Rogue Folk Club Artistic Director Steve Edge, in the studios of CiTR. Note the Manchester United cap!

Saturday July 21, 2007

This week's show included a look back at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, a look ahead to next weekend's Mission Folk Music Festival (including much kudos to the organizers for avoiding this weekend ad its appalling weather!) Also a look ahead to future concerts and festivals in town and as far east as Edmonton.
New releases included: Clara Moreno's Meu Samba Toro (Compass), the new fRoots Sampler, and a continued fascination for New York's Hazmat Modine (which I downloaded from Is that a baaad thing to do?)
