Summer+Folk Festival=HEART

Last year we arrived back to Canada from our travels grateful for our adventures, thankful for a dear family and community to return to, and very broke. Our friends enjoyed our local folk fest while we looked for a job and a home. It was a just conquest in search of a consistent source income so we could eat food and stash our treasure trove of experiences.

We were blessed with a little apartment, a surprise car, and new educational endeavors.

This August, our story is different. We are eager and keen.
Sunny afternoons sitting atop a hill marinating in folk songs and dancing with hippies? YES PLEASE!

Upsides to this year's line-up:
The official bush-man face off (get it?) is now on between Arden and Mr. Sam Beam of Iron and Wine.


uuuuummm.
Arden: 0.5 points
Sam: 100 points

Give him time. Go honey!

This continues to be one of my favorite songs featuring Sam Beam.


A duet with Rosie Thomas. I've linked to it before, but you can enjoy it all over again.

The one downside to this year's line-up:
Mr. Ashley MacIsaac
If there is a hint of high kicks in kilts with no underpants on I'm jetting it 'outta there. Mr. MacIsaac better behave himself. FOR REAL.

0.5?? Really??

Come on. At least give me 10 points. It is pretty close to 1/10 of his beard.

Just for that I am never shaving again.

Good luck with that, Erika. Bushy beards really lose their appeal mighty quickly when you have to kiss a mess of hair every day.
