If you have been reading The Late Greats for a while, you know The Duke champions bands from Canada. So when news broke this week that one of my favorite music festivals – The Philadelphia Folk Fest – will be featuring a “Canada Stage”, I got extra excited for the event (August 20-22).
Slated to play said stage (on Sunday the 22nd) are:
If you like your blues piano with sultry vocals, you’ll LOVE Treasa.
With a name like that, who wouldn’t want to see these guys live.
They call it “acid folk”. Looking forward to hearing how their sound sounds live.
Amelia won a Juno for Roots and Traditional Album Of The Year 2010. Which for me is reason enough to give her a listen.
