Funny how so often when you are down in the dumps and needing that reminder that things are okay … that you are okay … you happen upon that song that ever so simply reminds you of just that! As I went to discover more music from the 2014 CBCmusic.ca Festival lineup, that is exactly what I found! Give it up for …
Thanks Crystal! Beautiful Day was exactly the song I needed after having a rather rough day and emotional week. Very much looking forward to kicking back on the lawn to more of your music at CBCmusic.ca Festival at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby, BC this Saturday!
To all of the rest of you, hailing from Wikwemikong Native Reservation on Canada’s Manitoulin Island in Ontario, Crystal will be bringing a bit Nashville and a whole lot of country to the tantalizing mix of Canadian musicians to heat up the summer at Deer Lake this Saturday. And an honour it is, I must say, as in the past year Crystal not only graced Inauguration Day at the White House with a performance, but also won a Juno for Aboriginal Album of the Year.
Crystal will take to the Courtyard Stage at 2:50 pm.
… and the next artist of the day …
I can’t help but smile fondly when I hear Hannah’s name, as I was first introduced to her music by one of Ahimsa‘s summer students years ago, Bronwyn Malloy. Bronwyn is friends with Hannah and created this tribute video to Hannah’s song The Beat Stuff with Alyzee Lakhani for some experimentation they were doing in character storytelling:
… and here is Hannah’s official video of The Beat Stuff …
Very much looking forward to Hannah taking to the Lake Stage at 3:20 pm, as despite to being a VanCity gal and enjoying her music for years, I have yet to see her live!
… following Hannah on the Lake Stage at 4:25 pm …
A bit of nostalgia, simply because the Arkells take me back to old haunts like Jackson Square! And what kind of Canadian gal would I be if I didn’t start the summer off with visions of dancing naked around a fire!?! Can picture the giant bonfire right now in the back fields of someones’ Ontario farm!
