Waking up Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival morning is like Christmas morning for me as a kid. Excitement and anticipation fill the air! Getting to sit back on the lawn at Deer Lake and listen to the various musicians is like unwrapping the most marvellous gifts! All totally different and most delightful in their own ways. This year’s Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival 2017 is no different! In relishing anticipation, I know I get to enjoy 3 past musician favourites of mine – Little Miss Higgins, Jesse Roper, and Matt Andersen, and I get to indulge in 6 new-to-me musicians – Jesse Waldman, Kaya Kurz, Murray Porter, Leeroy Stagger, Sue Foley, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue! Good times!
