The 11th Annual Manitoulin Country Fest is now in the history books. Great Lakes Country 103 (Little Current, ON) does a fantastic job organizing and making this event run as smoothly as possible. This year, 15 acts graced the MCF stage over three days. There were also two cruises, hosted by North Channel Cruise Lines, to take part in – the Wednesday night Fundraiser Dinner Cruise, which this year supported Manitoulin Community Living & Special Olympics; and the Friday Songwriter Showcase.
Friday, after an amazing set on stage, while teaming with rain, thunder and lightning, The Western Swing Authority – or 4/7th’s of them to be exact – came to visit Linda Heldman for an interview filled with great stories and lots of laughs. This is a band that if you don’t know about, you NEED to check them out. Especially, if you are a fan of western swing music.
