Folk Fest: Welcome to paradise!
Let's get this out of the way: the weather sucks here at day two of the Vancouver Folk Fest (although there appears to be a warm sunny glow all of a sudden outside the media tent. Nope, it's gone). James Cotton Superharp is about to kick off the evening's ministrations on the main stage pictured above, with its sea of drenched tarps in front.
Relentless fucking radioactive rain or not, the numbers look pretty good for the venerable festival, and so far, Saturday has been stuffed with highlights like CR Avery and Kelly Joe Phelps heading up A Touch of the Blues, and Mary Gauthier and Rosanne Cash leading the charge at Sisters In Song.
But the main course has just started over in tarp world and I'm outta here.
