Festival seeking local musical talent

  • Apr. 3, 2006 3:00 p.m.

Submitted by Pat Carrie Smith for the Edge of the World Music Festival-It’s that time again! Spring and Daylight Savings are here, and the Edge of the World Music Festival Society is lining up talent for the 2006 music festival, to be held on July 7, 8, 9. This year the festival wants to Catch the Wave of local talent. We have a local headliner appearing this year, and we need more local musicians! The last date to apply is April 15, so contact the Artistic Director, Kerri Haybittle at aristicdirector@edgefestival.com. An application form can be viewed and printed from www.qcislands.net/~pcsmith.
The off-island headliners at this year’s festival will be Mr. Something Something, an exciting afrobeat band from Toronto; Random Order, a rap/reggae/punk group also out of Toronto; from the prairies Five Star Homeless, a ‘roots a’ billy’ quintet out of Saskatchewan; and a hot band from Vancouver, Freeflow, with soul, reggae, rap, and rock and roll. It’s an amazing lineup – an equally amazing lineup of local talent will help create an awesome 2006 festival!
The festival society would also like to announce that we have a new Festival Director for 2006, Roeland Denooij. He can be reached at festivaldirector@edgefestival.com.
