The leaves are starting to change colour here in Winnipeg. They litter the ground with their crunchy mess as they fall which cools my spirits slightly. It only means one thing – fall is here.
If there’s any solace it’s that the HARVEST MOON FESTIVAL is right around the corner. It’s closer than that actually. It’s this weekend and it’s what I look forward to most this time of year. The grass roots festival is one of my favourite events of the year, bringing together the pioneering spirit of local, sustainable food and one of the best parties in this little corner of the globe.
For the most part, the Harvest Moon Festival is a roots music gathering featuring some of Manitoba’s finest musicians. (Check the poster above or the festival site for full details.) As half of THE SHAKE, this will be our third year playing and we’re honoured to close the night on Saturday. Even with two years under us, I still don’t know exactly what to play, but it’s going to go something like this…
Two of my favourite local jocks close out Friday too. Beezkneez and ill type will jam it out – I just hope we won’t play any of the same tunes.
