If you haven't booked your ticket to Calgary yet this summer, what the hell are you waiting for?
The full line-up for the Calgary Folk Festival has just been announced, and my belief in karma has been restored.
I am going to make sure that everybody who comes into the record tent on my shift, leaves with at least one Decemberists cd.
I am also uber-excited about the Acorn, Bell Orchestre, Deep Dark Woods, Michael Franti, Gomez, Iron and Wine, Kid Koala, Carolyn Mark, Mekons, Justin Rutledge, Mavis Staples, Tom Fun Orchestra, Nancy White, and of course everybody's favourite no matter how many millions of times you have seen him - Chad VanGaalen.
See who I have missed here and check out the mainstage schedule here. The mainstage looks like it could even rival the workshops this year. And you know that workshops are where it all happens.
See you on the island!
