Summer Festival Preview

Dan Mangan at Home County Folk Fest 2011

Canadian folk festivals are announcing their lineups (we're still waiting on NXNE), including the Home County Folk Festival in London-- Jul. 20-22-- which N2D will be attending along with a robust group of CBC Radio 3 bloggers. Suggested donation per day is only $5, and CBC Radio 3 host Craig Norris will be on hand as a main stage announcer. Which band are we most looking forward to hearing? The Kramdens. The lineup thus far is listed below.

Sarnia's Artwalk (Jun. 2-3) has also announced their initial performer lineup. They're introducing ticketed evening shows this year, and making it well worth your money: Hawksley Workman and Regina's Rah Rah. Also scheduled to play: Sunparlour Players, who easily became one of our top shows of 2011 after seeing them at Windsor's Capitol Theatre.
