A memorable weekend at the Edmonton Folk Festival. Â Good friends and great shows by The Wailers, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Old Man Leudecke, Great Lake Swimmers, Skydiggers and on and on… Â Shared the stage with Johnny Flynn, Danny Michel, David Francey, Jill Barber, Ben Sures and more. Â Wrote this cranky goofball song on Sunday morning just before my second 11AM !? workshop. Â A work in progress and no doubt the melody is stolen but what can you expect after 3 hours sleep…
Mainstage on Sunday night was exciting with a crowd that looked to be around 20 or 30 thousand people. Â Sun was down and the lights were on. Â 3 songs in 11 minutes. Â Nothing but the hits…
