It's no secret that we love Dan Mangan around here. We've put the guy on our cover not once, but twice. We even had him come into Straight HQ and play an unplugged set to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary.

As Mike Usinger reported earlier today, Mangan has been announced as one of the headliners for this year's Burnaby Blues + Roots Festival, which takes place Saturday (August 10) at Deer Lake Park.
