I can’t believe I’ve lived in Calgary for as long as I have and have never, ever been to the Folk Music Festival. Not sure exactly why–time of year, crowds and the inherent hassle that comes with a big event (not that that’s stopped me before), a lineup that hasn’t stopped me in my tracks–you know–the kind of acts where you say–that’s nice, but is it worth the effort?
So this year, when the lineup was announced, I took a look, as I always do, and one of the headliners caught my eye.
Joe Jackson. No, no relation to Michael, as I had to explain to my mother. Joe Jackson, the British blues-jazz-new wave-all around talented musician.
It wouldn’t be first time I’d seen him…
