Q Live in Regina

Today’s special Juno episode of CBC’s Q was recorded live at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina last night.  Host Jian Ghomeshi’s guests included locals Sandra Butel and Jayden Pfeifer, Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee k.d. lang, Juno winner Tom Cochrane, Dragonette, Bahamas and Corb Lund, Juno Cup hockey rivals, Jim Cuddy and Gary Roberts. Local photographer Chris Graham (me!) was in attendance and captured photos of the show, which can now be streamed HERE.

  1. I could not believe what I was hearing from Butel & Pfeifer about not leaving and there finally being more than one thing to do each night. Artists and curators in Saskatchewan began ‘not to leave’ in 1970, over 40 years ago. And within a decade decisions had to be made about what to choose most nights.

    They seem clueless about the Regina arts scene that has captured national attention since 1961.

  2. W. Morgan – I think we could cut these two some slack. They are both extremely engaged and informed figures in the creative community. It was a pretty quick interview with a very specific focus.

    A lot of us know that Regina has had an amazing art scene since the 1960s and that people have stuck around – that is precisely why the scene is still great! But many of us have also seen a lot of young artists and creative people leave over the last 15 years. I know many who have left and have also seen the challenges that those who have remained have faced in the pursuit of continuing to build our local culture. I can’t speak to what the nightly entertainment situation was like 40 years ago, but I do know that 15 years ago my friends and I were often looking for things to do that didn’t require getting into a bar… now, it’s hard to find time to do it all.

    I don’t see how it’s a bad thing to celebrate the recent growth of our creative community and keep a positive light on the increase in active young artists coming back to our cities, particularly with the hardship the film industry has been facing.
