Halifax Is Burning :: S03E28
On a special two-hour edition of Halifax Is Burning this week, I was fortunate to host an event called The Sappy Warm-Up: two hours of live music, interviews and conversations about Canada's coolest festival - SappyFest - taking place this weekend in Sackville, NB.
Two great bands from Halifax headed to Sackville to perform at Sappy - Long Weekends and Quaker Parents - stopped by the station for a festival primer and a free lobby show. On top of that, my good friend Pinky was in studio as my co-host, and I had a phone chat with one of Sappy's founders, Paul Henderson, about the evolution of the festival. Oh, and he also let's the cat out of the bag and tells me all the juicy details about this year's very special, very secret guest appearance.
Take a listen.
