Plaskett and Folkfest and ankles, oh my

August 24th, 2009

I had every intention of checking out much of Sunday at the Ottawa Folk Festival this year, having already missed out on Friday and Saturday (with acts like Amy Millan and Kinnie Starr among others…) due to prior engagements. Then I turned my dang ankle in an ultimate frisbee game on Sunday afternoon, and wimped out on the idea of standing in a crowd for hours on end.

The couple of hours I did catch were worth the ensuing throbbing foot — the highlight for me was, as my friends will guess, Joel Plaskett (whom I’ve posted about before). A few of the many videos I caught:

Rewind Rewind Rewind

Natural Disaster

Nothing More to Say to You

There were masses of people in lawn chairs who had been settled in the crowd all day… and from what I could tell, I think Joel won over many a new fan. He and his Dad were in fine form, despite being teemed by mosquitos throughout the show. Too bad some of the more eager Plaskett fans who wanted to dance were asked by security staff to sit; this might be a sign for the fest to have a standing/dancing area in future.

Wonderful hosting by dear friend Amanda Putz and new cookie buddy Tom Power:

As I hobbled off the festival grounds, I lamented missing out on Mr. Something Something at the Dance Tent, but was pleasantly impressed by the sounds of Jason Lang.

Hopefully, the Ottawa Folk Festival will have just as impressive a line-up next year… and I’ll be able to catch a lot more of it!

    Some of the folks (pun intended) we loved and images that stick are:

    * Jason Lang bringing his son up on stage during a workshop while Jason’s Mom, Matt’s grandma, the legendary Penny Lang sat in the audience to watch two generations of her progeny perform a Pete Seeger classic

    * Jason Lang’s adorable daughter dancing up a storm to Maori singer / beatboxer / looper Mihirangi in the dance tent

    * hanging out with the Good Lovelies back at the Brookstreet and forcing Tom Power to admit that MY Stewart MacLean impression was better… at least at that moment.

    * hearing Victoria Vox and James Hill BOTH rip up the stage on ukes, with cellos as their partners

    * lying on my blanket listening to Bruce Cockburn’s AMAZING guitar skills and watching satellites track overhead

    * seeing David Ross MacDonald get a standing ovation from the hall stage crowd after a set full of some serious pickin’ and some charming singing

    * The tweener stage where two Malian musicians spellbound the crowd between the Lovelies and Bruce Cockburn

    * Joel Plaskett almost instantly winning the crowd over after a way-too-long sound check…

    That’s cool you put up some videos. :D
    I thought there were fans standing up but it was all lawn chairs and it was very laid back. Then I see the standing crowd over near the Moon Tent.
    My blog entry on Joel Plaskett at Folk Fest is not that glamourous (quality and style-wise). ;)

    Best part of the festival was seeing Joel Plaskett live.
    Surprised with the turnout.
    Did you videotaped Through & Through & Through?

    Bob-o, I obviously need to hear your Stewart MacLean impression… since Tom Power’s is a little legendary.

    Ming, sorry I missed Through/Through/Through. I took vids of a half dozen songs, but not that one…
