2011 Mariposa Folk Festival..Still Adding More Artists

       Word came down the Mariposa Folk Festival Pipe today that besides the three artists that were chosen to perform at this year’s festival during the Mariposa Showcase, those artists being Brett Caswell & the Marquee Rose, Mike Celia, and The Rucksack Willies,  five more artists have now been announced, those artists are 3 Gars su’l Sofa, Yvan VollĂ© ,ALEX The Folk Band, Hard Ryde and Michael Jerome Browne, and according to Mariposa's publicist there will be more additions to this years already stellar line-up announced in the coming days.

     With the addition of the two francophone acts today (t3 Gars su’l Sofa & Yvan VollĂ© hat) it just shows us all how Mariposa is a true melting pot of different musical genres and cultural identities, and that is always something that I have enjoyed about the festival,  especially now as a father of a young son whom I want exposed to as many styles and cultures as possible. 

    This year the Mariposa Folk Festival takes place July 8-10, Orillia, Ontario. This year’s line-up includes Emmylou Harris, Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band, Peter Yarrow, Lunch at Allen’s, John McDermott, Ron Hynes, Garnet Rogers, Adonis Puentes and many more on eleven stages throughout the beautiful Tudhope Park on the shores of Lake Couchiching. 

There will be Audience camping available at nearby Burl’s Creek Family Event Park
