I kicked off seeing more live music by going to the Sappy Records Music Festival in Sackville, New Brunswick. I was able to see an overwhelming number of bands and performers over three beautiful Summer days. Some of the musical highlights that come to the top of my mind are seeing Julie Doiron, Shotgun & Jaybird, Old Man Luedecke, Chris Eaton, Windom Earle, Snailhouse, Abigail Lapell, Dave Bidini, The Singing Saw Shadow Show, and a couple of reunion performances by Eric’s Trip. Those are just the things that come to mind right now, there was so much more great stuff that I still haven’t absorbed it all. Seeing live music in small venues with great people is the best.
