2008 Edmonton Folk Fest Performers Line-up Rant

Remembering it's June, curiosity got the better of me and I meandered over to the folk fest website to checkout whose performing this year. Bad idea. Now I'm jealous. Just taking the highlights of the mainstage: Amiee Mann, beautiful voice, great song writting; Hawksley Workman, good live; Joan Osborne, she was great last time; Michael Franti and Spearhead, always a party; Broken Social Scene, awesome Canadian superband, played Fuji Mountian Rock fest last year; The Duhks, bluegrass-funk? great song writing; Chris Isaak, great chance to see him live. And I've made no mention of the numerous performers doing workshops... Bah! What a year to be in Shikaoi when the Folk Fest line up for 2008 looks so so good!
