Travelling Goodtime Medicine Show | Home Routes Celebrates 15 Years

April 1, 2022 - April 29, 2022


To celebrate their 15th anniversary, Home Routes is rekindling the name from those legendary concerts that laid the foundation for Canada’s folk music institutions, and creating a new concert series, unlocking new artistic expressions and creative collaborations. The 2022 version of the Travelling Goodtime Medicine Show is a series of 5 streaming concerts from premier music venues, available to everyone, everywhere. What could be more folk than that?

In August 1980, Winnipeg Folk Festival founders Mitch Podolak and Ava Kobrinsky produced a tour across Alberta called The Travelling Goodtime Medicine Show. The tour was a school bus full of now legendary musicians – Sylvia Tyson, Stan Rogers, Connie Kaldor and Jim Post – travelling from town to town, bringing one-day mini-festivals to each of these communities. This tour was an important catalyst for the founding of The Calgary and Edmonton Folk Festivals, also laying the theoretical framework for an organization that would begin to take shape 25 years later: Home Routes.
