Basia Bulat, Wolfe Island Music Fest, 11 August 2007 (full set)

Posted in bootleg, mp3 at 11:17 am by rgsc

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
April 1 – Quebec City , Le Cercle
and visit Rough Trade for US dates in April and May.

    Thanks for this … was hoping for just such a post given the upcoming show. Basia’s so lovely, her music’s insanely good, and I bet even her apple cake is tasty (though that site … I don’t know … Owen Pallett in an apron and Tootsie glasses? … I simply don’t know …).

  2. […] a few tracks from the amazing show at the Grad Club from a year and a half ago (and check out her WIMF2008 set here and from the 2009 Vancouver Folk Fest, courtesy of the Ceeb, here). […]

    Great show, but can you fix the links to tracks 7, 9, qnd 13? They’re broken, or those files are corrupt.


    • John said,

      Actually, track 13 is OK; it’s only tracks 7 and 9 that are not working.


      • rgsc said,

        Tracks 7 & 9 have been reposed. Thanks for letting me know. r
