I’m growing sad about not getting my folk fest fix this summer. I did snag tickets to Mumford and Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road stop in Ontario, but beyond that I’m dry. Oh, wait – there is the 3rd Annual Fast Folk Fest at Knox Presbyterian in Toronto (details soon to follow).
But in the absence of my previous annual enjoyment of the Calgary Folk Music Festival, I figured I’d put together my own folk fest line up right here at Squinch. So, pull up a festival chair, feel the grass in your feet and enjoy a few of the bands that I’d love to see line-up my own personal folk festival. And while you’re enjoying the music, tell me about the bands you would put on stage.
And first up are Joy Kills Sorrow. Won over by their name, I was kept close by their music. Vancouver friends – they play Sunday June 9 in your gorgeous city. But everyone can check them out below.
