On July 7th, the Winnipeg Folk Festival celebrates it's 43th annual festival with it's usual lineup that's sure to delight young and old. I attended just one day last year and as of right now, I don't have plans to attend this year. It usually takes one or two interesting acts that will drag me down to Birds Hill Park, but I honestly don't see much that interests me and I'm not too crazy about handing over so much ca$h. I know everyone has personal tastes and a lot of people will attend no matter who's performing as it's their tradition to visit old friends and to listen to old music and hopefully discover new music. To be honest, my favourite part of attending the festival is discovering under the radar acts and seeing the acts I'm familiar with more up close.
If I don't attend, I thought I should re-share one of my favourite performances at the festival by one of my all time favourite performers, Ray Davies. This will probably be the closest I'll get to seeing the Kinks, so I have this show locked up in my memory for safe keeping. I previously posted this show back in July of 2008, a few weeks after the show, but I want to offer an upgrade with a FLAC lossless version of the one I posted. Previously I posted the show in mp3 and since I posted I had requests to repost (it's no longer available anyways) in lossless.
If you attend this year's festival, enjoy! It should be wet and rainy all weekend so keep dry and let me know what I was missing.
