Favourite Shows of 2011


Recommended Posts

Let's hear 'em.

Living in Yellowknife made this one a quieter year than usual for me, with mostly low-key shows and the odd big event when I would head south. That said, my two highlights were both in Yellowknife: the Deep Dark Woods at Folk on the Rocks (a highly recommended festival) and Craig Cardiff at a house concert under the midnight sun on Latham Island in Great Slave Lake. Both were ideal intersections of music and setting.

For me:

Avett Brothers

DelFest (esp. late night Railroad Earth, The Infamous Stringdusters and Old Crow Medicine Show)

Phish at Darien (it had been a long long while)

Mumford & Sons (Hamilton) (probably takes the cake)

Further (Buffalo)

Many, many other great honourable mentions, but those were probably my top...
