GREAT write up, char (and bonnie! you guys were real troopers and so nice of Brain to get you transported safely and unsoundly

i've learned that the campers (at all these type of festivals) really take over the staking of close up main stage lawn chair seating once they get there on Friday, hey but you guys witnessed history and thanks for those high res vids

i think Down By the Henry Moore would be Murray's most well-known tune...I'll bet his house has a ton of great guests and jams (his musical ties plus being married to Denise Donlan, music biz, power executress)

aint those picasa pics great...she also has some wee bits of video...did GL or Ian also do any workshops? i love this one with Sylvia, Murray and the adorable Serena Ryder (a paler version of Tracy Chapman)

http://picasaweb.google.com/pmiller0...67120809432610

you're not getting older, you're getting better (i made that up! ) and so are your birthdays...cheers and thanks again

@ charlene - thanks for the re-cap. The ITA video gave me a lump in the throat. Happy belated birthday

Now what about that Lightfoot guitar in the woods, is that Lake "Couchiching" we see behind ? Am I "two 4 two" here ?

I think I wrote about the Mariposa sun logo being designed by Ian Tyson and tghedn re-vamped with the winking eye a few years ago by Murray McLauchlan.

Thanks for the info Char, that is most definitely a great spot for a 'Gordon Lightfoot fan' to spend a summers' day.

Mariposa Folk Festival featuring Gordon Lightfoot, Sylvia and Ian Tyson, Wooden Sky, Murray McLauchlin, Elliott Brood
Tudhope Park, Orillia ON July 9-11
By Joyanne van Laarhoven

This year marked the 50th anniversary of the Mariposa Folk Festival, and the main stage lineup boasted many returning Canadiana folk icons, while the side stages were aglow with younger talent.

The Saturday set from Beyond the Pale was a tight mixture of Jewish folk, bluegrass and Balkan sounds. Their intricate rhythms and graceful sound was invigorating and refreshing. Later that afternoon, Sharon and Bram, minus Lois, gave a set that was infectious and so incredibly earnest that you could not help but get out of your seat to swoon. Saturday afternoon also featured some fine bluegrass and sweet finger-picking tunes from the eclectic Grass Mountain Hobos, while Catherine MacLellan played a set that sounded ethereal and pure.

Elliott Brood was a crowd pleaser: their folk rock offerings were raucous and tight. And Ohbijou and Zeus paired up for a breezy workshop on the Bohemian Embassy stage next to the waters of Lake Couchiching. The two bands melded amid a maze of instruments to create a soft and airy sound. Fittingly, Mariposa's artist in residence, Travis Shilling, had a workshop at Studio Point, which was only a few steps away from the Bohemian stage.

During the weekend, the music played by the many artists who graced the Bohemian stage intertwined with the creative pulse set by Shilling and the painters at Studio Point. This pulse seemed to work together in order to produce a rich and inspired atmosphere. Across the park, however, Saskatchewan's Little Miss Higgins, a pint-sized powerhouse, nearly raised the roof with her infectious charm and catchy tunes. The Deep Dark Woods played twangy, real, and gorgeously arranged sets all weekend that seemed to melt the hearts of the listeners. The Wooden Sky likewise brought a sense of authenticity to the stage; the narratives of their songs were certainly compelling.

Later Sunday afternoon, the Sultans of Swing ripped up the Pub tent in a workshop that also featured the Breakmen. Sunday night, however, slowly drew more and more people to the main stage as it was the night to tribute Mariposa's musical past: perhaps nothing pleased the crowd more than hearing Murray McLauchlin singing about that dusty old farmer and his old tractor wheel. Both Sylvia and Ian Tyson, in separate sets, put on solid performances. And surprise special guests Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor played songs that were smooth, pretty and tight.

Closing up the night was a weathered Gordon Lightfoot. While the volume may not have been quite right for Lightfoot, or perhaps it was the open nature of the large stage he played on, if you listened closely enough, you could still hear his magic as he quietly played on for the Sunshine City.

Wow, this is amazing Char. It must have been a surreal moment for sure. Wish I could have been there.

Thanks for the most comprehensive coverage of events as they happen.

I've been extremely busy and not kept up as I usually do but I'm taking a breather for the month of Sept. to relax and visit friends and family in Ontario.

Cheers,

RJ.

Thank you, Char. This is all fabulous! Ian & Sylvia are my #2 favorites. I'm currently listening to Sylvia's "The Very Best of Sylvia Tyson" - for some reason a summer cd for me along with Carly Simon's "Reflections". I've always thought of Sylvia as a complete 50% of that duo with her strong voice and knowledge of the ancient folk songs. Her voice is still pretty strong. Would give anything to have been there! Gord is always #1 of course and so appreciated hearing his song for you - what an emotional event. I appreciate so much all of your work on this site keeping us all up to date with so much information. Just got my tickets for the Oct 7 concert in Sewell, NJ - amazingly close to my home - haven't been to two concerts in one year for some time and am so looking forward to possibly getting another autograph. Thanks again!
CM

It was really special to hear Ian. I've always loved his voice. I enjoyed a few tunes that Sylvia sang (someday soon, river road) but am generally not a huge fan of the female voice ... but when she came out and sang with Ian it was truly a 'moment' for everyone.
Her work with Quartette is nice-this is a Christmas show they did - http://www.cbc.ca/radio2/cod/concerts/20081214qrtet
She did this song at Mariposa - written in response to the Prime Minister's cuts to the arts: lots of stuff at youtube.
thanks for thanks!
Enjoy the concert! - it will be the night before the Letterman show airs!
