Music, Food & Friends
January 24, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Music is medicine, food is medicine and friends are medicine.
Moon Gate Guest House believes in creating space for guests to experience warmth, laughter, and joy while enjoying great music, great food and good friends.
Michel and Jenny have always loved entertaining – it’s in their roots. The party is always in the kitchen. With their Metis and French backgrounds, they grew up with homemade food on the table, including wild meat and fish, garden vegetables and from scratch baked goods like bread, buns, pies, suc a crème and tourtiere.
This new series was born from their experiences and now, they are pleased to invite you to their inaugural event where live music is paired with food!

Featuring Tracy K & Jamie Steinhoff Blues Duo
“I truly hope that Tracy K and Jamie Steinhoff continue as Blues Duo and in doing so, offer us much more of the same in the future, from these immensely talented artists.” – John Vermilyea, Blues Underground Network
”Yes I declare I am a fan. That is what motivates me as a promoter to book Tracy K to audiences of 30,000 people; and most recently, Tracy and Jamie to an intimate evening of 200. They brought a passionate charm to their blues tradition and know what it takes to move an audience.” – Marv Terhoch, President, Terhoch Associates, Winnipeg, Manitoba
”We are always very pleased to have Tracy K & Jamie Steinhoff play, as they draw a crowd from miles around. Their exceptional talent, wit, humour, day to day stories makes the duo appealing and keeps people coming back.” – John Cox, Green Achers of Wabigoon, Ontario
When chef Jamie “Snakeman” Steinhoff isn’t cookin’ in the kitchen, he’s cookin’ on guitar. Now he’s outta the kitchen and cookin’ onstage!
The 2011 album “Canned Heat” introduces this lesser known bluesman guilty of preserving authenticity paired with award winning performer Tracy K. Known for wailing on harmonica and beltin’ out blues Tracy K’s desire to form a specific kind of acoustic duo was fulfilled after moving to Thunder Bay, Ontario where she met Jamie Steinhoff.
Woodshedding for decades, Steinhoff’s dedication to folk & blues from the 1920s to 40s is revealed in his swampy Delta slide and Piedmont finger style guitar work and gritty soulful vocals. The duo’s steamy blues and lively rags, contemporary originals and vintage gems in the blues-folk tradition make up their sound. The acoustic tracks from Tracy K’s repertoire find a home in this show amidst song choices unheard in her electric set, and some of Jamie’s clever originals.
Together Tracy and Jamie have been recorded by CBC Radio’s “Bandwidth” and “Canada Live” and co-wrote an epigrammatic tribute called “This Axe is Your Axe” for Jowi Taylor’s Six String Nation Guitar tour. They’ve shared stages and billings with artists like Bill Bourne, Rita Chiarelli, Joey Landreth, Terra Lightfoot, Fred Eaglesmith and John Sebastian amongst other fine players. The duo became quarter finalists at the 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee and more recently completed a Home Routes Tour in Manitoba. They tour acoustic venues and festivals across the land packing some infamous homemade Tracy K’s Stolen Apple Jelly, if there’s any left.
Tracy K has three other albums and appears on several other recordings and in two Hollywood films. Over the years the Toronto Blues Society selected Ms.K for performances at their annual Harmonica Workshop, Women’s Blues Revue, Talent Search, and their Internationally acclaimed Blues Summit. Tracy K was commissioned by CBC Radio to write a song for “Canada Reads, Ontario Rocks” and her band was recorded live in Ottawa for CBC’s “Canada Live”.
Together they are based in humble little Beausejour, Manitoba, where they garden, enjoy nature, canoe and kayak, cross country ski, and play music with friends.
