Give yourselves a pat on the back, Ottawa concert-goers!! This is what Jeff Innes, leader of Yukon Blonde told me this week. He said that he and Dan Mangan were talking recently and they agreed that Ottawa is where it's at, baby !!
If you missed them at the Ottawa Folk Festival, you can still catch Yukon Blonde next week at the Pop Montreal International Music Festival.
If you're looking for something a little closer to home, check out the Arboretum Arts Festival on Saturday, September 15 at the Arts Court and old Ottawa Jail. The line-up includes Sandro Perri and is headlined by the ever-eloquent Cadence Weapon.
I will be giving away a pair of tickets to the festival on today's program! Be ready to tweet or call-in when I give the cue between 5 and 6 pm.
