Assiniboine River Armada

Filmmaker: John Scott

Every summer for the past 4 years, Dave Fort (founding member of TWIN) and other musicians have paddled the Assiniboine from Brandon to Winnipeg, playing concerts at various locations along the way. Stops include Spruce Woods Provincial Park, Fairholme Colony, Dakota Tipi 1st Nation, and Portage la Prairie. They end the trip by playing one final venue in Winnipeg. Besides paddling the Assiniboine, Dave has completed similar canoe concert tours on the Mississippi River from Bemidji, MN to La Cross Wisconsin 2x; the LA River in Los Angeles and the Sacramento River in northern California. Beside playing their own original music, Dave and the others also work to educate people they meet along the way about the state of these rivers from ecological and recreational perspectives. Dave and his partner Brooklyn are confirmed, with dates for the trip to be determined.
