(Emmylou Harris performs on July 7th while Andrew Bird drives into town on the 11th)

The main stage schedule for this year’s Folk Festival has surfaced, and it goes a little something like this:

Wednesday, July 7th
The Wailin’Jennys
Emmylou Harris
Jimmy Cliff

Thursday, July 8 
Romi Mayes
Tao Seeger
John Hiatt & The Combo
The Avett Brothers
The Levon Helm Band

Friday, July 9
Sonny Landreth
The Swell Season
The Peatbog Faeries

Saturday, July 10
Etran Finatawa
Works Progress Administration
Hot Tuna
The Cat Empire
Arrested Development

Sunday, July 11
Gord Downie & the Country of Miracles
Sarah Harmer
Andrew Bird

A few things to note…

If you haven’t heard, Simon & Garfunkle’s MTS Centre May 5th gig is postponed to July 8th, which is really really untimely.

Other than Gord Downie & the Country of Miracles, a few others were recently added to the whopping folk fest bill: Ghostkeeper, Kinnie Star, and Trio Bembe.

The short sets (between main stage acts) are still to be announced.  Personally, I’m hoping Europe plays a quick set right before Arrested Development, while GOB dazzles the eye with some magic tricks illusions. Yes, I'm in a goofy mood today.

In non-folk fest concert news…

Toronto pop-rockers Sweet Thing stop by the Pyramid on June 4th.

British folk-pop songstress Helen White is there on May 14th.

And lastly, Reflection Eternal performs at the Pyramid on June 2nd.

That's right. It's an "Illusion", Mykael. A trick is something a whore does for money.

the S&G reschedule is truly brutal; with an even spread of quality acts across the FF weekend, a usually low key Thursday night may be the best so far.
whats a fan to do?
