2016 – A Fine Year

I’d kind of forgotten how much I love music. A new job (in music!), some new pals (in music!), another way-too-fun Folk Music Ontario conference and some stunning new albums and performances came and knocked me on the head and said, oh hey, remember us? You live for us.

Oh yeah!!! It’s good to be back.

 I made a giant Spotify playlist of all the great music my friends made this year.  It’s a lot of music. It’s a lot of really, really amazing music. It’s also, I’m pretty sure, 100% Canadian Content. (#MAPL)

Do you have 17 hours? This is the playlist for you!
