I've heard of about 10 as well, which more than what I recognize in the lineups for other festivals.

A somewhat rare (these days) Barr Brothers appearance in Southern Ontario.

Great to see Kevin Breit, Charlotte Cornfield, Luyas, Sarah Harmer on the list.

Lacking in headliners?  Who would headline this?

I wish they would get Cyro Baptista to come and play one of these years.

This weekend folks. Some of us on here are playing with the Blurry Pickers on Saturday at 3 and then again as part of two workshops on Sunday. One at 7 and the other at 10:15.


Full schedule can be found here:


On a down note unfortunately gratefulfest has been cancelled this year where we were also scheduled to play. Bummed about that....
