On this weekend's edition of Made in Manitoba, a return visit of sorts, from Madeleine Roger! Madeleine makes up one half of the brother/sister duo "Roger Roger", and has just released her very first solo album "Cottonwood".  Madeleine co-produced and co-engineered the album with Lloyd Peterson (The Wailin' Jenny's, The Weakerthans, James Keelaghan) at Paintbox Recording in Winnipeg. The album was proudly made with gender parity - half of the producing, audio engineering, musicians, and other artists identify as female. Written from Madeleine’s home in Winnipeg MB, and in a woodstove-heated cabin that her great-grandparents built in the Manitoba backwoods, Cottonwood combines the elegant storytelling of folk traditions with the grounded vibe of roots music. The album portrays her intuitive creativity; reflections on femininity and equality, the majesty of the wilderness, and the beautiful awkwardness of trying to love another person..Enjoy!
