Today a look back at this year's Calgary Folk Music Festival, which happened last weekend. It was my first time there in a decade, and it had me wondering what took me so long to come back. Lots of highlights and sounds of the festival to share today! We've also got an exciting upcoming show to promote and some well-wishes for our favourite newlywed singer/songwriter!
Last week's look back at the previous weekend's 56th Mariposa Folk Festival was fun, but we didn't get through nearly enough of the great artists and moments I'd seen there, so we need another episode to look through some more of the Mariposa magic!
There's no summer break for great new music, it just keeps on coming, so we've got a lot of it to share today, as well as a musical map of my summer travels to festivals and fun spots east and west (and east again)!
A look back at the 56th Mariposa Folk Festival, which was held last weekend in Orillia, ON (with one off-topic tangent along the way), including an interview with my favourite Mariposa memory-maker, Jon Brooks!
There's nothing I love more than sharing great Canadian music, and on the day before Canada Day, you'd better believe that we're going to do exactly that. Tonight, it's a 100% roots rockin' hit dance party, with just a few of our absolute favourites, including a look at the upcoming return of our namesake artist, Mike Plume!
Today a tribute to a friend who's tying the knot this summer, some sounds of the month of July, a look ahead to the Mariposa Folk Festival next weekend as well as Mike Plume's upcoming StuDome show, some of my current musical obsessions, and more!
