SAPPY TIMES III
Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.
At SappyFest I write SAPPY TIMES, a daily newspaper of the things I hear. SAPPY TIMES is distributed, on paper, throughout the SappyFest site. You can read about past years of the festival, and also about the festival generally, from my 2009 and 2010 posts. Here are this year's pages, written always between the hours of 11pm and 8am, and this year with marvelous meteorological reporting by Jeff Miller.
If you've never been to Sappy, I'll say it again: it's so special and small and of exceptional quality. If you enjoy the kind of music I do, and the songs we do, you owe it to yourself to book a trip to the Canadian east coast. See some swans, some beautiful songs, then drive to the coast and swim in the sea.
And finally, a little awkwardly, if you run a festival or an event or a zeppelin race or anything like that, and you would like to bring me to where you are, to write something like the Sappy Times, I would always love to talk to you. This is my email address.Posted by Sean at August 2, 2011 12:09 PM
SappyFest Six was my first Sappy experience, my first trip to Sackville... actually my first trip to the Maritimes, period. It is absolutely small and special and amazing and friendly and happy and delicious and heartwarming and comfortable and rockin'.
So glad you publish these, such a great year. Best ever, again. Let's see if they can do it again.Posted by Dave at August 3, 2011 9:08 AM
