Mariposa Folk Festival July 5, 6, 7, 2013

     It's been a very cold last few weeks, and as I woke this morning and noticed it was -16 °C
(That's 3°F for my American friends) thoughts of summer started flowing, more precisely thoughts of this year's edition of the Mariposa Folk Festival.

    The last few years I've been writing about the festival, its performers, its history and most importantly its impact on the people that attend it. As the festival travels into its 53rd year (14th back in its home of Orillia) we already have a few performers announced with countless more to be revealed in the coming months. So far the list includes American folk singer Arlo Guthrie, Canadian singer, and songwriter Murray McLauchlan , singer, songwriter Lennie Gallant and The MacKenzie Blues Band (singer Tara MacKenzie just tears it up, so don't miss them).

  The heart of the Mariposa Folk Festival has always been its Volunteers, and so like every other year it's time to start thinking of helping out, you can go HERE and choose the appropriate option – Returning Volunteer or New Volunteer, I volunteered a few years ago and it's lots of fun.

    Tickets for this year's festival are now available; just click on this link Tickets for Mariposa 2013 to get all ready for a great weekend of music, dance, art and fun.

  Sonic More Music will be posting Mariposa Folk Festival updates as they are made available, we will also be at the festival this year to give everyone the inside scoop on North America's premiere Folk Festival, so bookmark the BLOG or LIKE us on Facebook.

    Now here is Billy Bragg from last year's Mariposa Folk Festival performing 'Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards'…enjoy
