Calgary Songs Project: The Concert

Phew! We've finally recovered from Friday evening's Calgary Songs Project concert - that is, the hangover has faded and our face is no longer sore from smiling ear-to-ear all night. Thanks to One Yellow Rabbit and the High Performance Rodeo for giving us the chance to have an even like this in their festival, to Kenna Burima for all of her work coordinating the evening, the bands and everyone who came to the show.
