For its 11th year, The Larlee Creek Hullabaloo have really outdone themselves. Known as “The Little Festival That Could”, they are certainly living up to the name.
Among the lineup announcements was our neighbours from Maine, Ghost of Paul Revere, who will play on Friday, August 10 along with Cape Bretons Còig, Juno-winning Garrett Mason, New Brunswick’s Tomato/ Tomato, The Gary Sappier Blues Band, and a special Maritime blues trio specially for the Hullabaloo, Terry Whelan, Dan Doiron and Kendra Gale.
Saturday, August 11th, the amazing announcements continue with New Brunswick-based Lisa LeBlanc making her Hullabaloo debut. Saturday will be a great day filled with great music including 2018 Juno winners for Blues, MonkeyJunk, the festival debut of Great Big Sea’s founder, Sean McCann, PEI’s Rachel Beck, and Pretty Archie.
Saturday will also bring a new showcase called “Indigenous Sounds”, a song circle featuring Gary Sappier, Caleb Johnson, Kelsey Saulis, and Emilio Bonnell.
There’s also Morohubu, Cunningham Haines, and Full-Throttle Folk, a jam featuring members of Còig, Tomato/Tomato and Pretty Archie. Speaking of jams, don’t forget the most-loved shows of the weekend, the always-exciting Little and Big Hullabaloos, where you never know who’ll show up to play.
Isn’t that amazing? And that’s just the main stage. Once again, you’ll find the Hullabaloo all over the community of Perth-Andover starting Wednesday, Aug. 8 with free shows and pop-up concerts with headliners. Don’t forget to book a River Cruise, featuring some of the festival stars in intimate, on-board concerts. And there are lots of workshops too, where stars teach you their tricks.
The biggest star of the show is the beautiful St. John River, with the festival grounds right beside one of the most gorgeous valley views in the province. There’s camping right there as well, food and artisan vendors on site, a licensed area for patrons 19 and over, and a shuttle service travelling anywhere up to 15 km from the site.
