Manitoulin Country Fest

Yesterday we posted our Mason Jar Session with Warner Music Canada recording artist Aaron Goodvin. Today we follow that session up with a great chat we had with one Canada’s brightest emerging country artists.  Having spent the last few years writing in Nashville, Aaron has honed his songwriting skills and is set to release his debut album April 8th.  Here is our hang with Mr. Goodvin, enjoy.

Manitoulin Countryfest is situated five minutes from the village of Little Current which is accessible via the swing bridge, the one we passed on the Songwriters Cruise at noon, south of Espanola and southwest of Sudbury. Therefore, all the necessities of life, including several good restaurants, are readily available. We chose Chinese food to fortify us for a return to the Countryfest site for Day Two’s shows which started at 6pm.

We’ve been having a lot of discussion about Boots and Hearts over the past few weeks but there’s another country music festival happening in Ontario this weekend and Sound Check’s Mary-Rae Knapp will be on-site all weekend along with Anita James Bell who will be helping us out on the photography side of things.  The festival is Manitoulin Country Fest and starting this Thursday it will play host to some of the biggest names in Canadian Country Music.
