Last month my family attended the Canmore Folk Festival.  This is part 2 of a showcase concert put on by U22 productions on  July 29 at The Communitea Cafe in Canmore.  U22 is a non profit organization dedicated to nurturing and developing the talents of Albertan performers under the age of 22.

Performers featured this episode:

The Doll Sisters are a sister duo who write and perform haunting old-country inspired songs with tight harmonies accompanied by guitar, fiddle and mandolin.

Braden Gates is a champion fiddle player, but he is also an adept fingerstyle guitar player and accomplished storyteller/songwriter.

Samantha and Emily Schultz are sisters from Edmonton with rich voices, and a knack for writing catchy, folk flavoured pop songs.

Scenic Route to Alaska are a folk-blues-rock trio from Edmonton.

Cheryl Gaudet is a songwriter who hails from Nova Scotia. She has 2 CDs of original music out.  In 1990,she had a dream to host a festival at the wonderful Eaglewood Resort in Pefferlaw,Ontario.  I caught up with her at the 20th annual Eaglewood Folk Festival.  We reminisced about past festivals, talked about songwriting and her move to Mexico.

The 21st annual Eaglewood Folk Festival is fast approaching on August 27-29, 2010.  Check it out for a wonderful festival experience.

Doug McArthur is a veteran Canadian singer-songwriter.  He has worked both as performing musician and in Arts administration with organizations such as the Festival of Friends, the Toronto Jazz Festival and the  the Eaglewood Folk Festival.  I caught up to him at the 20th annual Eaglewood Folk Festival.  Enjoy.

I’m very sorry. For over a month the Sue Passmore show has been available without any sound.   I’ve run into my friend and fan of For the Sake of the Song , Jeff Potts, several times in the last six weeks.  Each time, he mentioned that he was unable to open my For the Sake of the Song episode with Sue Passmore.  I agreed that was very peculiar and could not figure out what might be going wrong.  Today Jeff emailed me again and I decided to download it myself to see what was up.  What was up was twenty-six minutes and fourteen seconds of silence.   My apologies to all 500+ people who downloaded a blank show.  And here for your listening pleasure is my interview with Sue Passmore, now with 100%  more audio.    Thanks Jeff for your persistence in reminding me.

Update:  Since I first released this Show the Good Lovelies won a 2010 Juno for Best Folk/Roots Album by a Group.  Congratulations Sue, Kerri and Caroline.

Sue Passmore is the second member of the Good Lovelies that I have been able to interview for my podcast. We found a semi quiet spot in the woods during a break in the rain at the  Eaglewood Folk Festival to sit down and talk songwriting. I interviewed her bandmate, Caroline Brooks over a year ago.  It has been an interesting exercise to talk to different members of the same band about songwriting.  This summer,  I’ll be looking for Kerry Ough at festivals to complete the set.
