, it seems fitting to feature an artist on Made in Manitoba that's been inspired by nature and the outdoors. This weekend, it's a return visit from Karen Hammarstrand. Karen is looking ahead to the release of a new album in June called "Still Life", and in the weeks leading up to that, she's putting out singles from the new effort.

We'll be sharing some of those new songs on tonight's Made in Manitoba, and also dive into conversation about why now was the time for Karen to record a new album, and how "Still Life" was influenced by nature and the outdoor elements around all of us. We'll also ask her to reflect on coming to music relatively late in life, and the importance of always being open to trying something new.

It's Karen Hammarstrand on Made in Manitoba, and you can enjoy the program below.
