It was a bit worrying with a cloudy sky and light rain, but the show went on and the first (and possibly annual) Sappy Records Music Festival got underway with Julie Doiron performing songs from the recordings that she released under the name “Broken Girl”. It was short, but sweet. The rain then let up and there were performances by Al Tuck, Old Man Luedecke, Baby Eagle, Alden Penner and Chad Van Gaalen. Great performances all around and there was also a barbecue that had both meat and veggie burgers. After the rain earlier there was not another bit of precipitation during the rest of Sappyfest.
