It’s nice to remember that in summer, there’s more going on than just folk festivals. To remind us of that, we were visited by a couple of great live guests, who dropped by to sing and chat about upcoming non-festival appearances.
First up, singer/songwriter Kim Beggs came in all the way from the Yukon to appear on the show. Sure, she’s got a concert coming up on Aug. 10 with Christine Fellows and Kim Barlow, but I like to think that I’m the real reason she came to Winnipeg. I’m a dreamer, what can I say.
Then, another visit by one of our most frequent, and definitely one of our favourite guests, JP Hoe. Hoe’s got a show coming up on Aug. 16 at the West End, and he dropped by to plead for people to attend, and he gave his best sales pitch by singing and playing for us. I know I’m going to that show.
Then, my own plea for you to attend an upcoming show featuring one of the world’s great underrated songwriters, Australia’s Paul Kelly. Paul stops by the WECC on Wednesday, Aug. 9, and man, it’s gonna be good.
