I believe I saw 30 different performers, from Mary Chapin Carpenter to Sara Harmer, at this year’s Edmonton Folk Festival. Quite a number of performing artists were new to me, and I’ve blogged about them on previous ‘Song of the Day’ entries. My favourite of all was a band from Asheville, NC, known as River Whyless. It was difficult to find a youtube clip that captured the energy and excitement of their live performance. This is the official video of a song from their brand new CD, “Life Crisis”.
