What have you guys been up to this week, you ask? WELL, let me tell ya.. We started by butchering some Mandarin for a commercial we shot in promotion of our debut tour of China next month courtesy of Music Dish China (yay, new places, and experiences!) Curious how poor my Mandarin is? Lookie here
Then, we were invited to perform at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra‘s post-performance “Casual Concert” series at Roy Thomson Hall. That was immense fun, and the classical music fans totally got us. For real.
So the imminent upcoming thing is the annual Folk Music Ontario Conference (Oct 15-18th, 2016) at which we are hosting an incredible private showcase room, Fresh Folk, curated by yours truly, and we’ll be showcasing an excessive amount of times to get our sweet sounds into all the right ears.
Here’s a preview of our poster and line-up for this year – Fresh Folk 2015 is co-hosted by the lovely and talented Sarah Beatty.
In addition, The JSFew will also be playing in the Music Ontario showcase on Saturday night, and in the exhibition hall during the day.
I think for fun, I’m going to reminisce about past folk conferences with some of the past Fresh Folk posters – join me?
