Episode #404 Sunday, August 14, 2011

We’re pre-recorded one more time, but we’ve got some stellar material on this episode. This week is our look back at the 32nd Edmonton Folk Music Festival, held last weekend. We’ll tell you about the highlights and surprises, the hits and the misses. Also, we got to do some in-person interviews with the stars, including Lissie, The Secret Sisters, and Deer Tick. We also got our hands on an eagerly awaited, not-yet-released CD, and managed to get a few words from one of the greatest songwriters of all time. Well worth a listen, I’d say.
