Music festival this weekend!

Just because we live at the edge of the world, doesn’t mean we have to be deprived of the fun and excitement of the summer festival experience. And this is the weekend!
The Edge of the World music festival has been a destination in past years for all kinds of talent and this year’s no exception, with on- and off-island acts covering the spectrum. Folk, rock, blues, jazz, funk, reggae, African drumming, bluegrass and ska, you name it! Something for everyone, no matter what you like to move your feet to.
Along with music, there’ll be workshops galore – salsa dancing, African drumming, fiddling, vocal. A great chance to learn something new or work on a skill.
Bill Richardson, of the CBC’s “Richardson’s Roundup”, will be at the festival. He will be doing some reading on the main stage at 5:00 pm Saturday. Other ‘fringe’ events include jugglers, dancers, and storytelling.
Weekend passes are $50, half price for seniors and youth, or you can buy tickets per day – $35 for Saturday and $20 for Sunday.
