Julie Doiron’s album most recent So Many Days is a favorite around here at the office because of its soft beauty and touching honest. Check out the song “By the Lake”, which it is a touching love song that moves from a rock to a log, to a house to a bed! Her gentle sound is easy to enjoy, and all of her ten albums are fantastic and varied. One of the founders of SappyFest, Julie is no stranger to the local music scene. Julie just moved back to Sackville, and her first return show is coming up this weekend!

On Sunday, April 7th, Julie Doiron and the Wilderness of Manitoba are going to be rocking your socks off at Struts Gallery, which is an all ages venue. The show will cost $10 at the door or $8 in advance, and the advance tickets are available at the Black Duck Inn. The Wilderness of Manitoba are a self-described Canadian “chamber folk” quintet. Their rich, complex harmonies serve as the anchor for their wickedly pretty northern folk songs. They sound part Fleet Foxes and part Great Lakes Swimmers with a tiny bit of Cloud Cult-inspired unpredictability tossed in for good measure. The concert is a fundraiser for CHMA, so you know the money is going towards a good cause. This concert will be one of the best, and you won’t want to miss it!
