“The 2020 season of Music ’N’ Mavens will channel a 60s and 70s vibe with tributes to the Beatles, Aretha Franklin, and the Mamas and Papas.  But we will still cover all the genres! Roots, classical, Latin, folk – you name it! Join us for another season of stimulating speakers and the best music Winnipeg has to offer,” says Karla Berbrayer, Founding Producer, Music ’N’ Mavens.
