May 24 Weekend
Festival season in the area is officially underway. This weekend you can check out Kemptville Dandelion Festival which has live music by a variety of acts including Amanda Rheaume, Marta Pacek, Twin Voices, Gunner and Smith and Jan Purcell & Pine Road to name a few. If that’s too far out of town for you, the Ottawa Race Weekend has added a concert series which includes Jim Bryson, Amos the Transparent Hawksley Workman, Furious Gord and a number of other acts. Yet another option is the Ravenswing Arts and Music Fair at Minto Park on May 25 which features music that ranges from hauntingly beautiful acoustic folk, to a sea of modular synths; and from passionate spoken word, to swampy rock n roll. And that’s not enough to keep you occupied, don’t forget about the Great Glebe Garage Sale on Saturday.
