Ottawa Citizen: Here be Dragon Boats: Music lineup for festival continues to grow
Monday, March 02, 2015
Ottawa’s Dragon Boat Festival continues to surprise with its weekend musical lineup that pound for pound seems to stand up with some of the best on offer in the city.
This year continues that trend with a weekend of free musical performance that includes such artists as Dan Mangan and Blacksmith, Hey Rosetta!, Tokyo Police Club, the Rural Alberta Advantage and Yukon Blonde.
The whole thing takes place June 25 to 28 and will fill up an already crowded calendar.
The festival is actively promoting Canadian talent, says artistic director Antony Cooper.
“We are true believers in the great talent Canada has to offer,” he says.
