Festival Season is upon us

This was taken yesterday at The Forks in Winnipeg (so named because the city was originally built around the junction of three rivers), where we were part of the "Ban Landmines" benefit concert for Amnesty International. Now that the weather is really hot, we're doing lots of outdoor festivals and smaller shows like this one.

Winnipeg's Folklorama, the largest multi-cultural festival in North America, starts in just a week, now that the Fringe Festival is over. We'll be part of the opening ceremonies on Scotia Bank Stage on July 31, where we share the stage with Colin Hay (former lead singer of Men At Work), and we'll be the house band for a week at the Celtic Ireland Pavillion. If you're around locally for the week of August 8-14, stop by any night for a great time.
