Larlee Creek Hullabaloo is known as the “little festival that could”, and it’s not hard to see why when you see the immense talent that it offers. Larlee Creek Hullabaloo takes place in Perth-Andover, NB and brings out the best of the best when it comes to East Coast talent! We are excited to team up with the festival to present you with a series of interviews that we conducted with some of the performers. To start things off, we chatted with Halifax based Christine Campbell, then Toronto based Samantha Martin of Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar! Today, we are happy to present our interview with Halifax’s own, Hillsburn. Enjoy!
First off, care to introduce yourself to the Canadian Beats readers?
We’re Hillsburn, an indie-rock band from Halifax.
Larlee Creek Hullabaloo may be a “little” festival, but it’s jam packed with talent, what does it feel like to be involved in this particular festival?
It feels great to be associated with a bunch of acts we look up to.
Are there any specific artists/bands that you’re excited to see at Larlee Creek Hullabaloo?
I’m looking forward to seeing Matt Minglewood. My dad played him when were kids. He’s a legend around here.
Are you performing at any other festivals this summer that you’d like to tell us about?
We’re actually playing the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival the same weekend we’re at the Larlee Creek Hullabaloo! We’ll be getting up early to head back there after our set on Friday night.
If someone has yet to see you live, how would you describe your live show?
It’s just a big sound. Someone said that we yell in three-part harmony, which is a pretty fair description! There are a lot of layers, a lot of things happening all the time.
If you were only able to recommend ONE song for a new listener, which would you choose?
At this point, “Sun Ought To Shine”, which will be on the record that we recently finished recording. We made a live video for it this part spring.
Here at Canadian Beats, we’re all about Canadian talent, who are some of your favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Hey Rosetta, Kathleen Edwards, July Talk, Arkells.
What’s up next for you?
More festivals throughout the rest of the summer, and then we’ll probably start rolling out our new album this fall.
