The Ottawa Folk Festival kicked off the final nice summer day. With various singer/songwriter’s workshops happening This was another great day with no rain in the forecast.
The weekend part of the Ottawa Folk Festival is the best part. Why? Because they have the singer/songwriter workshops where the musicians collaborate with other musician.

I had a interesting night. I wasn’t expecting to see Martha Wainwright again. Last time I saw her play was at Bluesfest. Thanks to my brother who won the tickets from CBC Radio 3(Who says CBC doesn’t give away good things? Support Radio 3 and good things might come).
