Live Review: Edmonton Folk Music Festival Day Three ft. Richard Thompton + Lucius + The Milk Carton Kids and more! (08.08.15)


Richard Thompson performs while The Milk Carton Kids look on...

Our third day started off on stage three with the phenomenal "Define Folk" session, featuring Oysterband, Richard Thompson, Geoff Muldaur and Amos Garrett and The Milk Carton Kids. We arrived just in time for Geoff Muldaurs' delivery of "Tennessee Blues", which had a beautiful heartfelt country blues feel to it, before Richard Thompson went on to sing a gentle Celtic folk song accompanied by a rich swirl of strings.

Edmonton Folk Music Festival lineup Announced Including Angus and Julia Stone and more international folk acts

In the year 1980, Edmonton Folk Music Festival had only one leading staff and three-hundred volunteers, now it has become one of the leading folk festivals in the world. Present day, with over 2000 volunteers making a massive contribution, the festival has become a non-for-profit event, showcasing the best in folk music worldwide. Known for their hit single, "Big Jet Plane", Australian folk-duo Angus and Julia Stone will also be part of this year's festival lineup!

Five Acts You Probably Didn't See at Governor's Ball in New York City But Should Have...

It's already been a week since The Governor's Ball took over New York City's Randall Island, with OutKast, The Strokes, Jack White and many more gracing the festival's stages. But what about the bands who didn't close the three night event out? Our Aussie-based-in-NYC writer Rishe Groner was at the event (you can read her more extensive coverage HERE) and brings us her five "discoveries" of the festival - or: the five acts who you probably shouldn't have missed last weekend...

10 reasons to get up early and to go Governor's Ball before Noon (this means you, Loren).

Kicking off on Friday, this year’s Governor’s Ball lineup is as stacked as a fluoro-tube-top-wearing rave Jersey girl, and that includes the wee little hot pants, because it’s stacked at the bottom as well. It’s not just about the biggies, though Outkast, Vampire Weekend and Skrillex are certainly the drawcards over here (see my picks in the article five of the acts you can't miss). Here’s the top ten reasons I’ll be getting up early to arrive for the midday sets – and dragging my friends accordingly, to whom I have dedicated this very handy post.
