It’s finally here! It’s finally here! It’s finally here!
Tonight is the first night of Folk Fest and I’m very excited for a weekend of live music! I’ve been looking forward to this since last year. Regina doesn’t have as many festivals as, say, Edmonton (and they’re certainly not as large) but the few we have are fantastic and I dare say the RFF is my favourite – closely followed by the Cathedral Village Arts Festival.
Tonight’s schedule (available on ReginaFolkFestival.com) is as follows…
7:00pm – 7:45pm FRED PENNER
7:45pm – 8:00pm Shotgun Jimmie
8:00pm – 8:30pm BRAIDS
8:30pm – 8:45pm Cris Derksen
8:45pm – 9:30pm ETRAN FINATAWA
9:30pm – 9:45pm Slow Down, Molasses
9:45pm – 10:45pm ANDREW BIRD
10:45pm – 11:00pm Michael Bernard Fitzgerald
11:00pm – 11:45pm KT TUNSTALL
Look for me when you get down there. I’ll be wearing my cool new straw fedora, a striped white and brown shirt with a collar, light beige pants and brown leather old man shoes. I’ll be somewhere near the front singing along with Fred Penner and whistling along with Andrew Bird. If you see anyone who fits that description, come say, “Hi!”
