Recorded at Christie Pits Park (Bloor Ossington Folk Festival – Day 2), September 18, 2016.Bart - Wade
Unsurprisingly, the fine sunny weather accompanying the festival's final day had the park feeling much more lively and animated with dog-walkers and playground patrons. The tent was also a lot busier from the get-go and as the warm sun held overhead, the rise of the hill beyond was soon filling as well. There was more of a poignant sad undertone to the day, with organizers, bands and audience members all dwelling a little more on the idea that this was the end of the line for the festival. But, as always, the music was a balm and a call to enjoy these moments while they last.
Bart brought their sunny ways to the afternoon's proceedings, and not even a broken string on Chris Shannon's guitar could derail them — although when Eamon McGrath's was sourced as an emergency replacement there was an amusing impromptu seminar on differing approaches to guitar strap length.
[Bart will be playing at Casper Skulls' EP Release Party at The Baby G on Saturday, November 26th.]
