This February will mark the first time a Home Routes host will tour one of the circuits. Kayla Luky of Grandview, MB has been hosting for three seasons now since she bought her home in 2009. She sent us an application as a performer last year and we loved what we heard.
If you live in any of these Alberta communities,
you can check out Kayla too and see what we mean!

Kayla writes: "As of June 2009 I became a home-owner in the community of Grandview, MB, population about 1000. My home is an old character home, 3 bedrooms, over 1400 square feet. So there's lots of room for everyone! (I'm also Ukrainian, so you can imagine there's no shortage of food.) The main floor has held 50 spectators comfortably (some were eating/milling around) but easily 40 were seated. I became the Recreation Programmer in my town, so I thought if you guys needed more hosts, the two would go hand in hand. Plus I only know so many people out of town, and Home Routes gives us an opportunity to get musicians in that we may have never had otherwise!"
If you'd like a sample of her music, you can check out her website. We think she's great. http://kaylaluky.ca/
This Saturday, January 19th, Kayla will be performing as part of the Occupy Winter movement at the Wasagaming Kitchenette, behind the Visitor Centre, and has written a song about what winter means for Canadians and why support is needed for our National Park recreational programs in our fourth season.
"To answer that question, living in rural Manitoba between two fantastic mountain ranges has meant a lot of time spent in the outdoors, especially through our longest season of the year.
Canada is known for its long, cold winters, and given our unique location, this song is a small contribution to add to the celebration and sense of community that Winter brings to this area.
Short and sweet - I guess that's all I have to say about that.
