CityFolk 2019 [Day 3]

Third day of CityFolk Festival.
Started off the day by checking out the Marvest show I was showcasing at Purple Urchin Soap with Sophie D’Orléans and Alexandra Sullivan.
Then at the main festival site starting off the Ravenlaw Stage Eleni Mandell from Los Angeles.
At the City Stage was Saul Williams who performed at 4:45pm.
The Experimental Hip-hop and spoken word artist just stood there with his laptop.
By his body language, I would be pissed if I performed that early and not have alot of audience showing up but I enjoyed his beats! 7/10.
Caught a song from Tamino.
I think it was the first Ottawa show for Rhye.
The Toronto musician performed a wonderful alternative R&B and smooth pop music.
Kind of bummed he didn’t play The Fall but it was still so good. 8/10.
First of two show for Tim Baker at the festival.
Started off with Dancer from his full-length album Forever Overhead.
Something about that song gets you abit emotional.
He sang a nice cover of Neil Young’s Harvest Moon. 8/10.
Leon Bridges ended the night at the City Stage.
The American soul singer came out in a Chinese robe.
Performing more of a funky R&B soul set this time.
Most of the songs from his debut album Coming Home had more of a upbeat flavour in songs like Coming Home and Brown Skin Girl.
Great Saturday night to be shaking and groovin’! 8/10.
Then ended the night on the Ravenlaw stage is the 2019 Polaris Music Prize shortlist nominee Snotty Nose Rez Kids.
Fun, empowering and energetic set is all I can say! 9/10.
