One of the aspects I appreciate most about this increasingly popular festival is that they continue to support local talent. Appearances on these stages in front of throngs of music fans who may be seeing them for the first time is a huge boon for up-and-coming talent. On today’s program, I will be spinning tunes from local bands and other great Canadian independants that will be performing at the festival over the next 9 days including Hearts and Mines, Suzi Vinnick, Tara Holloway, Cold Specks, Neko Case, Diamond Rings, A Tribe Called Red. Don’t know if I’ll have time to fit them all in!
There are also plenty of other events and gigs going on in town (e.g. Shannon Rose and The Thorns at the Blacksheep Inn).
Tune in at 5 pm to see what I manage to squeeze into one hour of programming!
