Basia Bulat, Wolfe Island Music Fest, 11 August 2007 (full set)
A while ago I posted a few songs from Basia Bulat‘s wonderful performance at the Wolfe Island Music Fest. In anticipation of her return to Kingston on March 28th (with Katie Stelmanis who I talked about here) I am going to share with you the rest of the set. Everything about Bulat’s performance was excellent. She has an amazing, strong voice which, combined with lush and inventive instrumentation, make her quite unlike anything else I’ve come across. She makes soulful folk music backed with lush orchestration and it is quite frankly wonderful. Go see for yourself:
Mar 26 – Peterborough, The Montreal House
Mar 27 – Ottawa, Zaphod’s
Mar 28 – Kingston, The Grad Club
Mar 29 – Toronto, Lee’s Palace
April 3 – Hamilton, The Casbah
April 4 – London, ON, Call the Office
April 5 – Guelph, The Stage
April 12 – Montreal, Sala Rossa
