Ottawa Folk Festival giveaway!

Hi music lovers:

UPPITYDATE -- I'm making it TWO passes.

I have TWO full-weekend passes to the Ottawa Folk Festival that I want to give you. Here's the info about the pass:

"FOLK CLUB: This 4-day passport offers full access to the Folk Club area at the CUPE Stage. This package includes four transferrable single-day-tickets, one for each day of the event, that with daily wristband grant access to the general admission area plus a separate section that features private bar service, washroom facilities, and a limited number of patio tables and chairs (first come, first served!)."

Sweet deal, huh? It's worth $225 each. All you have to do to win the pair is leave me a comment with the name of the artist you most want to see at the Folk Festival this year.

Good luck, and happy festing.
I'll pick someone Thursday morning from comments received by 6 am Thursday.

I'd really, truly love to see Colin Hay!

Tom Morello!

I'm going to go with Steve Earle, as he's the one guaranteed to shine, then he's got the Dukes and Duchesses on top! Can't. Wait.
If I were feeling more like a gambler at this moment, I'd say Thurston Moore or J Mascis. Looking forward, thanks for running this fun contest!

Royal Wood. Saw him two summers ago at Bluesfest. Fell in love with his sound :) (and I never miss Hawksley Workman when's he's in town...I know...you said one).

Catherine MacLellan gets my vote. Her new album is wonderful. Only thing that would be more wonderful was if she was playing BobCat vs. the Folk Festival!

@carolyn -- I might well be making a pitch to her for a show here in the future. I haven't seen her perform yet. Looking forward to it.

City and Colour!

Its a toss up! I've been a big Matt Costa fan since I can remember, but bright eyes is a more recent favorite.

I've tried seeing Matt Costa so many times, just never seems to work out! Maybe, just maybe, this time it'll work out! :)

Love Steve Earle but I'm going to go with Vance Gilbert. So glad he's coming back!

A complete toss-up between Steve Earle and Levon Helm. Two amazing artists I've never seen before (shameful). I'd also love to win because this will be my first time attending Folk Festival! The passes would make a memorable first experience for sure.

Bob - if you can get Catherine MacLellan for BobCat I'll be forever in your debt. Hope you enjoy her show - she's pure magic!

I'm gonna go with Bright Eyes, though I have been close to seeing Hawksley Workman several times and it never works out so that would be awesome too. As with all festivals the best will probably be something unexpected, discovering new music it what a festival is all about
