Hey all!

It’s that time of year again, The 32nd annual Vancouver Folk Fest is just around the corner (the corner being July 17-19, 2009). If you haven’t already gotten your tickets, you should be ashamed of yourself. The Fest this year is teeming with talent, Geoff Berner, Mark Berube and the Patriotic Few, Dan Mangan, and Iron and Wine are playing, and that’s just a drop in the bucket of names for this year’s lineup.

Check out the list at 2009 Vancouver Folk Music Festival
