Later, co-director Lory MacDonald of the upcoming, can’t miss ArtFest Kingston, hitting City Park this Canada Day weekend.

Coming up after that, Mary has your live music calendar and coverage, featuring an interview with singer-songwriter Emma Cook, in advance of the Kingston date on her Fight Left In Me Tour. Later, hear a performance from the Dave Mowat Trio, and a conversation about how this dynamic blues group came to be.
