Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival

Balcony, Lunenburg

Last night was the start of the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival. We have festival passes, which means we'll be spending the next 3 days enjoying music and festivities in Lunenburg. The nightime program is the Mainstage Tent, high on the hill of Blockhouse Hill Road. The sunset was spectacular, the view to the harbour was lovely, and the music was hand clappin', foot stompin' good.

Favourites from last night:

Smokin' Contra Band, who describe themselves as "A Halifax-based lively traditional band playing an entertaining and foot-stomping assortment of old-timey fiddle tunes, jigs and reels with a whisper of bluegrass."

And... Notre Dame de Grass, a blue grass band. John still can't believe I love bluegrass. He thinks that people from hoity toity London, Ontario would fall over if they knew I was a blue grass fan.
