I got the Regina Folk Festival lineup for 2013 a few days ago over lunch. I looked at the list — which you can see below — and thought, “Wow. This is a good list.”
Later in the afternoon, after a nap and some work and whatnot, I tried mentally reconstructing the list. I rattled off a bunch of artists, really good ones too. When I checked back with the official lineup, I’d missed big ones, musicians whose records I own and love.
That’s the quality of this year’s RFF: there’s so much good, you can forget some of it.
Here’s the lineup itself. According to RFF artistic director Sandra Butel, there are still more locals to be booked. Check back at Dog Blog for more posts about this year’s festival, including more info from Butel.
