Baby Eagle - Memory Forever

Once again, the Bloor Ossington Folk Festival stayed true to its roots as a low-key and local celebration. By enfolding itself into the contours of Christie Pits, BOFF still feels casual and approachable, even with some heavy hitters in its lineup. As so often happens at outdoor events, weather forced organizers to make some adjustments on the fly, but even having to move the headliners into the beer tent served to reinforce the intimate vibes. There's room to grow, but overall the organizers are getting things right.

With some evening rain breaking out, Steve Lambke seized the opportunity to make this an even more casual and intimate affair, inviting the crowd to take shelter with the band underneath the stage's tent. I actually ended up sitting behind drummer Ian Kehoe as the pair cranked out a whole bunch of new songs, and in the chilly gloom, a spider kept dropping down in front of me, starting its night's work — patient unfurling all around.
