For nature-lovers, gardeners or local art history buffs, we’ve got vintage limited-edition wood engraving prints, created by Henry Eric Bergman (1893-1958) and generously donated to us by this accomplished artist’s descendants.
Featuring plants found within Lake Winnipeg’s watershed, these prints are a great addition to any home or cottage. Each costs $80 and comes mounted on an 8 x 10, acid-free, archival mat – all that’s missing is the frame. Even better – 100% of proceeds...
Update: Tickets for our Love, Lake Winnipeg raffle are on sale now! Only $5 each (or three for $10), they offer another way to support LWF - and a chance to win amazing prizes. We'll also be selling tickets at our Jan. 14 benefit show. The draw will be that night but you don't have to be at the concert to win. Good luck!
Almost 50 years after they were first recorded to vinyl, folk songs documenting life on Lake Winnipeg are being given new life – and new purpose.

Classic Lake Winnipeg folk songs get a musical makeover
We’re excited to announce a creative new fundraiser for LWF!
Love, Lake Winnipeg: A tribute to the songs of Sol Sigurdson is a collaborative project featuring select tracks from Riverton singer-songwriter Sol Sigurdson’s 1970 cult classic, The Lake Winnipeg Fisherman, reimagined by contemporary Manitoba musicians DJ Co-op, Mise en Scene, Scott Nolan and John K. Samson, and Jess Reimer.
Produced by John K. Samson, former frontman of acclaimed Winnipeg band The Weakerthans, this limited-edition four-song EP will be released on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2016, at an exclusive benefit concert in Winnipeg at the West End Cultural Centre (WECC). As an expression of our thanks – and in celebration of LWF’s 10-year anniversary – all audience members in attendance will receive free copies!
