festival day

Standard

Welcome to my yesterday. First, the Folklife Festival, where I heard among others things, French-Canadian music with step dancing (Podorythmie), rockabilly group Marshall Scott Warner, the Runaway Train Bluegrass Band, Portland’s Truckstop Darlin’, and the Softies:

I made a paper boat and watched it going down the drain
So goodbye, wishing you well and hello rain

Then a crowded bus ride to see a SIFF movie, “Take This Waltz.” Superb acting. Great performances all around but Michelle Williams really carries the film. I had a few complaints, but it’s well worth it overall. Hurray for Toronto, by the way. Made me want to visit. Oh yeah, comedian Sarah Silverman has a role and does a nice job with a part that fits her personality well. Directed by Sarah Polley.
