The 2012 Mariposa Folk Festival Mixtape is Here!

The 2012 Mariposa Folk Festival Mixtape is a collection of different artists that will be calling Mariposa their home this July

     Mariposa brings to this year's festival one of this generations great protest singers Billy Bragg, don't miss out as Bragg brings wit and humor to every song he sings.

"Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards" is from Bragg's 1988 album 'Worker's Playtime'.

Track #2  Good Old War:  Coney Island

   Good Old War…an Indie, Roots rock trio from Philadelphia, PA is made up of Tim Arnold, Keith Goodwin,Dan Schwartz. Coney Island is from their debut release 'Only Way To Be Alone'.

Orillia native Aaron Mangoff has been on a crusade to make sure all of us in this area are exposed to some half decent music…and it's paying off, you can catch him at this year's Mariposa Folk Festival.  The haunting track "The Best Part" is from his 2011 release 'Rest Easy' that is available on iTunes

Track #4 Oh Susanna: Lucky Ones (live from the Dakota Sessions)

    I personally have been a fan of Oh Susanna for quite a few years now and have never tired from spreading the word of how really good they are, not just O.K. but really good. Here is Lucky Ones, it's taken from their last studio record 'Soon The Birds'. This is a live version taken from the CMT TV show The Dakota Sessions, it also features Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy.


Remember that this years Mariposa Folk Festival takes place on July 6, 7, and 8th at the beautiful Tudhope Park in Orillia.
