Mariposa Folk Festival Artist Spotlight:
Lunch at Allen's

        A Mariposa Supergroup? Well if there is a group of musicians at the 2011 Mariposa Folk Festival that could live up to that moniker Lunch at Allen’s might just be that group. 

      Do you know what you get when you take four internationally renowned singer/songwriters and place them on a stage together...what you get is a fantastic set of singing, superb musicianship and storytelling that will keep you talking and smiling for days afterwards. 

      Lunchat Allen’s features Marc Jordan, Murray McLauchlan, Cindy Church and Ian Thomas. Lunch at Allen’s began as just a get together at Allen’s Pub in Toronto with Murray , Ian and Marc jamming , then they added Cindy Church’s beautiful voice to the mix , from that we were given Lunch at Allen’s. 

     The group perform songs from all of their considerable back catalogues; songs that once you hear the first note will transport you back to the time and place when you first heard it. Don’t miss Lunch at Allen’s at this year’s Mariposa Folk Festival. 

This year’s 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.
