June Festival Picks
I can’t believe that peak music festival season (for me) is almost here! This year I plan on attending Dragon Boat Festival, Jazz Festival, RCMP Sunset Ceremony, Bluesfest and Kemptville Live before taking a break until CityFolk in September.
I’ll be starting out with Dragon Boat Festival on Thursday as I cannot resist an opportunity to see The Sheepdogs play a free show. Friday (weather permitting) I plan to check out the RCMP Sunset Ceremony, which includes their famous Musical Ride. The rest of June I will be attending shows at Jazz Festival as they have some great acts lined up including Kenny Rogers, Joss Stone, Mavis Staples, Maceo Parker & The Ray Charles Orchestra, The Peptides, Caravan Palace, Rory Block, Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters, The Downchild Blues Band, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Blue Moon Marquee and Groenland (the last 2 are free Canada Day shows).
Happy Festival Season Everyone!
