"Calgary Herald: Five Questions for Trina Nestibo"

Q: You write on your website about listening to old country tunes and the weather channel with your father. Doesn't that make for a depressing day?

A: (laughs) Well, being a farmer, you're obsessed with mother nature. You have to be, right? I spent a lot of time looking at the sky and talking about the weather. You notice the seasons changing and you watch the storms coming in, because you have to... Our (family) farm was in western Manitoba, three miles south of a little hamlet called Goodlands. There were limited radio stations , so when I was falling in love with music it was the really traional, twangy country stuff and my mother's collection of doo wop and gospel records... I didn't buy my first CD until I was 18 years old. I was sort of sheltered in that way.

"Times & Star: Nestibo Visits Deloraine on CD Tour"

The Deloraine Legion was filled to capacity on Sunday, November 2 when singer/songwriter Trina Nestibo was in town to share her first CD, Someday: So Far.

It was standing room only at the Deloraine Legion for Nestibo. "It really is a treat to be here. It's great to be home and to share my music with you."
Nestibo's sound is a unique mix of folk, country, rock, and soul and she calls it "Prairie Infused Roots Music."
I'm no big expert but it really seems this is the start of something 'Big' for Trina Nestibo, singer and songwriter formerly of Goodlands, Manitoba. - Judy Wells, November 8 '08

"Beat Route Magazine: Pussy Willow Wednesday Jams"

Jam Night Draws Calgary's Talent

There's something to be said for being able o see two of Calgary's finest songstresses open up a live stage every week. Trina Nestibo and Heather Blush host a Wednesday night jam with lots of great sit-in talent at Mikey's Juke Joint...
BeatRoute sat down with Nestibo and Blush to talk about how they met, their new albums, and Pussy Willow Wednesday Jams.

BeatRoute: How did the two of you first meet?
Heather Blush: We'd only heard of one another for the longest time. We were both music therapists here in Calgary, but had never met. Both of us were playing music around town and people were always asking us if we we knew each other.

BeatRoute: How long have you been together as a duo for Pussy Willow?
Trina Nestibo: We started last June with a third member, Dawn Desmerais. That was a very different jam. We had themes every week. It was exuberant - prison, pirates, we dressed up for the occasion. She moved away to Montreal, so we've moved away from the variety show to a more traditional open mic type event...

Pussy Willow Wednesday Jams is hosted by Trina Nestibo and Heather Blush every Wednesday at MIkey's Juke Joint. - Kevin Fedirko, January 2009
