Roots Song of the Week: Emma-Lee, What Would Tom Petty Do?

I was in the shower this morning… Now that that involuntary shudder has subsided, let me continue. I was in the shower this morning, and out of Radio 2 came this terrific little slice of fandom, power pop, and breezy lyrical play.

Edmonton Folk Music Festival, August 9, 2008

I was only able to attend one day of the Edmonton Folk Music Festival this year. As I get older, I do find that one day is enough for me! However, I would love to be able to attend for more days; maybe I need to move closer to Edmonton! In the past I’ve been fortunate… Continue reading Edmonton Folk Music Festival, August 9, 2008
