The Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store is your one-stop shop for personalized service and independent music.
Located at 211 Bannatyne Ave. (at Albert), in the heart of Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District, the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store is where discerning music lovers get their fix of world, folk, Celtic, blues, bluegrass, country, rock, alternative, old-tyme, jazz, and uncategorizable music – and everything in between on CD, DVD, and vinyl. And we also carry lots of local music from artists not yet signed to a distributor.
