Yer folk fest warnings

Since Calgary Folk Fest was just last weekend, I can give next weekend's Edmonton Folk Fest attendees a heads-up about these performers:

* Arrested Development will make everyone stand up and dance. If you don't like that kind of thing, you are now forewarned! Yes, main stage AND workshops. It was hilarious to watch from the low-key picking workshop: stage 4 with AD and other hip hop artists making the crowd pogo, and stage 3 with Papagroove making the crowd pogo. At least their main stage performance is at 2pm on Sunday.

* Any workshop with Steven Page will be mobbed.

Since both these performers will be doing main stage shows, prepare for tarp trespassers. This may be an issue for Iron & Wine on Saturday night, but maybe not.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Arrested Development's mainstage trespassers can have my spot on the tarp if they want--I'll be elsewhere. ;-)

Thanks for the heads up - I appreciate the opportunity to be mentally prepared for tarp trespassers.

tarp trespassers drive me nuts.

The solution, of course, is to be front-and-centre, because the trespassers never get quite that far... ;-)
