Beginning this weekend is the aptly named, "In The Dead Of Winter" (IDOW) music festival. It's an acoustic based festival that is held annually in Halifax on the last weekend of January and then in Wakefield, Quebec on the second weekend in February. The Halifax festival began in 2006 while the Wakefield festival began in 2009, at the Black Sheep Inn.
On Hop The Fence tonight, I will be speaking with Terra LIghtfoot, who has had a stellar year since releasing her new album Every Time My Mind Runs Wild in April. She is in Ottawa this weekend performing at the ultimate Canadian winter festival, Winterlude. Then, tomorrow night she'll be at The Blacksheep Inn in Wakefield as part of IDOW. She'll be back to open up for Blue Rodeo at CTC on Feb 14!
Tune in at 5 pm today! Find us at 89.1 FM in Ottawa or online at CHUO.fm. You can also find us on iTunes radio under College stations and on #943 on Rogers HD.
