When a stranger brags, "I'm in a rock band," you can imagine their sound. Self-proclaimed rockers haven't had much allure this decade. They've become the excitable inappropriate uncles of the music industry. Sudbury, Ontario's Pistol George Warren are not rockers. But they have walked a mile in their shoes.
Emma-Lee has a voice that has to be heard to be believed. Seriously. Her voice is phenomenal. While there are plenty of artists, Canadian and otherwise, who can write well-crafted songs, there are very few who can combine that with a range and tone like Emma-Lee's.
Unfortunately, as we alluded to yesterday, there won't be any big posts for the next couple days from the Winnipeg Folk Festival, as the exhaustion (and let's face it, fun) of camping is taking up a lot of our time over the weekend.
