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”.
