The sweet sound of bluegrass wafted across Fraser's Grove Park on Wednesday night. 

"neWSOunds" features Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra members Gregory Hay (banjo), Chris Anstey (fiddle), Mike Kemp (percussion) and Meredith Johnson (double bass). 

Their toe-tapping tunes -- and even tight vocal harmonies! -- were enjoyed by a modest crowd at 969 Kildonan Drive, across by Fraser's Grove Park on a breezy, late-summer's evening. 


The ensemble performs with full orchestral accompaniment to kick-off the WSO's return to the Centennial Concert Hall on September 18 and 19. 

Afternoon host Chris Wolf had the opportunity to chat with multi-instrumentalist Gregory Hay ahead of the performance. Find the conversation below!
